Nintendo Switch‘s Super Smash Bros Ultimate 3.0 update is packed with a lot of things. The 3.0 patch includes a free stage-builder and a video editor for all players.
Furthermore, the Ultimate patch brings on the first DLC character, Joker from Persona 5. He’s available as a $6 standalone purchase, or as part of the $25 pack of five new characters Fighter’s Pack.
Joker also comes with new Mementos settings. These stages feature music from the Persona series.
Super Smash Bros Ulimate has sold over 12 million copies worldwide, and it’s already the best selling Nintendo Switch game in history.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate stage builder
The Super Smash Bros stage lets players create custom stages to play on. In the game’s handled mode, you can draw on the table screen with your finger to create the new maps. The tools are useful enough to make plenty of things, and the tools support multiple layers to edit in more profound ways.
When you edit a new stage, you’ll see it in a new “Custom” tab on the Stage Select screen. Even more, you can download other people’s custom stages, although you need Nintendo Switch Online to do it.
You can see how it all works and what tools you have at your disposal on the video above. You’ll learn you can queue up stage downloads directly from the Smash World part within the Nintendo Switch Online ap. You may also see recommended stages or watch videos from Smash World.
Popular uses of the game’s stage builder
A lot of Smash players have been interested in recreating their favorite maps from previous entries of the franchise. The YouTube channel GameXplain made a model of Peach’s Castle and one of Hyrule Castle:
Another popular custom map is “Mount Yoshi,” a medium-sized staged inspired by Super Nintendo’s “Yoshi’s Island.”
Reddit user Tiamat22 has a big collection of “retro stages” you can check here. It includes alternate versions of the Hyrule and Peach’s Castle map and versions of almost all of the stages from the Nintendo 64’s Super Smash.
