The idea of getting updates for games is not at all surprising, but what is unexpected with regards to the recent update for Super Smash Bros. 4 is that the previous February patch was deemed to be the last update for the title.
Latest Update for Super Smash Bros. 4 Surprises Fans
There were earlier reports that there were no longer any updates for Super Smash Bros. 4 because version 5 is reportedly to be on its way. However, Nintendo announced in a recent official statement that there is a new update for the game and it will be labeled as version 1.1.5 and is already available for download.
For the new update for Super Smash Bros. 4, it contains several improvements such as balancing game elements, fixes to bugs, and other areas that contribute for a better gaming experience. At the time of writing, there is no ample information available with respect to specific changes regarding the update. However, it is known that the patch requires 160 MB of free storage space. Therefore, it could mean that the improvements within seem to be quite extensive.
A Reddit user but the name of ArrNega claims to have more knowledge regarding the update, but do take note these are unofficial insights about the patch. Within a post made within the online forum, the user cited that potential changes towards the game’s balance (which has adjustments to certain skills and damage output of certain characters). Some of the characters that have changes include MK and Ganondorf. There is also a claim wherein Sheik and Cloud have been nerfed.
Once said update has been announced, fans of the title have already scrambled towards the Nintendo eShop to download it. To their surprise (even more surprises, eh?), there was another patch that was coming their way from Masahiro Sakurai himself. Said person is the creator of the franchise who personally reveals the latest change. Therefore, it hints that there are more possible updates and patches that will arrive for the game in the future.
It is still unclear as of the moment why the decision to release another update for Super Smash Bros. 4 even after reports were made that the February patch was going to be the last. There are gamers that would probably look into trying to solve the mystery while playing the latest iteration of the franchise. There is already a detailed FAQ and download information found at the website of Nintendo Japan for those who are interested in trying out the game’s new version.
