News is a menu item in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that is accessed from the Dashboard. When selected, the Nintendo Switch opens its web browser to a page that lists articles about newly added or upcoming content to the game provided by Nintendo, which can then be clicked on and read. The subjects covered by these articles include game updates, downloadable content, Spirit Board events, and Event Tourneys. When a new article has been added, a notice is given upon progressing past the title screen, along with a prompt to either read the article right away or continue to the main menu. Additionally, an orange exclamation point will appear next to the News icon on the Dashboard until the player opens the News from there. If there is currently an active Spirit Board event or Event Tourney, the article may also be accessed directly from their respective menus. Articles can also be read on Smash World.
