Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's New Fighter Is Live, Patch Notes Released

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's 11.0.0 update is now live on Nintendo Switch, adding the game's latest DLC fighter, Pyra/Mythra. The two Xenoblade Chronicles 2 characters represent the fourth addition to the Fighter's Pass Vol. 2 DLC, leaving just two spots left in the game for additional fighters. Now that the update is live, Nintendo has released official patch notes for version 11.0.0, and it seems that there are a number of changes that players can expect in addition to the new fighter and stage. The game's new Mii Fighter options are now available and amiibo support has been added for Super Nintendo World's Power-Up Bands.
