Beta 1.2 is the third revision of the final major release of the Super Smash Flash 2 Demo and followed the second beta phase of development.
Differences from Beta 1.1
This demo features many differences from Beta 1.1, with the most notable being the addition of six new unlockable characters: Simon, Krystal, Rayman, Waluigi, Lucario, and Ryu. As with other versions of the demo, many changes have also been made to the returning characters, including Kirby, Ness, and Sora having completely new sprites.
Several new stages have been added as well, including Venus Lighthouse, The World That Never Was, Sky Pillar, Krazoa Palace, and Suzaku Castle. In addition to these, stages such as Mushroom Kingdom II and Nintendo 3DS received the stage hazards they had prior to being removed in Beta 1.0.
Smash Balls return to the game, yet again, bringing Final Smashes with them. Nagato and Riku were also added as Assist Trophies. This update also added several new items: the Blood Sword, Poison Bomb and Screw Attack. The Master Ball item got updated, now behaving similarly to the official Super Smash Bros. games, where it releases rare Pokémon. A new item, Trophy Stand, was added to act like the old Master Ball.
All characters were given new, far less limited costumes; every character's costume amount got changed to 12 costumes total, including the default one.
The HUD and UI received a visual upgrade. New visual effects for multiple occurrences, such as clanking and hitting an invincible foe, were added. New sound effects and voice clips were also added, most notably for the Firework item, and Pichu, respectively.
