Smash Piranha Plant, where are you?

, | News

Are you missing your Piranha Plant code for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch? Maybe you have the code, but the wily plant hasn’t shown up in your game? You’re not alone. Trust Nintendo to make getting a DLC character needlessly confusing.

It’s all in the support page. If you purchased a digital copy of Smash before today, you should’ve already gotten a code emailed to you. If you purchased a physical copy, you needed to have registered the game with MyNintendo to get a code. Those messages are going out in batches. But some folks haven’t gotten a code, or they’ve entered their code, and the DLC still hasn’t shown up. It’s all a bit of a mess in the support forums as Smash fans clamour for their free character.

The next scheduled DLC character for Smash Ultimate is Joker from Persona 5, but he costs $5, and hopefully there will be less confusion around his release.
