Smash Bros. Ultimate - Piranha Plant reconfirmed for Feb. 2019 release

A new in-game update for Smash Bros. Ultimate reconfirms that Piranha Plant will be joining the roster sometime in Feb. 2019. This isn't the first time we've heard the character would be added in February, but it's good to know things are on track. Hopefully we get a specific release date soon.


Woo woo! Can’t wait to play as this great new character.

I hope we can get the next ones sooner rather than later. Joker wasn't even in a playable form when they announced him. Piranha plant isn't nearly as complex as most of the roster and it's very likely to be the most simplistic out of all the DLC fighters. PP is going to have to hold us over for quite some time before we get any other new characters.

More or less I think the time frame will be 3 to 4 months. Which might fit with how they put out Directs during a year.

We also have to consider Joker also comes with a stage and a music selection. Piranha Plant its just by itself.

It'll be added to the game before February 16, 2019.

I'm not an insider, but that's when its' amiibo releases. It'd be a very bad look for Nintendo to release said amiibo and have it not work when it does.
