The most recent update showcases the game's spectator mode.

This is also the screen where you will see assorted states related to the game.

Sakurai warns that diving into spectator mode can be dangerous if you don't want any of the new fighters spoiled for you, but followed up saying it might not be a bad idea to log in at least once so the network will recognize you and make upcoming patches, etc. available to you faster.
