Being a Sonic fan in a Nintendo world is tough. Especially in Nintendo Switch brawler Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, where playing as the blue blur has always felt a little… held back. Well, today brings a new update to the fighting party game – introducing new character Steve from Minecraft as well as improving Sonic’s combat statistics!
Thanks to patch notes found on Nintendo’s official website, we now understand that Sonic will have reduced vulnerability, increased power and higher agility when performing certain moves. Full list of notes below.
Sonic is going to need all that power to ‘send Mario to Minecraft’ – a meme that was born on the day Steve was announced as a new fighter for the game. In the trailer, which you can see below, Sonic lands Mario with a punch so powerful he goes flying straight into the Minecraft world.
With this new update, Sonic really is playing with power. Be sure to download the update to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate today and let us know how different Sonic feels to play!
