Nintendo unveiled a lot of news for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and its upcoming 3.0 update. But not all of those announcements were for the game itself. Nintendo is putting a lot into its Nintendo Switch Online app, adding in a new feature called Smash World.
Smash World will support one of Version 3.0’s key additions, the shareable Stage Builder. Players will be able to browse recommended stages through the Nintendo Switch Online app, without starting up Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. That’ll come in handy for anyone who doesn’t have their cartridge loaded up or for anyone who’s away from home for a spell. Anyone who strikes gold and finds a good stage to play on can download the stage via the Queue to Download button, which will immediately queue up the stage to download on the app user’s Nintendo Switch.
Players can also turn to Smash World to watch some of their favorite videos on the subject of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. They can watch highlights or other content with videos provided by YouTube Gaming. Anyone looking for footage on specific characters can search for videos separated by fighter.
In-game notifications and Spirit teams can also be queued up using Smash World. While Smash World’s contents are technically free, remember that sharing stages and the like will require a paid Nintendo Switch Online membership.
