Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Version 13.0.1 Patch Notes: The Final Fighter Adjustment

After almost exactly three years, the final fighter-based update has arrived.

Comments

After announcing the patch earlier this week, Nintendo has released Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's 13.0.1 update, the patch including the final adjustments to the playable roster.

The company has confirmed this will be the last update to Smash Ultimate that will impact the playable roster, though the Tweet announcing the patch's launch did say "other updates to fix potential bugs may be released in the future."

In all, 24 of the 86 fighters on the roster have had some sort of change made, including the newest addition: Sora from Kingdom Hearts. Ryu from Street Fighter is one of the biggest beneficiaries from this final update, which adds power to his neutral special Hadoken while decreasing his vulnerability during his side special Tatsumaki Senpuukyaku. Piranha Plant, Meta Knight, and Mega Man also received a few positive adjustments.

Only one character seems to have been negatively affected by the patch: the tandem character Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Pyra's side special Blazing End has had its vulnerability frames increased, while Mythra's side Smash attack will not launch opponents as far as it did previously.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's downloadable content packs ended on October 18, when the aforementioned Sora was officially released as part of the previous 13.0 patch. Sora's addition marked the end of a three-year journey for the game, which began in March 2018 during a Nintendo Direct.
