Two days ago Nintendo announced that Super Smash Bros. is getting a new balance patch on 3DS and Wii U. No details were given at the time, but we suspected that Bayonetta would see some of her moves nerfed, as she is considered overpowered by many and some competitive scenes are considering banning her. As it turns out, she’s apparently the only character that’s been altered. A handful of data miners have gone through the patch, and, as expected, many of Bayonetta’s moves have been weakened substantially. You can check out a breakdown of the changes below.

  • Dtilt
    • Hitbox sizes 3.5 -> 2.8
  • Fair
    • Hit 1 damage 3.8 -> 3
    • Hit 2 damage 2.8 -> 2.2
    • Hit 3 KBG 82 -> 68, x1.2 frame speed multiplier added to frame 29 (presumably means 1f later autocancel/2f later FAF, but these don’t always translate to ingame as expected)
  • Dair landing

  • Afterburner Kick
    • All hitboxes: SDI multiplier 1 -> 2
