The developer isn't exactly synonymous with post-release updates, especially ones meant mainly to tweak and adjust gameplay balance.

Small tweaks in the forms of buffs or nerfs to specific characters can make a huge difference, and the minute details will be noticed and appreciated by the competitive community (provided Nintendo doesn't worsen problem areas).
