No other Smash Ultimate leaks have been found in the patch. However, Sakurai previously stated in a Famitsu interview that the release patch will also apply a bug fix to the game.
The patch allows players to record match replays with seamless quality. While they’ll take up a fair bit of space on the hard drive, this will be a great perk for those who want to store their highlight reels.
More Super Smash Bros Ultimate Updates to Come?
The Day One patch is a good sign for players. While the release patch may not add much, it shows new content could be added regularly via online updates.
Many fans hope for more Smash Bros Ultimate Snake Codecs, which could be brought to the game via downloadable patches. We might also get regular new Spirits and music tracks.
Of course, there’s also the Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC Packs to look forward to, although these will cost players a few bucks.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate Release Date & Time
