Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Version 10.0.0 patch notes

Save your replays

It's a very exciting day for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the third character of Fighters Pass Vol. 2, Sephiroth, was both showcased and technically released.

This new update is already available to download and we've got a few quick patch notes thanks to Nintendo. To be clear, these don't involve any balance changes, though such a patch very well may come at a later date.

Today's notes mainly focus on how you can gain access to Sephiroth before his official release date on December 23. Masahiro Sakurai and his team have thought up something new for Ultimate as they showed off the "Sephiroth Challenge," a mini mode boss battle that, when successfully completed, grants you access to the One-Winged Angel and his new Northern Cave stage.

Something to note about today's notes, there's usually a "Game balance adjustments have been made" line whenever the existing roster has received any balance changes. Said line is conspicuously absent this time around, further leading us to believe that these kinds of changes will be en route at a later time.

You can view the full list below:

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Version 10.0.0 Patch Notes

• The Sephiroth Challenge mode event has been added for a limited time.

• You can attempt this mode if you've purchased the Sephiroth Challenger Pack or the Fighters Pass Vol. 2. Defeating Sephiroth will unlock him as a playable fighter and grant access to his stage.

• This mode will appear on the upper left of the main menu. Press the + Button to take on the challenge.

• Once the event period is over, the mode will become unavailable, but Sephiroth and his stage will be unlocked immediately for anyone who has purchased the Sephiroth Challenger Pack or the Fighters Pass Vol. 2.

• Several issues have been fixed to improve gameplay experience.
