Nintendo recently released patch 3.1.0 for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As it is the most impactful set of balance updates released for the game so far, we have reset our tiers section as a result.

If you're looking for a visualization of everything that was changed in version 3.1.0, then the Beefy Smash Doods have got you covered. They've released a ten minute video that gives an overview of every adjustment.

For most of the alterations, the Beefy Smash Doods provide a side-by-side comparison. Essentially, version 3.1.0 is shown in parallel with version 3.0.1 of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Evidently, Pichu's hurtboxes were made big enough so that the back hit of Ridley's up smash will connect on a standing Pichu. Olimar was given a similar treatment as demonstrated in the video.

One of the most hype inducing moves in the Super Smash Bros. series, Captain Falcon's "Knee of Justice" forward aerial, has seen a improvement for its hitbox. It should be a little easier to connect this move in combos now.

We also get an idea about the speed differences in Ryu's fireballs and how much more damage Ken's "crazy kicks" deal in the 3.1.0 update.
