Brawl of the Week – KO Mania!

Square off against your opponent in this hard hitting KO fest. Chew through your foe’s 5 Stocks with damage cranked up to an insane 300%! Send your challenger into orbit before they know what hit them. First to 5 KOs wins!

  • 1v1
  • 5 Stocks!
  • 300% Damage!

Game Improvements

  • Improved memory clean up on consoles by making it multi-threaded, allowing it to complete its task faster. Forced memory clean up to occur when loading a match and reduced its frequency, so it is unlikely to occur during a typical match. This allows for smoother gameplay framerates on consoles (less likely to drop multiple frames).
  • Nintendo Switch: Added a separate Handheld Camera Mode system setting that is used in place of the normal Camera Mode when the Switch is undocked. By default, Handheld Camera is set to the new Close camera setting.
  • Added a Close camera setting, intended for handheld play but available on all platforms.
  • Choosing random Defeat Taunt will now randomly choose between all owned Taunts instead of defaulting to only Facepalm.
  • Improved UI render performance of player names during gameplay.
  • Adjusted the art of Rocket Lance during side light active frames to better visually match the threat of the move.

New controller option: Improved Joysticks

  • This will be on by default for all players on all platforms.
  • If you’re on Switch, this will be different. To revert back to the way the sticks used to work, uncheck the “Improved Joysticks” box.
  • If the box is unchecked, the joystick interpretation will be straightforward with each of the 4 directions functioning completely independently from each other. If your stick is at least halfway in a direction, that direction will be considered held.
  • If the box is left checked, the joystick interpretation will try to be smarter about how it determines your stick direction. First, it will take the stick’s position relative to your thumb into account since what most people input as “up” on the stick is slightly affected by where the stick is relative to the base of their thumb.


  • Fixed UI bug causing the arrows above players to not reflect team color when playing on console.
  • Fixed UI bug causing bot names to not correctly update when changing Legends during the Strikeout game mode.
  • Mammoth Megafan Sidekick from the BCX 2018 Pack now has the correct in-game display name.
  • Fixed minor graphical issues with Rayman’s head in character select.
  • Fixed bug causing the Kung Foot game mode icon to not correctly appear during character select.
  • In Kung Foot, fixed some rare visual bugs where the ball’s spinning would change direction or accelerate without reason.
  • Fixed a replay bug where the marker on the replay timeline wouldn’t update correctly in game modes that force teams to be on.
  • Fixed a rare bug that could cause the pause menu to display over the scoreboard and lock up the game as a result.
  • Additional notes: none.
