Smash Bros. Ultimate: 5 New Characters Revealed!

Internet mourns Luigi’s death after brutal Smash Bros. trailer

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Returns with Castlevania's Simon Belmont and Way More Info

The Smash Bros Nintendo Direct has the world pumped for the new characters, stages, and modes in the latest title for the Nintendo Switch.

We normally wouldn't expect music to be a major focus of a Super Smash Bros presentation, but today it was.

Simon Belmont: Yes, the leak was legit - Konami's original vampire hunter is joining the fray!

Now we can finally have Ditto in Super Smash Bros. as it was intended. Simon seems a touch slow, but his whip gives him a huge amount of range and it looks like he hits hard.

Disney Streaming Service Won't Include Pre-2019 Star Wars Films
This service will rival Netflix, though Iger has said in the past that it will cost "significantly less" than Netflix. Comcast is still locked in a bidding war with Fox for control of Sky, the United Kingdom satellite TV distributor.

"Simon's stage is none other than Dracula's Castle!" It's unclear whether or not Ultimate's Classic mode will be any different, and if it'll be used at all for unlocking additional fighters as it has in the past. Nintendo and series creator Masahiro Sakurai managed to pack a lot into its relatively short running time, covering everything from new stages and characters to new assist trophies and game modes. Ultimate was the addition of King K. Rool as a playable character. King K. Rool, the villainous crocodile from the Donkey Kong franchise, showed up to beat the snot out of Kirby's King DeDeDe. He'll utilize a blunderbuss to fire cannonballs at unsuspecting enemies, and throw his crown as a projectile.

Echo Fighters: Richter Belmont wasn't the only Echo Fighter revealed - we're also getting Chrom from the Fire Emblem series (an echo of Roy) and Dark Samus (I think you can guess who she's an echo of). Ultimate was first revealed, the game promised to feature every character from the series thus far, and yet somehow Luigi was missing. More than 100 stages will be in the game, but because the popular Battlefield and Omega forms can also be selected for each stage, more than 300 total stages are available right from the start! Here's a look at the full stage select screen... Haha, yeah, Super Smash Bros. While we wait for the next batch of announcements, let us know if you're excited for this game.

Squad Strike: A team battle mode similar to what's actually found in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. Melee for the GameCube, according to the Super Smash Bros. wiki. Ultimate bundle that will arrive alongside the regular edition of the game. This elimination-style mode will create a dwindling roster of characters, and will encourage players to have to try out characters that may not quite be their mains to succeed against their adversary.
