Smash Ultimate just got a huge patch, led by newcomer Byleth

Everyone's favvvvvvvorite fighter, right?!

It's time for another huge Super Smash Bros. Ultimate patch, and 7.0 is finally upon us following a Sakurai Direct tease recently.

You can find Fire Emblem: Three Houses spirits haunting the game now, as well as a bunch of Tetris blocks. Newcomer Byleth, the fifth and final entry in the first Fighter's Pass (there's a second one now!) is also available, as are the Cuphead, Assassin's Creed, Rabbids and Mega Man Mii outfits. Note that 7.0 isn't nearly as monumental as some other DLC patches: there's no big new mode to test out this time.

You can find all of the non-balance patch notes below. The fighter changelog is a doozy, so you can check out the full list of alterations here. The big changes include buffs for Samus and Dark Samus, a bit of give and take for Sheik, huge buffs for Zelda, buffs for Dr. Mario, Palutena, Ryu, Ken, Cloud, Toon Link and Young Link. Joker (who has been dominating in many circles) got a few minor nerfs.

Hopefully some of these buffs are enough to change up the meta a bit.
