Some players using the newly-released DLC character Joker in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Classic Mode are experiencing a glitch that softlocks the game — causing it to only work again once the software is restarted.

The bug occurs when a player finishes a match with Joker’s Final Smash: All-Out Attack.

 

 

Joker receives a few unique perks in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in regards to his victory screen: In normal circumstances, when Joker wins a multiplayer match, he receives a victory screen modeled after his home game, Persona 5.

If a player wins a match by using Joker’s Final Smash on foes with over 100% damage (KOing them), the match immediately ends and the victory screen is instead overlaid on the final frame of the All-Out Attack.

However, due to Classic Mode not having a victory screen like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s multiplayer modes, the game seemingly gets confused and softlocks.

 

 

Nintendo has not provided an official statement or explanation regarding this bug, but stay connected to Nintendo Wire for more information about a possible fix as it becomes available.
