Patch notes for fighting games helps a ton for players to understand the potential changes in the game’s meta. But unless you’re very familiar with a particular character, the significance of changes might just go over your head. Here’s where the Beefy Smash Doods have provided some assistance to understand all the changes for the latest version of Smash Ultimate.
This video comparison really helps to show the real world significance of the changes made in Smash version 8. You can see for yourself how much faster moves are or how much more knock back they do. The video does an amazing job by including trajectory lines and also having slow motion footage to hone in on some harder to see changes. The narration also gives some great info about things like damage and property changes (spoiler, Diddy Kong did lose his infinite combo).
