From SmashWiki, the Super Smash Bros. wiki

This is a list of known changes in version 3.0.0 of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Universal[edit]

The new update brings new features on the general gameplay side:

  • Buff Perfect shielding against a projectile has less ending lag.
  • Nerf Dodges are more punishable when staled.
  • Change Stun Jacket has been removed.
  • Change Created glitch where electric hitboxes have increased hitlag in training mode.

Stages[edit]

  • Bug fix Fixed a visual glitch on the Acorn Plains layout Mushroom Kingdom U where looking at two clouds from a lower angle will cause the one on front to overlap the other in a transparent sheet.
  • Bug fix Removed a layer inside the platforms on Kalos Pokémon League which caused some textures and model fragments to become transparent when looking at certain characters.
  • Bug fix Fixed a visual glitch on Pilotwings which caused some models to clip through the screen.

Mario[edit]

  • Nerf Fireball deals less shield damage.
  • Buff At the start of Mario Finale, nearby opponents will be slowed down for a longer period.

  • Buff Giant Punch has more range, no longer missing opponents up close.

Link[edit]

Samus[edit]

  • Nerf Charge Shot deals significantly less shield damage.
  • Bug fix Samus no longer launches herself off screen when grab and Bomb occur at the same time.
    • Nerf However, the phantom knockback would still occur at the exact frame of the hitbox and the explosion.

Dark Samus[edit]

  • Nerf Charge Shot deals significantly less shield damage.
  • Bug fix Dark Samus no longer launches herself off screen when grab and Bomb occur at the same time.
    • Nerf However, the phantom knockback would still occur at the exact frame of the hitbox and the explosion.
  • Change Created visual glitch where Dark Samus's tether grab beam would disconnect from her arm when performed in the air before landing.

Yoshi[edit]

Kirby[edit]

  • Buff Up smash's clean hit has a longer duration, with the late hit having a shorter duration instead (frame 12 (strong)/13-14 (mid)/15-17 (late) → 12-14/15-16/17).
  • Buff Neutral aerial has less ending lag (FAF 63 → 55) and auto-cancels earlier (frame 56 → 51).

  • Inhale
    • Buff Kirby dies later when performing a Kirbycide with Inhale, though he still dies first. This gives the opponent less time to recover after Kirby is KO'd.
    • Buff Kirby cannot lose Copy Abilities received by Inhale for a longer period of time (5 seconds → 10).
    • Buff Kirby is less likely to lose Copy Abilities when getting hit (Chance to lose: Damage Received/70 * 130% → Damage Received/70 * 100%).

      • Bug fix Fixed a visual glitch where Kirby’s Bandana from Snake would move during the camera view of each frame.

      • Bug fix Removed Infinite floating glitch that occurs when Kirby uses multiple copied Mii Swordfighter's Gale Strikes in the air after perfoming a throw that left him in the air.
      • Bug fix Removed Gliding glitch when Kirby uses a copied and B-reversed Mii Swordfighter's Gale Strike while running.
  • Buff Final Cutter can snap to the ledge earlier (frame 36 → 33).

  • Nerf Up smash and down smash are automatically unleashed from charging state earlier and hit less often while charging (frames between hits: 3 → 5).
  • Buff PK Flash has more range.

  • Nerf Daisy Blossom has a slightly reduced sleep time period (clean: 260/200/160 (scaling) → 230/130/100, late: 210/170/140 (scaling) → 200/130/100).

Pichu[edit]
