Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s next DLC fighter, Sephiroth, officially releases tomorrow (although you can unlock the One-Winged Angel early right now), but that’s not all that’s arriving this week. Nintendo has announced it is also rolling out another update for the Switch fighting game on December 22.
The company hasn’t shared any details about the version 10.1 update, other than it will “include fighter adjustments.” Ahead of the update, you’ll need to convert any replay data by going into the game’s Vault menu, as it will become incompatible once you’ve installed the patch.
Ver. 10.1 of Super #SmashBrosUltimate will arrive tomorrow! This update will include fighter adjustments, meaning replay data from previous versions will be incompatible. Convert your replays by going to Vault -> Replays -> Replay Data -> Convert to Video, before updating. pic.twitter.com/shaBh9Aspx

As previously mentioned, Sephiroth also officially unlocks tomorrow, December 22. In the meantime, however, you can unlock the DLC fighter early through the limited-time Sephiroth Challenge event. If you defeat Sephiroth in a stamina battle (and have already purchased his challenger pack or the Fighters Pass Vol. 2), he’ll be added to your roster ahead of his official release, as will is accompanying stage: Northern Cave.
