CAUTION FOR SMASH Players! Avoid playing Piranha Plant in All-Stars Mode

Piranha Plant has just been released for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate but there’s a glitch with it. Reported on GameFAQs and Twitter users, if you use Piranha Plant in All-Star Mode, your Save File will corrupt and you’ll have to reinstall and unlock everything again. This has been reported only for digital copies but I advise being cautious until Nintendo has released an official patch or update. I will revise the article once it has been. In the meantime, why not watch the new character be played by pro-players?

If you pre-ordered the game, the last day to download Piranha Plant for free is tomorrow, January 31st.
