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.
PSA: do NOT use Joker’s final smash in single-player modes, because of his unique victory screen transition thing the game just softlocks, I can’t believe they didn’t test this pic.twitter.com/tl5GsQvNVE

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.
So, alot of people reported softlocks when using Joker's Final Smash in Classic Mode, I decided to test it out and YES this is the case, as you can see, here is video evidence of the softlock #SmashBrosUltimate pic.twitter.com/J81yG4D39P
