Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Update Addresses Approaching Challenger Difficulty, Stability Issues, And More

Nintendo has released a brand new update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that addresses some of the game’s post-launch jitters. Announced over on the Big N’s Nintendo Switch support page, the update is now available for download, and addresses some issues with approaching challengers, implements various gameplay fixes, and introduces a few character-specific adjustments.

Arguably the biggest issue Nintendo is addressing within this patch is the fluctuating difficulty of approaching challengers, AKA the fighters you can add to your roster after you’ve beaten them. Many players have complained that some of the battles are too difficult, while others have been insanely easy. While Nintendo doesn’t typically get into too much detail with their patch notes, said notes can be found below, which includes the fix for the above problem:

Super Smash Bros. Update 1.2.0

*You can confirm your current version by checking the upper-right corner of the title screen.

  • Offline Gameplay
    • Adjusted difficulty of approaching challengers.
  • Online Gameplay
    • When matchmaking in Quickplay, the Format setting of your Preferred Rules will be prioritized more. This may cause matchmaking to take more time. Also, there is no guarantee that matchmaking will be done exactly as shown in the set Preferred Rules.
    • Increased the stability of the synchronous connection within Battle Arenas.

    NOTE: Online features require a Nintendo Switch Online membership.

  • Misc.
    • Game balance adjustments.
    • Various gameplay fixes.
    • The following fighters had specific adjustments and changes:
      • Donkey Kong, Link, Kirby, Luigi, Ice Climbers, Young Link, Olimar, Toon Link, Villager, Greninja, PAC-MAN, Duck Hunt, and Isabelle

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
