Coming in hot with the latest 2.0.0 update, Piranha Plant has now been added to the, frankly, massive Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster giving us a current total of seventy-five fighters.

Once the update has been installed, the next time Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is started, our new leafy friend will be available. Piranha Plant is immediately unlocked in the Spirits Adventure mode, but unfortunately, no new spirits or locations have been added to the Adventure Mode map. But at least that’s one less character to unlock, right?

While the 2.0.0 update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is mostly fun and games, there’s a strong word of warning for fans of All-Star Smash mode. Make sure you wait for the next update before playing as Piranha Plant in All-Star mode, as there have been reports of saves becoming corrupted after playing as the potted pugilist in this mode and this mode alone.

Not content with just upping the roster by one, there’s another new feature added with the latest update. You can now play with up to four players in the Spirit Board mode, just in case you need that extra bit of help against those impossible to beat Legendary Spirits. Although this comes with the caveat that if one single player on your team is KOed the challenge is finished for everyone.

I am finally one step closer to my dream coming true of having Audrey II from Little Shop of Horrors in a fighting game. We have a little time to wait for Persona 5’s Joker to join the fray. Who else do you think will be joining the roster?
