The new patch adds a hard mode the game’s Adventure Mode (World of Light). A new Mii Fighter costume from Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s Rex has also been added. Players can also now receive gifts from other players and spirt event data.

There have also been various game balance adjustments and bug fixes.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate just rolled this morning and has already topped the charts on Amazon- selling more copies than other games and accessories (including digital cards) across all platforms, and marking the record for the best pre-sales history of any SSB game in Nintendo history.
