Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Version 3.0 Brings Stage Builder and More

Posted by: Sam Tree | 17 April 2019

In a video released today, Nintendo has outlined what to expect in the upcoming version 3.0 update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate alongside the contents of their first paid DLC for the title.

The first DLC character for SSBU will be released alongside the version 3.0 update, Joker, from Persona 5, as well as a new stage and several Persona series music tracks. Players who own the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Fighters Pass (£22.49) or the Challenger Pack 1: Joker (£5.39) will be able to access the additional content in-game after the update lands. The paid DLC pack will also come with a number of Mii Fighter Costumes.

Due to go live tomorrow, the 18th of April, the update will include a number of additions, including a stage builder as well as a new sharing space called Smash World that will allow players to download customer stages and videos made by players from around the world. The full patch info can be found below.

  • Stage Builder: Players with big ideas for a personalised Super Smash Bros. Ultimate stage can let their creativity run wild with the new Stage Builder mode. By using in-game tools, players can add moving platforms, spinning traps and other unique features to their customised stages. By playing in handheld mode, budding designers can even use the touch screen to freely draw and create, and use front and back layers to decorate their stages further. Designed stages will be available to play in a new tab on the Stage Select screen and can be shared online via the new Smash World service for the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app.
  • Edit Video: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate video content that has been saved to a Nintendo Switch console can now be spliced together into a fun timeline presentation. Subtitles and sound effects can also be added to personalise the video, which can be exported and shared with the world through the new Smash World service for the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app.
  • Smash World: Players can view shared videos and download stages created in Stage Builder to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in Smash World, a new service in the Nintendo Switch Online app. In Smash World, players can view recommended videos and even download custom stages shared by others online, giving players more ways than ever before to share their Super Smash Bros. Ultimate experience with friends.
