Super Smash Bros Ultimate has been given a brand new update on Nintendo Switch.

According to the full patch notes, update 1.2.0 makes big changes to online and offline gameplay for Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

This includes a much-needed fix for matchmaking issues caused by specific rule searches.

Preferred rules will now be prioritised during Super Smash Bros Ultimate matchmaking.

Nintendo has also altered the difficulty of approaching challengers when playing Smash Bros offline.

The only downside about the new update is that the Nintendo Switch update will wipe your old replays.

Nintendo explains more in an early patch notes post within Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

“Version 1.2.0 will be distributed within the next week,” the post reads. “Once you update the software, you won’t be able to watch replays made with previous versions.”

Fortunately, there is a workaround if you want to keep your old replays after the new update goes live.

“If you have any replays you want to keep, go to Vault > Replays > Replay Data > Convert to Video,” Nintendo explains.
