The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version 10.1 update is now live, bringing with it Sephiroth and the rest of Smash Bros.’ new Final Fantasy-themed content. The update has also made a handful of fighter adjustments, with Nintendo now releasing the list of fighters that have been tweaked.
The Sephiroth Challenger Pack is now available to purchase and use for players who didn’t already unlock him early, along with a handful of Final Fantasy-themed outfits for Mii Fighters. 13 new Final Fantasy characters have been added as Spirits in the shop, including Tifa, Aerith, Barret, and even summons like Shiva and Ifrit.
Cloud has also received a minor cosmetic tweak, with his Final Smash now triggering Omnislash Ver. 5 instead of a regular Omnislash for P2, P4, P6, and P8 color variants. The effect is the same, with the change being purely aesthetic.
Nintendo has also released the list of fighter adjustments added in the new patch–they mostly look to be buffs to various characters, with range increases and tweaks that make regular attacks “easier to hit multiple times.” The characters that have been changed include Fox, Luigi, Zelda, Pichu, Young Link, Toon Link, Olimar, Rosalina, Mii Gunner, and Duck Hunt. You can see the full list of tweaks here.
Nintendo is currently giving away a free item pack for Switch Online subscribers, including a handful of helpful items for the game’s Spirit Board mode. Check out the details here.
