June 30 is your last chance to redeem Piranha Plant in Smash Ultimate

Piranha Plant June 30 in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Sunday, June 30 is the last day to download Piranha Plant as a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Players initially had to purchase and register their game by Jan. 31 to receive a download code for Piranha Plant. However, any unredeemed download codes will expire at 11:59 PT on June 30.

Obtaining the character is simple for those who registered their games and received their download codes via email back in January. Simply go to the Nintendo eShop Menu, click “Redeem Download Code,” and touch the box that says, “Enter a download code.” From there, a player can enter their code and begin downloading Piranha Plant.

Piranha Plant: Smash Ultimate‘s first DLC fighter

Piranha Plant was the first DLC character to be confirmed for Smash Ultimate. He was announced alongside Ken and Incineroar in the final Ultimate Direct before release. Piranha Plant was a free download for anyone who purchased Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before February 2019.

Players who purchased Super Smash Bros. Ultimate after Jan. 31 had the chance to purchase the Plant as paid DLC. However, he was separate from the paid Fighters Pass of downloadable characters. So far, Joker is the only Fighters Pass character who has been released. Two more of these characters were announced at E3: the Hero from Dragon Quest and Banjo & Kazooie.

Did you get the download code for Piranha back in January but forget to redeem it? Be sure to claim this wacky character before the code expires on Sunday and time runs out!
