Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is one of the most popular games on the Nintendo Switch, pitting characters from various different games and IPs owned by the Japanese company against each other in epic battles.

Now, Nintendo have made some adjustments to a number of fighters with the release of this patch in an attempt to rebalance the game.

What changed in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate v3.1.0 patch?

While not much info was released prior to the update's release, Ultimate fans were anxiously awaiting the various balance changes the update was going to bring. 

Those fans weren't disappointed when just about every character in the game received an adjustment of some sort, whether it be nerfs for some characters or buffs for others.

What new features were added with the v3.10 update? 

In addition to the balance changes, the latest Smash Ultimate update brought VR support for the Nintendo Labo accessory kit. 

The mode is only for single player modes, so anyone wanting to play online in VR will surely be disappointed. 

That wasn't the only new addition, however, as Amiibo support was added to give a new way to train your favorite Amiibos. 

The full patch notes for the v3.1.0 update can be found below!
