Nintendo will soon be rolling out another update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The company announced via Twitter that it’s releasing a 9.0.2 update for the game “in the near future,” and it appears the patch will make another swathe of adjustments to various characters.
Nintendo hasn’t yet specified when the 9.0.2 update will go live, but according to the tweet, the patch “will include fighter adjustments.” Nintendo also warns to convert your replay data ahead of the update, as it will be incompatible once the 9.0.2 version is live.
This update follows only a couple of weeks after Smash Bros. Ultimate’s 9.0.1 patch. That primarily addressed a handful of issues introduced by the game’s latest DLC character, Steve from Minecraft. The patch also notably changed Steve’s rather suggestive victory pose.
Ver. 9.0.2 of #SmashBrosUltimate will arrive in the near future! This update will include fighter adjustments, meaning replay data from previous versions will be incompatible.

Steve is the second DLC character to arrive as part of Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Fighters Pass Vol. 2, following Min Min from Arms. Four more DLC characters are still on the way, although Nintendo has not yet revealed their identities. The Fighters Pass Vol. 2 runs for $30 USD. Each DLC fighter can also be purchased individually for $6 USD.
In other Smash Bros. news, Nintendo is still offering a freebie for the game. Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can claim the free Vault Shopper Set 2 item bundle from the eShop. The bundle includes 3,000 Gold and five Classic Tickets, the latter of which can be wagered before a run in Classic Mode for a chance to earn additional rewards.
