Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: all you need to know about DLC, Fighter Pass

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS received quite a lot of additional content as paid DLC: new fighters, stages, Mii Fighter costumes, and more. Of course, it was all but guaranteed that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate would get some, and that’s precisely what was announced during the Nintendo Direct presentation on November 1st 2018.

On this page, you will find all there is to know about the DLC for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: the DLC sets, the Fighter Pass, the early purchase bonus, and more!

Important note: make sure you download the latest Software update for the game, as it’s required to access the latest DLC: click here for more details!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – What’s in a DLC set? What’s the Fighter Pass?

The DLC for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be released as sets including the following:

  • 1 new fighter
  • 1 new stage
  • several music tracks

Each set costs $5.99 / 5.99€ / CA$7.55 / £5.39. If you want, you can buy the Fighter Pass, which includes all 5 sets of DLC for $24.99 / 24.99€ / CA$31.49 / £22.49 (allowing you to save a few bucks). The Fighter Pass also includes a little bonus: an in-game outfit based on Rex from Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

If you decide to buy the game on the Nintendo eShop, you can buy a bundle including both the main game and the Fighter Pass. It does not offer any additional discount or bonus, but it’s one pretty convenient purchase option!

There’s also additional characters to be released once all the characters from the Fighter Pass are available. Finally, there’s some additional Mii costumes available, with more details to be found below.
