In the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Direct on November 1st, 2018, series director Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that paid DLC would be available for Ultimate. The initial wave of content comes in the form of five Challenger Pack bundles, each containing one entirely unique fighter, one stage, and several music tracks. These bundles, which are also available through a complete pack known as the Fighters Pass, were released periodically through January 28th, 2020. Additionally, Piranha Plant was available for free as a limited time early purchase bonus, and is currently available for purchase separate from the Fighters Pass. On November 6th, 2018, Sakurai announced on his Twitter account that the initial DLC line-up was finalized, and that potential fighters were proposed by Nintendo, with Sakurai passing final approval on them.[1]

During the Nintendo Direct on September 4th, 2019, Nintendo revealed that more DLC fighters were set to be in production after the first Fighters Pass, due to Ultimate's strong sales.[2] As with before, Nintendo proposed the potential fighters and Sakurai passed final approval.[3] On January 16th, 2020, Fighters Pass Vol. 2 was announced, with the previous Fighters Pass retroactively being dubbed Vol. 1.[4] The Pass will include six Challenger Packs, and was made available for purchase on January 28th, 2020. These six packs are planned to be released by December 31st, 2021. According to Sakurai, this will be the last DLC released for Ultimate[5] and also according to Sakurai himself, the DLC characters for the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 may face delay or development that will be stopped indefinitely due to the COVID-19 outbreak.[6]

Updates[edit]

Updates to the game are downloadable at no extra cost. In order to use DLC, the game must be updated to the latest version, which can be done automatically by starting the game from the system's Home Menu, or manually triggered from the Switch's Home Menu. Most updates also adjust game balance and mechanics, while fixing glitches and other errors as well. Changelogs for all updates are available at the links above.

As with any other game, DLC data is added via free updates. Completing a transaction to receive DLC is merely a "ticket" to grant access to said content. What this means is that DLC not purchased in an updated version is still technically installed but locked, and thus is accessible indirectly. Content that is locked can be seen and played against with opponents connecting via a system that has paid for the DLC (within Wireless and Online modes). Aside from this, locked content can also be seen using amiibo as Figure Players, and saving uploaded or shared replays.

Fighters[edit]

Just like in Smash 4, DLC characters (with the exception of Piranha Plant) have no unique Palutena's Guidance conversations and instead use the generic one.

Early Purchase Bonus[edit]

It was available as a free bonus until January 31st, 2019 to anyone who purchased the digital version of Ultimate or registered their physical version with MyNintendo. While Piranha Plant is not part of any Fighters Pass or any Challenger Pack (and thus does not come with a stage, music, or spirits), it was made available for purchase separately on February 1st, 2019.

Stages[edit]

Fighters Pass Vol. 1[edit]

PersonaSymbol.svg Mementos (April 17th, 2019)
Mementos comes as a set with Joker as part of Challenger Pack 1. Mementos has one main platform with a slant in the middle similar to Meta Crystal, with one platform over the center and another over the left side. Trains periodically appear in the background, the set below the stage being able to damage fighters. Occasionally, a large triangle-shaped wall appears at the top or on the sides of the stage. The trains and the walls will never appear at the same time.
  • If a song from Persona 3 or Persona 4 is playing during a match, the color scheme of Mementos will change from red to blue or yellow respectively, the respective primary colors for each game. The decoration in the background also changes to either a moon or the streaks found in Persona 4's UI. If Joker wins a match with the alternate music, the victory pose screen and subsequent music change accordingly to the ones found in the home series.
DragonQuestSymbol.svg Yggdrasil's Altar (July 30th, 2019)
Yggdrasil's Altar comes as a set with the Hero as part of Challenger Pack 2. It consists of a flat main platform that travels over the world of Erdrea, with smaller platforms appearing on occasion. Treasure chests may appear on one of these platforms, opening them will release an item. However, these chests may sometimes be Mimics that can damage fighters; defeating them will cause them to drop an item.
BanjoKazooieSymbol.svg Spiral Mountain (September 4th, 2019)
Spiral Mountain comes as a set with Banjo & Kazooie as part of Challenger Pack 3. The fight takes place on the peak of the titular mountain. The stage will rotate every so often, which determines whether or not fighters can stand on the slope of the mountain. Soft platforms and a bridge to Gruntilda's Lair will also appear on occasion.
FatalFurySymbol.svg King of Fighters Stadium (November 6th, 2019)
The King of Fighters Stadium comes as a set with Terry as part of Challenger Pack 4. It is a stadium based on "The King of Fighters" tournament. The stage is completely flat, and there are no bottom blast zones. The blast zones on the sides are blocked off by an invisible wall that can be broken when opponents are given high enough knockback.
FireEmblemSymbol.svg Garreg Mach Monastery (January 28th, 2020)
Garreg Mach Monastery comes as a set with Byleth as part of Challenger Pack 5. It is a traveling stage taking place in the primary location of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, stopping specifically at the Marketplace, the Reception Hall, the Bridge, and the Cathedral. All locations have walk-off blastlines, with the Marketplace featuring destructible booths, the Reception Hall having chandeliers that can be dropped, and the Cathedral making use of semi-solid platforms.

Challenger Packs[edit]

Every fighter, with the exception of Piranha Plant, is bundled with a stage, music tracks, and spirits belonging to the character related as a DLC Spirit Board. In addition to Fighter Spirits, other Spirits also can purchased from the Vault Shop even if no Challenger Packs were purchased. There are five Challenger Packs in total in the Fighters Pass Vol. 1, and six in Fighters Pass Vol. 2. Both are priced at a discount, with the prices being equivalent to getting one of the Challenger Packs for free.

Trivia[edit]

  • Following the announcement of the Hero and Banjo & Kazooie, the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Official Site went from listing six DLC characters (Piranha Plant, Joker, and four "unknown"/empty slots) to listing eight (adding the Hero and Banjo & Kazooie without removing any of the empty slots). As there was no corresponding announcement of additional downloadable characters, this was likely an error, and it was later fixed.
    • Additional downloadable characters beyond the Fighters Pass Vol. 1 were announced alongside Terry, but this was almost certainly a coincidence, as Terry's addition to the site did not come with any additional blank slots, and after Byleth's announcement, it was specified that six characters will be part of the Fighters Pass Vol. 2.
  • The first four DLC fighters' artwork on the panoramic artwork have depicted two characters: Piranha Plant is seen watering a Pikmin, Joker is joined by Morgana, the Hero is joined by a Slime, and both Banjo and Kazooie are depicted. Terry and Byleth both break this pattern.
    • Coincidentally, Terry is also the first character to not involve at least one other character to assist him in his Final Smash, as Piranha Plant summons Petey Piranha, Joker summons the Phantom Thieves in one of two groups of three, the Hero summons the seven other Heroes not represented as costumes, and Banjo and Kazooie summon a group of Jinjos and The Mighty Jinjonator. Byleth, while also only featured by himself in the panoramic artwork, is powered up by Sothis in his Final Smash.
  • Byleth is the only first-party character in the Fighters Pass Vol. 1, and currently one of the only two first-party DLC characters in the game (alongside Piranha Plant).
    • However, Banjo-Kazooie was originally a second-party Nintendo property prior to Rare's acquisition by Microsoft.
  • Thus far, every DLC fighter on the Fighters Pass has had a cinematic Final Smash. Additionally, every DLC stage has featured other characters making cameos on the stage.
  • The 4th Challenger of the Fighters Pass Vol. 1, Terry, currently holds the most music added as downloadable content in both Ultimate and SSB4's history, with a total of 50 tracks.
    • Similarly, Fatal Fury has the highest music count out of any third party company across both games, due to the various tracks from multiple series.
  • The 5th Challenger, Byleth, is currently the only Fighters Pass character to be revealed in their presentation.
  • Byleth's Challenger Pack is the only one so far to include music tracks that can play in multiple stages.
