Piranha Plant is now available on the Nintendo eShop for $4.99, which is what we expect all DLC fighters to cost when purchased separately. Keep in mind that if you ‘ve already received a download code for Piranha Plant but haven’t redeemed it yet , you can still do so.
Please note: you can still receive the Piranha Plant even if you do not have an active Nintendo Switch Online membership.
Note that Piranha Plant is not included in the Fighters Pass . Piranha Plant DLC includes the fighter only (stage/music not included).
Piranha Plant , the game’s first post-launch fighter, is now playable as part of version 2.0. Piranha Plant is currently free for players who purchased Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. That’s a limited-time offer, however, and Nintendo will only offer the character for free to players who purchase Ultimate through Jan.
Price: Free to anyone who registered their copy of Smash Ultimate on their My Nintendo account before the January 31, 2019 deadline.
The Joker DLC costs $6 on its own but players can also purchase the $25 Fighters Pass to unlock Joker and four more incoming fighters.

Piranha Plant was available to everyone who bought Super Smash Bros Ultimate before the end of January 2019. Originally, players who bought the physical version of Super Smash Bros Ultimate had to register their game with a My Nintendo account.
In English language versions, the Piranha Plant is male as his various bios refer to Petey Piranha as a “he” as well as in-game by a Pianta in Super Mario Sunshine, his first appearance . In French, however, Petey is female and her name is “Flora Piranha”, derived from “Flora”, a female name.
Piranha Plant also has a decent Up Smash, good Neutral Air attack, and a solid Back Air that can be used as a kill move. The Ptoooie and Long-Stem Strike attacks also make it seem like this character can prevent opponents from getting the drop on her. Piranha Plant seems to have very poor grab though.
You can technically unlock Sonic, Bayonetta, Little Mac, Ike, Luigi, Roy, Dr. Mario, and Olimar just by beating Classic Mode with Mario 8 times in a row. Any character in Mario’s group is able to unlock any other fighter in that same group.
In the buildup to Smash 4’s release, Sakurai went so far as to openly taunt fans. “Just because you try hard doesn’t mean you’ll make it into the battle,” he said of the character in a Nintendo Direct. The refusal to include Waluigi reminds fans that, at the end of the day, Sakurai is in control.
2 for a suggested retail price of $29.99 , players will get access to Min Min, along with five more yet-to-be-announced Challenger Packs as they release. Each pack includes one new fighter, one stage and multiple music tracks.
To do this just go to the Switch main menu. Hover over the SSBU icon and press Plus. This will bring up a sub-menu where you can choose to look for a new update. Once you have it, Joker will be added to your character roster without any input on your part.
