If you’ve got a copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and still have a code for the DLC fighter Piranha Plant, you should probably redeem it right now. After 30th June, Piranha Plant download codes – sent out to players who registered their copy of Ultimate before the end of January – can no longer be redeemed. So, if you haven’t already used this code, now is your last chance.
Fortunately, it’s not the end of the world if you’re reading this at a later date and forgot to input your free code before it expired. It just means you’ll now have to buy the DLC fighter from the Switch eShop for £4.49 / $4.99. To play as Piranha Plant you’ll need to be running Version 2.0 or higher (previously released on 29th January).
The next paid DLC fighters following on from Joker include The Hero from Dragon Quest and Rare’s Banjo-Kazooie. If you would like to see these characters in your game eventually, you can purchase the Fighter Pass (giving you access to all of the DLC fighters) or pay a standalone price for each one.
