A ResetEra user by the name of MondoMega has posted information from a datamine which points to new modes (and other content) coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It confirms one Smash mode, one Games and More mode and 3 online modes. Here is the text from the datamine:

The data shows gaps in Smash, Games and More, Online so what are they? We can only guess at this point but if the Smash mode could be Coin Battle, a classic mode which didn’t make the launch of the game. The Games and More mode has to be Home Run Contest. A mode where the player has to hit the sandbag as far as possible usually with the baseball bat, another mode that missed the launch of the game and one that has been frequently requested by fans. The Online modes could be anything, Squad Strike Online, Smashdown Online and Custom Tourneys are potential candidates. Since this was the result of a datamine that happened a few months ago, some of the gaps have been filled with VR and Stage Builder etc.

I personally want a proper ranked mode for one of the online modes, Quick play/Elite Smash just doesn’t cut it for me. Something with a ranked system, similar to Dragon Ball FighterZ with its ranks, badges etc. These modes will probably get added to the game when Banjo becomes available, which is scheduled to release in Fall 2019.
