‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ adds popular characters from ‘Castlevania’ and ‘Donkey Kong’

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Returns with Castlevania's Simon Belmont and Way More Info

Ultimate bundle that will arrive alongside the regular edition of the game. The retro hero will come partnered with his iconic whip, although his look has been slightly altered, and his echo fighter will be Richter Belmont from the same series. Sakurai also revealed two other playable characters during the Direct: Fire Emblem's Chrom (an echo fighter of Roy) and Metroid's Dark Samus (an echo fighter of Samus).

The Nintendo Switch first added support for GameCube controllers back in October so players with the Wii U's GameCube controller adaptor could use their preferred method on Switch. Alucard from Symphony will also be available in Smash Ultimate as an assist trophy, and there's a new, spooky stage based on Dracula's Castle. For assists, we have Zero from the Mega Man X series, Knuckles from Sonic The Hedgehog, Krystal from Star Fox Adventures, Rathalos from the Monster Hunter series, Shovel Knight, and the evil Moon from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Bosses from across the #Castlevania series will appear in this stage, so watch out! Well, purists will be in luck when Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, meaning each fighter will have set of stages and fighters that they must take on consecutively.

Final Smashes now have a meter that can be filled to perform a slightly weaker version of the attack than the Smash Ball allows.

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. 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. This single-player mode is pretty straightforward, as it simply challenges players to fight through a line up of different characters, culminating with a fight against Master Hand (or at least that's the way it's worked in previous games).

Dallas County First West Nile Death 2018
A Dallas resident is the first person to die from West Nile virus this year in Dallas County, health officials announced Tuesday. Between 70 percent and 80 percent of people that become infected with West Nile Virus do not develop any symptoms.

Training will feature an exclusive stage that measures the distance of moves both at low and high health.

So you may have seen the Nintendo Direct earlier today in which we saw the debut of the Belmonts from the Castlevania series in Super Smash Bros.

There was a blurred icon on the first page of the main menu, with a objective to be revealed later.

At first glance this may seem a fairly vague kind of leak but there really isn't any explanation for it other than Castlevania is now part of Super Smash Bros.
