New Features

Is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 13.0.1 The Final Balance Patch?

The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 13.0.1 patch is the last patch to include fighter adjustments, so unless some of these changes brought massive glitches, we will not be seeing any further changes to characters. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has reached the final stages of its life, so it’s not surprising that the developer is scaling back the amazing support it has provided over the years.
