A Super Smash Bros Ultimate Small Battlefield stage has appeared. The third Battlefield is a part of the August 4, 2020 update 8.1.0. Said update also adjusts the music for Battlefield stages and improves the online experience. Specifically, Masahiro Sakurai tweeted and said the online 1v1 might be better.

As you might expect, Super Smash Bros Ultimate Small Battlefield’s title is quite telling. It takes the Battlefield stage and makes it smaller. Also, it, Battlefield, Big Battlefield, and Final Destination can have any of the almost 1,000 songs in the game played while you’re in that stage after the update.

Here are the full Super Smash Bros Ultimate 8.1.0 patch notes.


  • The Small Battlefield stage has been added. You can also set Small Battlefield as a Preferred Rule in Online battles.
  • You can now select any stage-specific music for the Battlefield, Small Battlefield, Big Battlefield, and Final Destination stages.


  • The online user experience has been adjusted.
  • The way matching is determined when using Preferred Rules has been adjusted.
  • Following a look at the current number of players eligible for Elite Smash, the threshold for entry has been recalculated to allow more players. Additionally, the way initial values for Global Smash Power are calculated has also been adjusted.

Further investigations and adjustments to Online mode are expected.


  • Several issues have been fixed to improve gameplay experience.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available on the Nintendo Switch. The last Super Smash Bros. Ultimate additions added Octopath Traveler Spirits and Min Min.
