Piranha Plant has officially entered into the arena with yesterday's update for the Nintendo Switch exclusive Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but for some -- its inclusion has been anything but smooth.

Some players have been reporting that adding the fighter into All-Star Smash can actually corrupt entire save files. Though Nintendo has yet to address this, many are warning others to hold off on adding the plant ot the All-Star feature for now until the Big N addresses the issue.

It looks like Classic Mode is safe -- at least for now -- but the reports of more and more corrupted save files continue to pour in:

Better to wait for a hotfix to be safe. As far as what else the latest update included with v2.0.0:

  • Offline
    • You can now play Spirit Board with up to four players.
      • Select the spirit you want to challenge on the Spirit Board, and then go to Party → Fighter to select the number of people who will play. When playing with multiple people, you will lose the battle if any player is KO'd.
    • The following spirits will now appear in the Shop.
      • Partner Pikachu
