Nintendo announces more fighters and a new mystery for ‘Smash Brothers Ultimate’

Other newly-announced echo fighters include Chrom, from Fire Emblem: Awakening, who will be Roy's echo, and Dark Samus, the corrupted Phazon duplicate of Samus Aran from Metroid Prime 3.

There weren't a ton of new stages announced today, but we did to see a couple new ones.

As rumored last night Simon Belmont of the original Castlevania series has entered the roster, and Richter Belmont as an Echo fighter.

An excellent new stage showcased is New Donk City Hall. Besides a new stage based on an actual grid that helps measure distance, it can also transition into a Battlefield-style stage complete with platforms. Players will also be given the chance to morph into a 2nd character mid-battle.

KitGuru Says: The amount of content being thrown into this version of Super Smash Bros is honestly quite astounding. Ultimate, as announced in a Nintendo Direct presentation. Players will have 28 hours worth of music tracks to pick from, but you won't be able to play just any theme music on any stage.

Now, view the new 27-minute "Super Smash Bros. He'll assist the player with his Crissaegrim sword, and vampire powers". Knuckles, everyone's favorite red echidna, will feature as an assist trophy, along with Zero from Mega Man X, Shovel Knight, and Alucard. "As you can see, there's a mysterious mode here, but we can't talk about that just yet". You can pre-order the GameCube controllers now from Amazon for $30 United States dollars, and if you're not planning to get the limited edition bundle, you can also pre-order an adapter. Haha, yeah, Super Smash Bros.

It'll also feature more than 800 tracks to listen to in battle. The new Stamina Battle mode has fighters fight until all stamina is lost and there's one fighter left standing. Though it's fairly simple, it's also quite a bit different from the other two standard modes, which focus on earning points through knock outs.

A new mode called Squad Strike will use 3 or 5 fighters to create elimination matches.

Many of you may be wondering why Ditto, an iconic Pokemon from the very first Pokemon games, wasn't included in previous Smash Bros. games.

Tourney Mode: Up to 32 players can participate in Tourney mode, making it great for parties or events with a lot of people.
