Fighter Move Change
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.
Category Item Name Change
Item Smash Ball Slowed the movement speed and made it easier to hit with attacks.
