Own a copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but aren’t sure how to unlock your Piranha Plant DLC character? Don’t worry. There’s still time! The character, who I am beyond interested to see, is sure to be a popular one.
Remember, this is a free DLC character. The Fighters Pack bundle is set to begin with the release of Joker from Persona is something extra that you pay for. Piranha Plant is 100% free.
Here’s what Nintendo says you have to do:
If you buy the digital version of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before 11:59 p.m. PT on Jan. 31, 2019…then it will automatically be registered. You’ll receive a download code** for the Piranha Plant DLC at the email associated with your Nintendo Account within 10 days after registering. Enter the code on Nintendo eShop and you’re set.
If you buy the retail version, then you’ll need to register your game card with My Nintendo before 11:59 p.m. PT on Jan. 31, 2019. Here are the steps:
1) First, create a My Nintendo account at my.nintendo.com if you haven’t already done so.
2) Insert the game card into your Nintendo Switch console and highlight the game icon on the HOME menu.
3) Press the + or – button to access the software Options menu.
4) Highlight “My Nintendo Rewards Program,” then select “Earn Points (Game Card version only)” to finish the process.
Once registered, you’ll receive the download code** via the email associated with your Nintendo Account within 10 days. Enter that code on Nintendo eShop.
All in all, I expect this character to be 100% infuriating to play against. Don’t miss out on this awesome offer.
