Nintendo Announces Four New Characters For

For example, I am someone who would be more than ready to plop down cash for a new Castlevania game, and to tell you the truth, I've never even beaten one Castlevania game before, but since I've been introduced to the deep lore that the series has to offer thanks to the brilliant Netflix animated adaptation, I'm all in.

There weren't a ton of new stages announced today, but we did to see a couple new ones.

His Final Smash is the Grand Cross and his stage is Dracula's Castle, which will have candles that contain items and 34 music tracks from the long-running adventure series. As for stages, there are now 103, to which Sakurai said, "We must be insane".

Castlevania hero Simon Belmont and Donkey Kong nemesis King K. Rool are joining the roster of Super Smash Bros.

Earlier this morning, Nintendo held a Nintendo Direct exclusively focusing on the upcoming Super Smash Bros.

As the beloved villain from all three Donkey Kong Country games on Super NES, King K. Rool joins Super Smash Bros. "He'll assist the player with his Crissaegrim sword, and vampire powers". Ultimate, but there are new stages in the mix as well. Knuckles, everyone's favorite red echidna, will feature as an assist trophy, along with Zero from Mega Man X, Shovel Knight, and Alucard. Echo fighters in Super Smash Bros. 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. Plus, they can all be played in eight player battles, and will be available from the start with no need to unlock any of them, with a few more shown off along the way. 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.

Here's the breakdown of all the new additions if you missed the livestream. After picking up to 32 participants (and how many of those will be CPUs) players are given bracket options that can include standard 1-on-1 battles or 4-on-4 madness with a shorter bracket. Echo fighters can be separated or stack in the character select menu.

Video game stories from other sites on the web. Ultimate includes an exclusive stage that features a grid, used to help measure the distance and trajectory of special moves and fighter knockback.

Because of these additions, Training mode sounds like it's going to be a great way to learn a new character quickly.

In the reveal that Castlevania's Simon Belfort would be in the game, Luigi is literally scared to death by a Grim Reaper figure, and his soul leaves his body. You can even have it jump back and forth again and again every minute by the look of things. Dark Samus was also revealed as the echo fighter as normal Samus and Chrom is finally coming to Smash Ultimate as an echo fighter of his daughter Lucina from Fire Emblem Awakening.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the latest in Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. series of crossover fighting games. While we wait for the next batch of announcements, let us know if you're excited for this game.
