A new update is out for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, bringing a number of adjustments to the power and capabilities of each fighter. The four Metroid fighters – Samus, Zero Suit Samus, Ridley and Dark Samus – have each received some buffs, and some nerfs. Most of these fixes are to shorten the amount of time that a character cannot grab an edge after they use a move.
