A new balance update is out for Smash 4 – and the only confirmed changes are to Bayonetta’s data.

Perhaps the most crippling change is to the SDI multiplier rising from 1 to 2, meaning that her combos can be escaped very easily by the majority of characters. Competitive player ESAM demonstrates this change here:

Bayonetta has been causing controversy in the competitive scene since her release, with international champion ZeRo calling her ‘toxic’ whilst /r/smashbros currently chants ‘DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD.’ 

Whilst unconfirmed, there are reports of Pac-Man allegedly receiving an endlag buff on his grab. This has yet to be acknowledged by any community authorities, however.
