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:

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.
