The Smash Ultimate 6.1 patch notes detail the whopping one change that’s arrived in this patch. No, there’s no news towards the next fighter and no, our favorite boy King K. Rool still hasn’t been buffed. Instead, this patch prepares the game for the introduction of Richter and Dark Samus Amiibos. They’ve been a long time coming and finally, on January 17, they’ll arrive. The update was necessary to allow players to create Amiibo fighters for Richter and Dark Samus,  letting you train up a fiendish CPU to battle against or throw out vs your friends.

Here are the patch notes in full:

  • Support for upcoming Dark Samus and Richter Amiibo figures has been implemented.

Yup, that’s it in its entirety. You’ll get a pop up for the new update if you launch the game between January 8 and January 31, letting you know how to check if your copy of Smash Ultimate is up to date.

We’re still waiting for more extensive Smash Ultimate news, particularly regarding the first Fighter Pass’s final DLC character. Despite much speculation over characters online, so far the there’s been no sign of a credible leak regarding the last addition. It seems Nintendo has been working hard to stop the early reveals the likes of Terry had previously. Naturally, we’ll let you know as soon as we hear anything at all on that front.

So there you have it, the Smash Ultimate 6.1.1 patch notes in all their uninteresting glory. Let’s hope the next one brings something heftier, eh? Visit our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate hub for more guides and news for the game.
