Nintendo surprised everyone expecting a release date for Banjo and Kazooie to hit Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. That's because that release date is today! But with a new character, there must also come a new update. With that said, the Version 5.0 update is now available.
Here are the Version 5.0 fighter adjustments, taken straight from Nintendo.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Version 5.0.0 - Fighter Adjustments
|Common for All Fighters||Basic Movements||Previously, if you were in the air and held the shield button and input left, right, or down, and then continued to hold the shield button until you landed, you would dodge in the direction input upon landing.
Now, you will only dodge after landing if you input the direction after landing.
|Common for All Fighters||Basic Movements||Adjusted the time until you can move again after grab parrying to be consistent.|
|Yoshi||Basic Movements||Made it so that you can grab using input buffering after dodging, like other fighters.|
|Peach||Up Special||Made it easier to hit multiple times.|
|Daisy||Up Special||Made it easier to hit multiple times.|
|Ice Climbers||Basic Movements||Restored Nana's ability to steal edge grabs.|
|Villager||Up Smash Attack||Buried opponents will now be shot up and hit multiple times.|
|Rosalina & Luma||Other||Hero’s Snooze will no longer prevent Luma from being controlled, similar to other instances of sleep.|
|Joker||Other||Adjusted the time it takes to move again to match other fighters when bouncing while lying facedown.|
|Hero||Neutral Special||After Kafrizz hits a fighter or the stage and explodes, it can now be guarded against with a shield, reflected, or absorbed.|
|Hero||Down Special||Increased the amount of time opponents will be in the damage animation when hit at the beginning of Magic Burst.|
|Hero||Other||Adjusted the time it takes to move again to match other fighters when bouncing while lying facedown.|
|Item||Smash Ball||Slowed the movement speed and made it easier to hit with attacks.|
Given how little time there was between this update and the previous 4.0 update, there isn't too much to write home about here. However, there are a few noteworthy adjustments for Hero and Joker, so give these a look.
And give Banjo and Kazooie a try while you're at it. They're out with today's update too!
