Super Smash Bros. community rounds up 1.1.4 patch notes

Following the changes to Super Smash Bros. for Wii and 3DS certainly hasn't been easy. While Nintendo has finally gotten into the idea of balance patches and character updates, it's made determining those changes difficult without any sort of official patch notes. That's where the Smash Bros. community stepped in to figure those changes out among themselves.

The arrival of Bayonetta and Corrin earlier tonight also ushered in Smash Bros.' final balance patch and this might sound shocking, but Nintendo has not issued any patch notes for this update, either. Fortunately, the dedicated folks over at Smashboards are compiling patch notes one last time.

The following are the latest changes to come to each character, courtesy of Smashboards:
