The icon for Smash World has appeared on the Nintendo Switch Online app. While the service is still under maintenance, we can at least confirm that it will appear without a software update!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - version 3.0 available, patch notes, communation errors plaguing downloads


The version 3.0 update for Smash Ultimate is available. This update includes access to Joker, the Stage Builder and tons more. That being said, the update is suffering from communation errors at the moment, so this could take a while!


Version 3.0.0

Offline
Stage Builder added to Games & More. You can now draw your own custom stages by hand.
Note: Camera controls are not available when converting a replay that contains a custom stage into a video.

Edit Video feature added to Vault → Replays. You can now create new movies using several videos made from replays.

Note: Only videos from Ver. 3.0.0 or later can be used as source material. There are planned expansions to the Edit Video feature in future updates.

You can now sync your game with Smash World, a service accessible via the Nintendo Switch Online smart device app. Available features include viewing some of the things posted to Shared Content, and creating spirit teams from the spirits you have collected.

Note: The Smash World service is planned to begin after the distribution of Ver. 3.0.0. If you still don't see Smash World in your list of services, please try again later.

It is now easier to be matched with players who have a similar Global Smash Power in Quickplay. Further improvements and adjustments to matchmaking are planned.

Devil May Cry producer on Dante's chances for Smash, franchise on Switch


The following snippet comes from VG 24/7 article, in which Capcom's Hidaki Itsuno is asked about Dante in Super Smash Bros...

''Well, you think about it… I’m pretty sure that they… all the characters in Smash at least have some game on a Nintendo platform, right? Well, that’s the thing. Devil May Cry has never been on a Nintendo platform. So it seems like the first thing to do would be to get Capcom to put Devil May Cry on a Nintendo platform in some way, shape or form – whatever game that might be.''

Itsuno continues by saying ''Tell her!''and kindly gestures to a Capcom UK representative. Who knows? With the right amount of feedback, we could see a Devil May Cry game on a Nintendo system at some point!

RUMOR - Pokemon Trainer and Snake amiibo appear in Japanese booklet, release dates to be announced soon

According to amiibo Alerts, an anonymous user posted a picture of a Japanese booklet that contains pictures of the upcoming Pokemon Trainer and Snake amiibo figures. Simon, Richter, and Dark Samus also have amiibo placeholder slots. Interestingly, Squirtle and Ivysaur also have their own amiibo placeholder slots despite the fact that Super Smash Bros. categorizes these fighters under Pokemon Trainer's character slot. However, the source of this picture and the origin of this booklet is currently unknown. Regardless, it should not be long before official information regarding the next wave of Super Smash Bros. amiibo is announced.

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up!
