The Interrupted Recovery FX has graduated from Test Features into the live game! When a player’s Recovery attack is interrupted early in its duration, it can be difficult to register that the resource was spent. We have added a visual and audio cue that highlights such situations, enabling both players to better respond. 

  • After testing this feature in Experimental and several major tournaments, the extra information it provides was found to be a great benefit to the game for players on either side of the exchange.
    • If your Recovery attack was interrupted you can quickly try to adjust your path back to the stage, but if you interrupted the opponent’s Recovery attack this is your signal to press the advantage! Stay alert for this flair especially during edgeguards to improve your combat prowess.

Celebrate the holidays and get your Snowbrawl on at 150% damage! Face off against 3 other Legends in this 3 minute FFA. Score 1 point for hitting someone with a snowball, 3 points for getting a KO, and lose 1 point for being KO’d. Most points at the end wins!

User Experience

  • For 144hz monitors, UnlockFPS now caps at 62 as higher numbers seemed to cause too frequent of garbage collection. Still remains a beta feature accessible on PC only by command line (-unlockfps).


  • We’ve adjusted the level list for Snowbrawl by adding Lost Labyrinth, Enigma, Fangwild, and Small Fangwild, as well as remove regular sized Titan’s End and Small Grumpy Temple.
    • If you would like to play on other maps, start a custom game of Snowbrawl and switch to the “All” map listing.
  • Big Crystal Temple has been added to the Free-for-All Queue and the “FFA,” “Big,” and “All” map sets.

User Interface

  • Fixed a display bug on consoles where certain attacks would show the wrong hurtbox at the end of their animation in Training Mode and Replays.
  • Fixed the names for the level lists of “Big” and “3v3.”

User Experience

  • Fixed a bug where it would sometimes take an extra game to see updated progress for some missions.
  • Fixed a bug that could cause network issues in large groups of Bubble Tag.
  • Fixed a crash in the “Inspect” menu for PS4.
  • Fixed a bug on PS4 where sometimes it would crash when leaving the post game screen quickly.
  • Fixed a crash that could result from going to the “Controls” screen, leaving, removing the last device that was viewed on that screen, and going back to the “Controls” screen.


  • Fixed a rare bug in Bubble Tag that could change your hurtbox shape while in a bubble.


  • Fixed an issue where Kaya’s hit effects would result in bubble effects instead of ice effects when brawling against a Pearl.

The new Legend rotation for this week includes: Gnash, Teros, Vector, Cross, Ada, Fait, Val, and Lin Fei.

  • Gnash – In the darkness before the dawn of history, this Legend was raised by the harsh jungle itself. This Super Hunter uses Grappling Hammer and Spear in battle.
