Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Might Revive These Classic Modes (VIDEO)
Sporting an absolutely packed roster, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate may be one of the most featureful titles on the Nintendo Switch, but there’s still plenty more waiting in the future. A slate of amiibo figures as well as an array of new fighters have been teased for sometime in the future, amongst them being the exciting addition of Joker from the Persona series.
However, it now appears Nintendo has plans to reintroduce a pair of classic modes that fans haven’t seen for a number of years now. According to a recent datamine courtesy of SourceGaming, the likes of Home Run Contest and Stage Builder may be making a return in a future update. The discovery originates from a pair of references buried with the game’s files; one referring to Home Run Contest and another to Stage Builder. Check it out in the video below.
While not exactly the most conclusive of findings, the above video’s evidence does seem to indicate plans for the two modes, whether they were initially cut from the original release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate or are being saved for a future update. SourceGaming speculates the previously-teased 3.0 update could be when Home Run and Stage Builder modes eventually go live, if they do it all.
Originally introduced during Super Smash Bros. Melee, Home Run Contest had been a popular inclusion of the series for its simple, but but competitive concept. The mode presents a lone Sandbag and tasks players to smack the object as far as possible, offering up the game’s Home-Run Bat as a possible weapon. On the other hand, the Stage Builder allowed for anyone to create and share their own custom fighting stage, not unlike Nintendo’s Super Mario Maker.
It’s not yet known if either of these modes are actually on the way for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, but fans would almost surely enjoy seeing their return. The only confirmed DLC in the works is the planned Fighters Pass which is only set to introduce five total fighters to the roster. Joker from Persona 5 has been the only announcement from the pack, bute more, including the availability of these mode, is sure to arrive sometime soon.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is out now for Nintendo Switch.
