Super Smash Bros Ultimate: Here's The Only Tiny Change Update 6.1.1 Patch Introduces

It's just for amiibo fans.


Super Smash Bros Ultimate has received a tiny new update, and you might be wondering what has changed. Update 6.1.1 for the hit Switch fighter is such a small change, though, that most players will not notice it. Don't worry about tier changes or balance shifts that will affect how you play--this update is just for amiibo support.

Update 6.1.1 implements support for the Dark Samus and Richter amiibo, both of which release on January 17. The update will allow you to use both amiibo in-game, leveling them up and fighting against them as you would with any other amiibo fighter.

Releasing January 17, 2020

  • Dark Samus amiibo

Get it at Best Buy--$16

  • Richter amiibo

Get it at Best Buy--$16

The majority of Super Smash Bros Ultimate fighters have now received amiibo, except for the characters available in the Season Pass--Joker, Hero, Banjo-Kazooie, Terry, and an unannounced fifth fighter, and whoever else Nintendo will release in the future.

This update is necessary to play the game online. Local wireless play is not compatible with earlier versions, and replay compatibility is available for replays saved on ver. 6.1.0, but not 6.0.0 or earlier.
