Prepare for the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Prepare your Nintendo Switches, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches in T minus 24 hours

We are now only just 24 hours away from the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and the hype has reached pinnacle. Its time to prepare for battle.


Some lucky users managed to get their hands-on a copy of Ultimate before the official release date due to the full game being leaked from Mexican retailers, more on that story here. If you are like the rest of the world though and are patiently counting down the hours until your game unlocks, then there might be some things you want to check out on your Switch beforehand.

Firstly, just make sure you Nintendo Switch is updated to the latest firmware. This will ensure that when you are playing Ultimate you will be receiving the best performance the Switch can offer. A side note to this, I would not be surprised if Nintendo rolled out a small firmware update shortly after Ultimate is launched, this update would be to iron out bugs that popped up during the launch process, typical game launch procedure kind of stuff.

Next, make sure you have enough storage on your Nintendo Switch or have picked up an microSD card. It sounds silly, but there will be those players out there that have filled their Switch and go to install Ultimate but won't have enough room. Next, make sure you pick up Nintendo Switch Online, despite the garbage retro-games that Nintendo are offering you will not be able to enjoy online competitive without Nintendo Switch Online. Personally, I'm going to wait until after I have completed World of Light before I grab online, but that is just me personally.
