Nintendo’s already started distributing Piranha Plant DLC codes for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but you could very well miss it if you aren’t careful. The e-mail from Nintendo isn’t very clear, so it’s quite easy to just delete the message like you would any average piece of promotional spam.

To receive the code, you must register your copy of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with Nintendo. If you’ve already done that, carefully comb your inbox for an e-mail that looks like the default auto-message you receive any time you register a game. The subject line reads, “Thanks for your purchase of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game.”

Retrieve your code from the body of that e-mail, and then activate it via the Nintendo Account page in your browser or through the eShop on your Switch. Just like that, you’ll have access to Piranha Plant as a bonus fighter when it debuts in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate this coming February.
