Nintendo Leaks New 'Super Smash Bros.' Character

Nintendo Direct

Nintendo Direct

Dracula's Castle is the new stage, which spawns items from candlesticks and features appearances from Castlevania bosses including Dracula, and 34 songs from the series. Richter will share many of Simon's moves, but has a few of his own-he shows off a couple of his acrobatic moves from Rondo in the trailer - and his trademark stilted voice acting from 1998's Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. Alucard will appear as an assist trophy. Ultimate was the addition of King K. Rool as a playable character. New additions include one of Donkey Kong's most formidable foes, King K. Rool, and Castlevania vampire hunter Simon Belmont. 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.

Other Echo Fighters introduced during the direct include Chrom from Fire Emblem and Dark Samus from the Metroid Prime series. The classic Pokemon Stadium, Unova Pokemon League, Garden of Hope, Brinstar Depths, Summit, Magicant, Gamer, and Final Destination stages were all confirmed to be returning. As far as the more specific changes to the game's rules and options, Sakurai detailed that Stamina Battles are now part of the standard fight options for matches alongside Stock and Timed Matches, and stage selection will come after adjusting the match type and rule set. Here's a look at the full stage select screen... Ultimate, the Japanese company has also revealed that the highly-anticipated fighting game will be compatible with the classic GameCube controllers.

Bearing all of this in mind, it's safe to say Super Smash Bros. When it comes to choosing music, the library you have available will be tied to the stage and the franchise it comes from. Players will also be given the chance to morph into a 2nd character mid-battle. 3-on-3 or 5-on-5 battles will be available, with each player controlling an entire team.
