Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Update 8.1.0 Is Live, And It Adds A New Free Stage

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has just received a new patch with Update 8.1.0, and it has made a surprising addition–a new stage. Small Battlefield–which is like Battlefield, but smaller–is now available for all players.

As of this update, you will be able to pick Small Battlefield as a preferred rule for online matches, which is good if you want a tighter arena for you and your opponent to battle on. You can also now pick any usually stage-specific music for this level, as well as Battlefield, Big Battlefield, and Final Destination.

This update includes some adjustments to online, including a lower eligibility to qualify for Elite Smash in the quickplay menu. This means that more players will be allowed into this mode. “Additionally, the way initial values for Global Smash Power are calculated has also been adjusted,” the update reads.

Beyond this, several other tweaks have been made, but the patch notes do not get into specifics.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s last major update was 8.0.0, which added Min-Min from Arms as a new fighter.
