Curse you, Petey the potted Piranha Plant!

Smash Ultimate version 2 is now live, bringing a host of adjustments and a new challenger.

The update, available now from the eShop, brings Piranha Plant to the game for those who have entered the code received when registering the game or purchasing it digitally. A multiplayer option has also been added in Spirit Mode, allowing up to four players to tackle the board. In multiplayer Spirit Board, the challenge will be lost if any player is KOed.

Previously event-only Spirits, such as the Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee partners, can now be purchased in the shop. Character adjustments are also active.

PSA:  There are reports of data corruption if Piranha Plant is used in some game modes.

So apparently we needed to get another email from Nintendo with yet another code? If so, I still haven't gotten my code for Piranha Plant (I got an email with "a" code after I registered, though), and I registered my physical copy day 1.

Haven't powered my Switch on in a while, but I guess that should unlock him?

It should just be the one code.
