Super Smash Bros Ultimate has finally seen its first DLC character. The controversial Piranha Plant has been released with the version 2.0.0 Update that has been recently released for the game. However, it seems like Piranha Plant also came with some problems that can lead to a few problematic situations.

For people in need of a crashing course. Smash Ultimate’s All-Star Mode has you choosing a fighter before taking on all unlocked fighters in chronological order. Of course, Piranha Plant can also be one of the characters that can be selected to tackle the mode. Selecting the character leads to the game resetting the progress of the entire game.

Even more aggravating, this affects the universal progress in Smash Bros Ultimate. As such, all the unlocked characters and progress in Spirits Mode is deleted. This means that the World of Light save data and Spirit Collection will be wiped from the game entirely.

A solution to this problem has been to use Save Data Backups. For those who don’t know how it works, players with a Nintendo Online subscription have access to a Backup from the cloud. To access it, you have to access the Options Menu of the game from the HOME Menu.
