Piranha Plant was previously available free for anyone who bought the game before January 31st. However, those who bought a physical copy must have registered their points on their My Nintendo Account. Players can still redeem their code until June if they got one previously.
Those who buy Super Smash Bros Ultimate can still get Piranha Plant. However, they’ll need to buy the character as an individual DLC Fighter.
You can buy Piranha Plant from the Nintendo eShop. Currently, a notification in Smash Bros Ultimate takes you straight to the shop page to buy Piranha Plant.

The Piranha Plant DLC will cost $4.99 for players in the US or £4.49 for players in the UK. You can purchase the DLC in the Nintendo eShop.
Five new DLC characters are set to come before February 2020, the first of these being Joker from Persona 5. These will cost $5.99 or £5.39 along with a new stage and music tracks.
The five new Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC characters will also be available in the Fighters Pass for $24.99 or £22.49. Piranha Plant won’t be a part of the Fighters Pass.
Who Are The Next Smash Bros Ultimate DLC Characters?
