Did you hear the news first from ZeRo? It's true!

YouTube Video:


That's right, Super Smash Flash 2 Beta v1.2 is coming your way next week on February 14th!

But that's not all, along with it comes a new release strategy for 2020 dubbed the "Rotation Release Cycle". This year we're planning to release an update to SSF2 every 2 months, starting this March!

Rotation Release Cycle? Why?

Long story short, it has been far too long since the last update. We want 2020 to be a big year for SSF2 development, so we're trying something new to kick things into gear. Typically we like to wait until everything is "perfect" before releasing updates, but we realized that in doing so that the time between releases was becoming excessively long. There is already plenty of footage of v1.2 in the wild, whether it be from our livestreams at Super Smash Con or from our fellow content creators. So we thought it was time to change things up a bit and let you, the fans, enjoy our new content as it becomes playable.

So this February patch is being considered a bonus update as we begin this new release cycle. In other words, you're getting v1.2 early! Of course this means there might be a few pieces of content missing or in need of some polish. But don't worry, our goal is to roll select content out to you as it becomes playable rather than waiting until everything is 100%. If any unfinished content just misses the March patch, you bet it will be ready by May! You can also expect other new content to trickle in with each patch release to keep things fresh all year-round.

As for versioning, we will be sticking with v1.2.x until such a time we feel there is enough of a major change to constitute a version bump. So expect the March patch to be v1.2.1, May patch to be v1.2.2, etc. unless we say otherwise at the time of each release.

Wait, so are Final Smashes back?

Yes they are! (Well, mostly!) There will be some characters in need of additional polish, as well as a small handful final smashes that are still disabled. But the vast majority of the cast has them ready to go, and we thought there was no point in waiting any further to release the others. You can expect us to wrap up the remaining few over the next patch or two.

MGN Downtime

In order to get SSF2's online services ready for the new patch, MGN will be offline on February 13th starting at approximately 5PM ET. Services will be restored upon the release of the new patch.

What's this about a Twitter Giveaway?

Professional smasher and content creator ZeRo has been creating SSF2 videos over the past few weeks, and we had him recently announce the new release date for v1.2. So in order to celebrate, we're running a giveaway for an Amazon Gift Card plus copies of Yeah Jam Fury: UME on Twitter! All you have to do is follow us and re-tweet this post below:

https://twitter.com/McLeodGaming/status/1225793995202105345

One lucky randomly selected winner will get a $50 Amazon Gift Card and a free Steam key for Yeah Jam Fury: UME, while 5 additional randomly selected winners will also get YJF Steam Keys.

We hope you're excited as we are for this next update!

Cool, it coincides with the release of the Sonic movie too!

Why not make the "rotations" on the 20th (February excluded) to coincide with the mysterious Sonic 20 plan too?
