Bayonetta Smash Bros.jpg

One of the niftiest things about Super Smash Bros. for Wii U & 3DS is the developers' ability to send out live updates to further tweak its gameplay mechanics, ensuring balance amongst the roster of fighters. It's definitely something that's needed - just look at the controversy the infamously over-powered Meta Knight caused in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, and Diddy Kong's wrath in Smash 4's early days.

With that said, another patch has recently gone live for Smash 4, once again containing buffs and nerfs to a variety of characters. Those hoping for a major Bayonetta nerf may be left disappointed, for as it stands she's received a mere slap on the wrist. You can check out the full list of changes over at Smashboards, which is still in progress at the time of writing. It's definitely reassuring to know that while development on the game has ceased, Nintendo, Bandai Namco and Masahiro Sakurai's team are still trying to perfect the game's mechanisms to ensure a greater experience for one of its core titles.

What do you make of the changes implemented? Has this positively and/or negatively affected any of your favourites?
