Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Patch 10.1.0 felt fairly low for those expecting major adjustments to the game’s balance. In addition to adding Sepiroth to the game’s roster for those who never completed the Sepiroth Challenge while it was available, this patch mostly focused on making multi-hitting moves that behave with greater stability.
However, there was a strange change with Olimar that is probably not understood by anyone who has not been playing Olimar for these two years. “After throwing a Pikmin with a side smash attack or side special, if there are other Pikmin nearby when using the special, there will be an air attack using the Pikmin.” Beefy Smash Dudes recently uploaded a video that actually shows this and other 10.1.0 changes during gameplay.
Essentially, any of Olimar’s aerials that include Pikmin – Forward Aerial, Down Aerial, Up Aerial, and Back Aerial – will fail first if Olimar inputs the appropriate command during a situation where the particular was active and Was away from Olymar as a result of using Pikmin. Smash ahead or side special.
Funnily enough, this particular change was actually implemented in the 10.0.0 patch version. We are only being told to improve the notes for the 10.1.0 update.
Some are saying that Fox McCloud was the “big winner” of the patch for his forward Ariel and hitbox improvements for his Ariel. These attacks are important to Fox because they allow specific hitconferences in moves that K.O.
