Last week, the first Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC character released worldwide, but for some users, it wasn’t a particularly nice day, as playing the Piranha Plant in All-Stars Mode can result in the game’s save file becoming corrupted. Nintendo didn’t say much about the matter, but it finally commented on it in the past few hours.
Speaking with Newsweek, a Nintendo of America representative confirmed that the publisher is aware of the issues, but has been unable to confirm any issue following testing. The issue, however, will continue to be under investigation.
We are aware that some users are posting about possible issues with the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate update. After extensive testing, Nintendo has not been able to confirm that there is an issue, although we will continue to investigate and monitor the situation.
The Piranha Plant is a rather welcome addition to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster. The character has been made available for free to all those who purchased the game before last week; it can also be purchased separately.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now available in all regions exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
