Let us discuss the various changes being applied to Captain Falcon in the latest entry of the long-running fighting game franchise.
Moves and Combos
Flaming Punch Forward Smash is a new offensive move added to the Captain’s tool-set. This a ground-based attack and the character performs a backhanded attack while you can see the cool fiery effects around his hands.
The move has good range and is quick to initiate. His dashes and airspeed have both received a boost in the movement speed.
Raptor Boost now has super armor to absorb hits. However, the downside is that it now causes less knock-back or pushback on hit.

Neutral Attack: Captain Falcon punches forth once, then a second time, and finishes with a knee jab; if the button is pressed quickly enough, he will unleash a flurry of quick punches that finishes with a final strong punch.
