On January 25th, 2019, Nintendo announced that the patch 2.0.0 update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be distributed sometime within a week from now.
Much like the previous patch, we know very little about patch 2.0.0, the only known information is that replays made in earlier patches won’t be compatible anymore. If you want to keep your replays, it’s recommended to convert them to videos before you download patch 2.0.0. While that’s all the information we currently know, we can reasonably assume there will be gameplay adjustments in some form due to the replays not being compatible, but whether those are balance changes or just bug-fixes is up in the air. Something else to note is that the number jumped up all the way up to 2.0.0, which indicates that this patch will likely bring larger changes than before, and with that in mind it doesn’t seem too far-fetched of a possibility for this patch to be the one that adds Piranha Plant to Smash Ultimate.
Author’s Note: What are you hoping will or won’t happen in 2.0.0? Are you like the author and hope there won’t be any major nerfs in this update?
