Simon Belmont And Richter Belmont From Castlevania Join Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Nintendo Direct Nintendo Direct

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. How else would he release the items hiding in all the candlesticks lighting Dracula's castle? He's also bringing along his grandkid (or maybe great grandkid, or grand nephew, it's all kind of fuzzy) Richter Belmont, the main hero of Castlevania: Rondo of Blood.

The Kremling leader showed up for the first time in Donkey Kong Country, but he may be best remembered for his extensive boss fight in Donkey Kong 64.

Other Echo Fighters introduced during the direct include Chrom from Fire Emblem and Dark Samus from the Metroid Prime series. These two will make lasting additions to the brawler's giant, yet beloved roster.

The limited edition version of the game will include Super Smash Bros. You'll even be able to listen to Ultimate's music while the Switch's screen is off, which is a nice little touch.

Just as well, we'll see a new batch of Assist Trophies added in Ultimate too. Alucard will appear as an assist trophy.

And if you thought that was insane, just wait 'til you hear how many musical tracks the game will feature: 900. We'll keep you posted on any and all Smash news until then.

Nintendo of Europe tweeted out an announcement of the Smash Bros.

Ultimate's Training mode will come with a grid overlay, allowing you to easily determine ranges on abilities. This bundle will contain a copy of the game (obviously), a GameCube Controller Super Smash Bros.

Tourney Mode - Exactly what it sounds like - play through tournaments with up to 32 players!
