Super Smash Bros. community rounds up 1.1.3 patch notes

Today's been an exciting day for Super Smash Bros. for both Wii U and 3DS. While there are big changes coming down the line, today saw the addition of Cloud to the Smash Bros. roster and along with him came the newest patch for the game.

But of course, Nintendo is the model of consistency and, once again, there are no patch notes issued to spell out the character balance tweaks. So once again, we turn to the gaming heroes at the Smashboards forums to lend a helping hand.
