Here are Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Version 6.0.0 update patch notes

Posted by Dakota 'DarkHorse' Hills • November 6, 2019 at 6:36 a.m. PST

As is pretty much always the case when a new character drops for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, a brand new updated version of the game is also launched bumping that in-game number even higher to signify big changes.

The Version 6.0.0 update is now available to download for Smash Ultimate alongside the new fighter Terry Bogard, and Nintendo has already released the full list of patch notes including some nice buffs for characters in need.

None of the top tier characters like Joker or Palutena have been touched in this latest patch, but there are improvements for big bodied fighters like Donkey Kong, Incineroar and King K. Rool.

Meanwhile, Kirby, Robin and Jigglypuff also had their attack speed and power leveled up a notch though it'll take some time to see if those will be enough to make them better in the current meta.

Hero only received a change to fix interactions with his Kafrizz spell though others like Little Mac and Bowser Jr. will remain the same for at least the time being.
