Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch has officially been out for a week now, and we are already at our second update! Nintendo is working hard to make sure we all have a great experience playing smash with our family, friends, and loved ones. One of the most significant changes in this patch is the difficulty adjustment to the approaching challengers. Unlocking new characters have been rather difficult for a lot of players, and Nintendo decided to make things a little easier. Check out the patch notes down below thanks to the in-game notifications on the switch:
- Adjusted difficulty of approaching challengers.
- In Quickplay, the Format set in Preferred Rules is more likely to be factored into matching. This may result in longer wait times when being matched. Note that this does not guarantee that your Preferred Rules will be used when being matched.
- Stability of real-time communication has been improved in Battle Arenas.
- Game balance adjustments, stability fixes, and other minor adjustments have been made.
- Individual adjustments and fixes have been made to the fighters listed below:
- Donkey Kong, Link, Kirby, Luigi, Ice Climbers, Young Link, Olimar, Toon Link, Villager, Greninja, PAC-MAN, Duck Hunt Duo, Isabelle
Notice on compatibility issues:
- The latest software version is required to enter Online mode.
