How to get Piranha factory code in Super Smash Bros Ultimate
The Piranha plant is available for free to anyone who buys Super Smash Bros Ultimate until the end of January 2019.
However, buying a game is not enough. Regardless of whether you buy it in retail or digital form from an online store, you need to take additional steps to get the Piranha Plant code — in particular, to get your Gold Points on the switch menu screen.
If you bought Super Smash Bros Ultimate in an online store then your points are awarded automatically – your Piranha Plant code will be automatically sent to the address registered in your Nintendo account.
If you bought Super Smash Bros Ultimate physically you first need to insert the cartridge, select the game icon in the game menu of the switch and press the + (plus) button.
Then select “My Nintendo Rewards Program” at the bottom, select “Earn Points” (game card version only) and select the Nintendo account you want to get Gold Points for.
After you took away your gold glasses check the email address assigned to your Nintendo account. For us, the email header was: “Your Piranha Plant Fighter code is here!” And it looked like this:
Please note that it may take up to 10 business days to get the code, Nintendo says, and be sure to check the junk e-mail folders in case they slipped through the network (in Gmail also check the Promotions tab).
If the Piranha factory code has not yet entered, contact Nintendo directly.
Having received the Piranha Plant code, you can stop panicking – the code itself expires before June 30, so as long as you have the code by the end of January, you can rest easy.
To redeem the Piranha factory codeGo to the online store, then "Redeem Code" at the bottom and enter the code.
Then, when you upgrade to Super Smash Bros Ultimate to version 2.0, Piranha Plant is automatically unlocked.
If you miss the code of the factory Piranha then you can purchase it as a paid DLC from February 2019. The price is currently unknown, and it will not be part of the Fighters Pass.
