Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC gives us new characters that play months after the game was released – with a total of six new fighters along the way.
First down (or up?) Is pipeline Piranha Plant, which is free for anyone who bought the game before January 31 and appeared in the game next door Smash Bros update 2.0.
Then we are waiting for the Fighters Pass – with five other characters to be added to the game by February 2020.
On this side:
Until all DLCs arrive, many other Smash Bros Ultimate characters are unlocked, and once you have them, our Super Smash Bros Ultimate Tier List will help you decide who to play. We also have some Super Smash Bros Ultimate tips if you want to highlight something.
How to get Piranha Plant code in Super Smash Bros Ultimate
Piranha Plant is available free of charge for anyone who buys Super Smash Bros Ultimate before the end of January 2019.
However, purchase of the game is not enough. Whether you buy them at retail or digitally from the eShop, you need to take additional steps to obtain the Piranha plant code – specifically claiming your golden points from the switch menu screen.
If you purchased Super Smash Bros Ultimate on the eShop your points are claimed automatically – your Piranha Plant code will automatically be sent to the address registered with your Nintendo account.
If you bought Super Smash Bros Ultimate physically you must first insert a cassette, select the game icon on the Switch menu and press the + (plus) button.
Then highlight at the bottom of the "My Nintendo Rewards Program", select "Get points (Game Card only) and select the Nintendo account you want to earn gold points.
Once you have your golden points check the email address your Nintendo account is assigned to. For us, the email header was "Your Piranha Plant Fighter is here!" and looked like this:
Note that the code can take up to 10 business days to come, Nintendo says – and be sure to check your junk folders if they have moved to the network (also in the "Promotion" tab in Gmail).
If the Piranha code has not yet arrived, contact Nintendo directly.
Once you have Piranha plant code, you can stop panic – the code itself will not expire until June 30, so you can relax until you have one by the end of January.
Buy the Piranha plant code, go to the eShop and then click the "Redeem code" button at the bottom and enter the code.
Then, when you update the version of Super Smash Bros Ultimate to version 2.0, Piranha Plant will automatically unlock.
If you are missing Piranha Plant code then you can buy it as a paid DLC from February 2019. The price is currently unknown and will not be part of the Fighters Pass.
