Smash Bros. Ultimate 3.0 Update: Joker, Stage-Builder, Video Editor, And More Added
"New Content Approaching."
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has released its version 3.0 patch, which is packed with new bells and whistles, including a new character. The update includes a free stage-builder and video editor for all players. It also adds the first DLC character, Joker from Persona 5. He's available as a standalone purchase for $6, or as part of the five-pack Fighter's Pass for $25. Joker also comes with a new Mementos stage, which features music from throughout the Persona series.
The stage-builder lets you create custom stages to battle on. In handheld mode, you can draw on the tablet screen using your finger to create new stages. The tools are robust enough to make all kinds of things, it looks like, and the tools support multiple layers to edit your stages in an even deeper way. Created stages are stored in a new "Custom" tab on the Stage Select screen. You can also view and download other people's creations, though you'll need Nintendo Switch Online to do that. The video below shows how it all works.
Additionally, the video shows off how the new video-editing tools work, while it also reveals you'll be able to queue up stage downloads from the Smash World part of the Nintendo Switch Online app. You can also view recommended Stages and watch videos from Smash World.
Version 3.0 also adds new Mii Fighter Costumes to buy, including the Morgana Hat from Persona 5, the main protagonist costume and the Teddie Hat from Persona 4, and another protagonist outfit from Persona 3. You can also buy Tails and Knuckles outfits from Sonic the Hedgehog. The costumes cost 75 cents each in the US.
Here is a video showcasing the new Mii Fighter Costumes:
With more than 12 million copies sold worldwide, Smash Bros. Ultimate is one of the best-selling Nintendo Switch games ever.
