Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC gives us new characters to play with months after the game has released – with a total of six new fighters on the way.
First down (or up?) The pipe is Piranha Plant, who is free for everyone who bought the game before January 31st, appearing in the game alongside Smash Bros update 2.0.
After that, we have the Fighters Pass to look forward to – featuring another five characters that will be added to the game by February 2020.

Until all the DLC arrives there are plenty of other Smash Bros Ultimate characters to unlock, and once you have them, our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Tier List can help you decide who to play as. We also have some Super Smash Bros Ultimate tips if you want to brush up on the essentials.
How to get the Piranha Plant code in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Piranha Plant is available free for anyone who buys Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before the end of January 2019.
However, purchasing the game is not enough. Whether you buy it from retail or digitally from eShop, you need to perform extra steps to get the Piranha Plant code – specifically claiming your Gold Points from the Switch's menu screen.
If you bought Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the eShop then your points are automatically claimed – your Piranha Plant code will be automatically emailed to the address registered with your Nintendo Account.
If you bought a Super Smash Bros Ultimate physically you need to first insert the cartridge, select the game icon on the Switch's game menu, press the + (plus) button.
