Super Smash Bros for Wii U/3DS is getting its version 1.1.6 patch later this month, and data-miners have already found out that it’ll bring some major nerfs to Bayonetta. [Thanks, SmashBoards.]

Keep in mind that the progress is at 90%, meaning there will likely be a few more changes found later. After a quick glance at the changes, one can assume that the update is being made by Nintendo as a measure to kill her 0%-to-death ladders while keeping the intent of her being a combo-based character.

 

Here’s a look at some hitbox changes as shown by Furil from SmashBoards:

 

2016-05-19_044647

2016-05-19_044655

Down-tilt hitbox changes

2016-05-19_044728 2016-05-19_044735

Downward angled Afterburner hitbox changes

 

While we don’t know the full changes for the version 1.1.6 update, it looks like Bayonetta is the only character that is getting any changes.

 

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS is currently available. Its version 1.1.6 update will go live sometime this month.
