These days, it’s pretty much expected for games to receive a day one patch as soon as they launch. As such, it should come as no surprise that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be getting one. In an interview with Famitsu, via ComicBook, creator Masahiro Sakurai confirmed the existence of the day one patch for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
One of the reasons for the patch, he states, is to fix an issue with the game’s replays. That said, he also confirmed that the patch was only for the physical release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Players who bought the digital version will already received the patched version of the game. The digital version of the game itself clocks in at around 13 gigabytes, so players should be sure to clear enough space for it.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches on December 7, 2018.
