Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s massive 8.0.0 patch is here and so is Min Min

Time for fighter adjustments

In true Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fashion: shortly after the new fighter reveal, they’re available in-game.

Although Min Min was just confirmed last week, she’s now fully available in Ultimate, alongside of the new patch 8.0.0 update that alters a bunch of fighters and adds new Miis and spirits into the mix. In addition to the new Min Min character, stage and music, countless fighters have been altered in subtle or not so subtle ways.

Isabelle for example got buffs across the board with enhanced attack speed and launch distances for several moves, as well as strict buffs for Piranha Plant, Corrin, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager, Pit/Dark Pit, Mewtwo, Marth, Falco, Captain Falcon, Kirby and Incineroar. 

You can find the full patch notes below: it’s a surprising overall power increase for a lot of fighters!
