  • Added five exercises to “Training”, and added difficulty level indications.

 

  • Adjusted the way the rush gauge fills, decreasing the amount gained for punches that do not connect with the opponent.

 

  • When 3-4 players start a battle, instructions on how to switch targets will now be displayed. A cursor will also be displayed above the current target for a set time.

 

  • Adjusted hitbox sizes for fighters, improving issues where hits were not registered despite looking like hits.

 

  • Changed the pause, results, and replay menus in “Training” to be more convenient.

 

  • For “Best Stage” in Stats, made it harder for less frequently played stages to be selected, even if you have a high win ration on them.
