Super Smash Bros Ultimate will get Byleth in an update today as part of the Fighter Pass. Here’s what you need to know about the update.
After a lot of rumors and speculation, Nintendo had revealed the final character for the Fighter Pass earlier in January. This ended up being Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses. There will be two different variants for Byleth with a male and female form.
This update also adds a lot of new spirits including Edelgard, Dimitri, Claude, and more. Other than the DLC related additions and game balance adjustments for various characters, the overall changes made in this update are rather minor.
These are spirits that appeared in a previous spirit event that was held for a limited time.
Nintendo has announced a second Fighter Pass for Super Smash Bros Ultimate that will add more fighters to the game. This fighter pass will be detailed later this year. It should add another five new fighters to the game.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate is currently one of the largest fighting games not just in terms of sales but also with a character roster of 80 fighters.
