'Castlevania' is coming to 'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate'

'Castlevania' is coming to 'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate'”

The latest Nintendo Direct has landed, delivering a whole boatload of new Smash Bros. But Sakurai's narration (well, the English translation of his narration) specifically mentioned "a mysterious mode" that Nintendo isn't ready to talk about yet (the fuzzy one in the picture above). Castlevania's Simon Belmont and Richter Belmont, Donkey Kong's King K. Rool, and Metroid's Dark Samus will all make their debuts in the Super Smash Bros franchise. Ultimate roster as an Echo fighter.

On the Super Smash Bros. But judging by the gameplay video, he may be the most adaptable heavyweight character yet: throwing his crown like a boomerang, blasting fools with a blunderbuss, and lacing up a boxing glove for some fierce close-up damage.

In total, Smash Bros. But Sakurai was far from finished: He also showcased that over 800 tracks and over 100 stages are now revealed for the game, and also showed off some new items and assist trophies, including Shovel Knight from indie developer Yacht Club Games. This can be brought up at any time by pressing the ZR button, and offers players a variety of convenient shortcuts. It's up to players to decide how they want them displayed.

Remember how the original Super Smash Bros. had nine stages, assuming you unlocked Mushroom Kingdom? Ultimate, but there are new stages in the mix as well.

Simon's signature stage is Dracula's Castle, which includes cameos from all the series' most iconic bosses, including, naturally enough, Dracula himself. Ultimate will also feature some returning favorites, both for single and multiplayer situations. But in Super Smash Bros.

Items: New items being added to Super Smash Bros. Poké Balls also have a few new Pokémon that can be found, mostly focusing around the creatures introduced in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, such as Alolan Exeggutor, Solgaleo, Lunala, and more.

Dracula, the big bad of the Castlevania series, will appear under undisclosed conditions, and his son Alucard is joining as new assist trophy. Well, Sonic's friend Knuckles is here too, and so is Krystal from Star Fox, and Shovel Knight, and even frickin' Nikki from the 3DS Swapnote/Swapdoodle apps. Ultimate. Each fighter has a set of stages and opponents that she or he will face. Ultimate all launching within three months of one another.

Final Smash Meter: In addition to regular Final Smashes that can be activated after breaking a Smash Ball, the Final Smash Meter is now a selectable option. Here, players can pick from a 5-on-5 or 3-on-3 elimination battle. A Squad Strike mode will allow players to do battle in 5 vs 5 or 3 vs 3 formats, and as always all game play options can be enjoyed on-the-go. And since Nintendo Switch can be played anywhere, these tournaments can even take place in unexpected places! Players will battle against each other in a series of matches, but the roster gets smaller with each bout.

Training: The improved Training mode in Super Smash Bros. Ultimateincludes an exclusive stage that features a grid, used to help measure the distance and trajectory of special moves and fighter knockback.
