Version 13.0.1 will be the final update to include adjustments to existing fighters, a process that began with the Version 1.2.0 update on December 13, 2018. The first characters to receive a patch were Donkey Kong, Link, Kirby, Luigi, Ice Climbers, Young Link, Olimar, Toon Link, Villager, Greninja, Pac-Man, Duck Hunt, and Isabelle.
The most recent update, Version 13.0.0, was the patch that included Kingdom Hearts’ Sora, the final addition to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster. In our retrospective piece on Smash Bros. Ultimate, Kingdom Hearts director Tetsuya Nomura commented on Sora’s inclusion, saying, “The fan reaction exceeded even what I’d imagined, so I was extremely happy.”
