As Nintendo’s Direct presentation came to a close, game director Masahiro Sakurai announced a new–and pretty much final–mode for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The Home Run Contest will make its return to the party-fighter in the newest software update, which is available today.
Sakurai said Home Run Contest has been “powered up in various ways compared to previous” iterations of the mode, but he didn’t clarify what these improvements are. This time, though, Home Run Contest can be played with two players, making the home run even more impressive.
In other Super Smash Bros. Ultimate news, the game’s third DLC character, Banjo-Kazooie, will be available later today. The fourth DLC character of the game’s Fighter Pass, Fatal Fury‘s Terry Bogard, is slated to join the roster this November. Though the Fighter Pass now has only one unannounced character left, Sakurai confirmed that more DLC characters outside of the Fighter Pass are on the way. Additionally, you can grab a new Spirit Board freebie for the party-fighter if you have an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription, and it comes with a smorgasbord of helpful items for the game’s Spirit Board mode.
