“Yumiko Update” has gone live for @Brawlhalla!

Yesterday, Patch 2.59 went live for the free-to-play fighting game on PC, Brawlhalla. This patch introduces a new fighter named Yumiko the Kitsune, who wields a Bow and Hammer in combat. Test features have also been graduated while others have been removed and balance improvements have also been thrown in.

However, the introduction of this patch did bring about a few minor bugs that had to be corrected via a follow-up patch that was just released an hour ago. You can read up about Patch 2.59 above and the follow-up patch below.

A portion of the changes introduced by Patch 2.59 are listed below for your convenience, but we recommend you visit their blog to get the complete list as well as explanations from the dev team regarding each of these adjustments.
