The latest Nintendo Direct has landed, delivering a whole boatload of new Smash Bros. Ultimate-and, from the look of it, there's a lot to look forward to.
The event started off by confirming earlier reports of Simon Belmont, from the Castlevania series, joining the fight. Richter Belmont, Simon's descendant and echo fighter, is best known for his Castlevania: Symphony of the Night appearance (and excellent quotes).
Echo fighters are playable, cloned versions of other characters with different skins, voice lines, and outfits. Fire Emblem'sChrom will be an echo of Lucina, whilst Dark Samus will echo Samus. Dubbed the Smash Bros. Ultimate. While there were a ton of unbelievable reveals, perhaps the most exciting was the announcement of Castlevania'sSimon Belmont as a new fighter. Currently, we can only assume that the new, unannounced mode revolves around investigating this horrendous crime. Ultimate was renamed to "Bloody Tears/Monster Dance", two music tracks from the Castlevania series that date back to the original NES entry in the series.
With such a large library of music to choose from, some improvements were also made to make it easier to listen to it. As you may expect, they're based on Samus and Marth respectively, though unlike Richter their play styles and attacks vary slightly from their base characters.
Along with the music options and Castlevania additions, Nintendo announced another new fighter: King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong franchise. But, as always, Smash Bros. is expected to steal the show, which is why Nintendo is dedicating an entire Direct live stream to the game on August 8th at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET. 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).
