Nintendo has started off the month of February by finally releasing Piranha Plant to pre-order players of Super Smash Bros. UItimate. The new fighter joined the fight in update 2.0.0 that has now been made live.

As expected, Nintendo have released a new update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The update brings the game to version 2.0.0 and comes with numerous changes to fighters across the board and the addition of Piranha Plant. Nintendo has celebrated the addition of the new fighter with the above post on the Nintendo Versus Twitter page, the post showcases Piranha Plant being added to the character roster.

According to some users that have downloaded the update, using Piranha Plant in All-Star mode has unfortunately corrupted their save files. Piranha Plant isn't the only fighter doing this as well, according to some other reports, using Mii Swordfighter and Duck Hunt in Centruary Smash can also corrupt your save files. Since this just isn't a few people complaining about this bug, I would advise using Piranha Plant and the other listed characters in those specific game modes until Nintendo issue out a hotfix for the problems.
