Just after Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s first DLC character, the Piranha Plant, launched last week, various users across social media began to report that their game was crashing and they were losing save data after playing as the potted plant in All-Star mode. Nintendo has finally released a statement on the bug via Newsweek, but it raises some questions…

“We are aware that some users are posting about possible issues with the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate update. After extensive testing, Nintendo has not been able to confirm that there is an issue, although we will continue to investigate and monitor the situation.”

If Nintendo cannot replicate the bug, despite having access to the source files, it does make it seem like a rare issue. While it’s possible those who initially reported the bug were using a pirated copy of the game, which could lead to inconsistencies and issues, it might be worth staying cautious and backing up your saves to the cloud (if you can) until Nintendo finishes its investigation.
