Beta 1.3

Beta 1.3 is the fourth revision of the final major release of the Super Smash Flash 2 Demo and followed the third beta phase of development. It was the last of two versions released in 2020.

Differences from Beta 1.2

This demo features many differences from Beta 1.2, such as Ganondorf being added as a new unlockable character, Fourside getting a complete update, Butter Building and Fairy Glade getting added as a new stages, and Emerald Cave receiving its alternate music track. Replays can now be auto-saved by enabling it in the data menu. Players can also hold left or right to slow down or fast-forward, hold the special button to pause, hold the shield button to resume, and press the grab button when paused to go frame-by-frame when viewing a replay. Stadium mode says "New Record!" when a new record is set, and players now have the ability to save replays from this mode. Character Specific Break the Targets Stages have made their return. The auto-updater was removed and replaced with the News Feed functionality.
