While the Super Smash Bros. series has always been heralded for the huge assortment of characters from various franchises it has collected, the games have also been noted for bringing together some truly classic video game music, and in Super Smash Bros.
Both Dracula from Castlevania as well as Rathalos from Monster Hunter were mentioned as bosses and shown off in depth. How else would he release the items hiding in all the candlesticks lighting Dracula's castle?
Speaking of earworms, the only thing more stacked than the stage selection is the game's soundtrack.
Among the new stages shown off was New Donk City Hall from Super Mario Odyssey.
A fan-favorite character finally announced is Donkey Kong baddie King K. Rool. This occurred during a sequence revealing Castlevania's Simon and Richter Belmont would be new playable fighters. These two will make lasting additions to the brawler's giant, yet beloved roster.
The company has recently announced during its Direct conference that they will also be launching a Super Smash Bros. No word yet on pricing, but it will be launching on December 7, the same day as the game comes out.
Technically, Richter Belmont is an Echo Fighter of Simon Belmont - a new classification introduced in Super Smash Bros. There will be more than 800 tracks in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and for the first time, you'll be able to pick the song you want to hear as you fight. Alucard will appear as an assist trophy. This comes as a relief to many of his fans, as you can see in the responses below.
Will you be dropping some cash on the Super Smash Bros.
