One of the best features in Version 3.0 of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the Stage Builder mode. It allows users to create and then share their own custom stages online. Of course, shortly after the update went live yesterday, a small minority of players began uploading a variety of lewd levels.
Nintendo has now reportedly cleaned up this area of the game – wiping out all of the inappropriate and offensive custom stages. We had a quick look around on the app ourselves and couldn’t see as much, but it’s hard to say if it’s completely gone – and there’s no guarantee it won’t reappear. From here on out, we’re guessing users who do go out of their way to create any naughty stages will get a warning of sorts, or some type of special system will be put in place to help auto-moderate each upload.
This isn’t exactly new territory for Nintendo. The company has previously had similar issues with Super Mario Maker, older iterations of the Smash Bros. stage builder and Miiverse – where memes ran wild.
Did you see any of these inappropriate levels a small portion of the community were uploading yesterday? Have you seen any since Nintendo cleaned it up? Tell us down in the comments.
