Super Smash Bros


 

A big update is heading to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and players will need to back up some of their data ahead of time.

Nintendo hasn’t released many details about the update, dubbed version 1.2.0. We don’t even know the exact release date, just that it will be out within the week—which means around or before December 18th. However, from Nintendo’s warnings, it seems that the update will affect players’ replays.

“Once you update the software, you won’t be able to watch replays made with previous versions,” the warning reads.

There is a way for players to save their favorite replays, but it will take a little bit of work. Players need to go into the Vault, then to Replays, then to Replay Data, then select the option to Convert to Video. Any replays that are converted in this way will make it through the update, but those that aren’t saved will presumably be wiped out.

The rest of the update’s changes are currently unknown. Nintendo will release patch notes when the update goes live sometime within the next week.
