At the very end of the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate broadcast, Masahiro Sakurai briefly touched on the game’s 8.1 update and mentioned how the team made improvements to the online multiplayer.

In addition to this, he also advised players to use a wired connection when playing Smash online – rather than a wireless one:

“We’ve also adjusted the connection environment, with the goal of improving latency and matchmaking. However, the best way to improve it is to ensure the player’s connection environment is optimal.

“If possible, we’d like to advise players to use a wired connection rather than a wireless one when playing online.”

If you would like to follow Sakurai’s advice, you’ll need a wired LAN adapter. For extra details about improving your Switch’s internet connection, check out our guide.
