LOS ANGELES: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version 1.2.0 is live now, including fixes for online connectivity issues, several character adjustments, and Pikachu and Eevee Spirits for Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! players. 

Version 1.2.0 contains adjustments for Greninja, Link, Donkey Kong, Kirby, Luigi, Ice Climbers, Young Link, Olimar, Toon Link, Pac-Man, Duck Hunt, Isabelle, and Villager, but there are currently few details on what kind of tweaks were made to each character. 

Those looking to add new Spirits to their burgeoning collections can expect a free Pikachu (Partner) or Eevee (Partner) Spirit, depending on which Pokemon game they played on their Nintendo Switch. Those with Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! saved data will receive a Pikachu Spirit, while those with Pokemon: Let’s Go, Eevee! saved data will be given an Eevee Spirit. 

In terms of online connection stability, the update features “matchmaking improvements to further prioritise Preferred Rules in Quickly”. 

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available now as a Nintendo Switch exclusive, and includes the biggest roster of characters to date. It’s brought back all previous stages seen in the older games in the series as well as a selection of new ones, with additional fighters to boot. During “The Game Awards 2018”, it was revealed that Persona 5 protagonist Joker would be joining the official selection of characters as well when the game’s Challenger Pack 1 first arrives. – Variety/Reuters
