Piranha Plant Now Available In Version 2.0.0 Of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Piranha Plant is now available as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! You’ll have to update your game to version 2.0.0 (it should do so automatically when you try to boot it up) and you will also have needed to register your copy of the game. Details on how to do so are below. If you miss out on registering or buying the game in time, the fighter will be made available for purchase at a later date.


Buy early, get Piranha Plant for free!

And finally, here’s one more thing to chomp on. Register the game by Jan. 31 and Piranha Plant will join the battle! There are two ways to get this toothy fighter:

2) Buy the retail version and register the game card with My Nintendo before 11:59 PM PT on Jan. 31, 2019.
