Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version is coming soon, so Kazuya’s release is likely to be imminent

There’s big news for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players. Earlier today Nintendo confirmed that the next major update to the game, which will bring the game to version 12.0.0, will arrive “in the near future”.

Here’s the message it shared:

The Japanese company reminds Smash players to convert any game replays they have saved to video before the update arrives, as replay data from previous versions may be incompatible.

It’s worth noting that fighters are usually released shortly after these demo videos, so coupled with today’s reveal, it looks like we’ll be able to play Kazuya as early as next week.
