Well this is a nice way to wake up, Nintendo and developer Sakurai announced that the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version 3.0 will be launching tomorrow, including the first character of the fighter pass, Joker!
The version 3.0 update will be adding a Stage Editor, a Video Editor and Smash World, a new service on the Nintendo Switch Online App where you can share your created content with friends, they then can follow you, download stages and rate your video’s and stages so that they appear to more users in the rankings list.
Joker will only be available through the Fighter Pass which costs $24.99 or a separate purchase costs $5.99. The Joker update also includes a new ‘Momentos’ stage as well as 11 sound tracks from Persona 3, 4 and 5. A ful blow out video and overview update you can find below. With all this info giving out like that, a Nintendo Direct seems less and less likely to happen before E3!
After downloading the free Version 3.0 update on April 17, the following features, among others, will also be added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate:
Stage Builder: Players with big ideas for a personalized 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 customized 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 further decorate their stages. 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 app.**
Video Editor: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate video content that has been saved to a Nintendo Switch system can now be spliced together into a fun timeline presentation. Subtitles and sound effects can also be added to personalize the video, which can be exported and shared with the world through the new Smash World service for the Nintendo Switch Online 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.**
