Nintendo has just released update 1.2.0 for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and considering how much fans have been complaining about the online and matchmaking components, this should be good to know.
One of the key changes in this update is the adjustment to the Quickplay settings. According to the patch notes, the game will now prioritize your preferred settings a bit more, but be warned that this will probably lengthen your matchmaking times as well.
For players who are having difficulty unlocking new fighters, this patch also adjusts the difficulty for challenger fights, making them a bit easier to handle.
Lastly, several fighters have also received balance tweaks and adjustments, though it’s not clear exactly what those changes are.
In addition to that, if you own a copy of Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu or Eevee, you’ll be able to get a Pikachu or Eevee fighter spirit within the game itself.
