Gotta love the current age of video games we’re living in. No longer do developers actually have to ship out complete products, as they can later amend them with patches on day one. As much as we love Nintendo, and as great as they’ve been about avoiding the abuse of such practices over the years, that doesn’t mean they are immune.
In fact, it turns out their new game set to hit on December 7, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, will feature a day one patch, as reported by Famitsu. From the sound of it, digital downloaders need not worry about this, but what will the patch include? Masahiro Sakurai, the director of the game stated:
“We will distribute our first update on launch day. Players who purchased the digital version don’t need to worry, but players who purchased the physical version should apply this day-one patch before you play. This will also prevent your replays from going off-track. By the way, if you save your replays as videos, you can keep them forever, but note that they take up a lot of space!”
Obviously, he was a bit vague, but maybe there was a bug that had to do with the audio and video syncing of replays? Regardless, this a confirmation that you can save your replays and keep them for bragging rights for years to come.
Will you be joining the fray come December 7? Let us know down below!
