It’s still 4 more months before the release of Super Smash Bros. But Nintendo reckons itself not letting the dust settle with the continuous deluge of information to keep their fans excited for its upcoming release. And we have collated some of the things that you must know after the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct.


Super Smash Bros. x Castlevania

First on our list is the much-awaited inclusion of the legendary vampire hunter from the Castlevania series, Simon Belmont. He’ll be sporting some of his signature items and moves in the game. And if you’re a fan, you will definitely be delighted to know that his iconic whip will get much of the spotlight. However, it must be noted that according to director Masahiro Sakurai, the whip will be quite slow. Hence, it will make him more vulnerable. The good side though is the fact that it has a longer average reach compared with the other fighters giving more advantage.


Regarding the stage, Simon takes dominion over the Dracula’s Castle. As per Sakurai, this stage will serve as the darkest stage in the game. Moreover, some of the Castlevania bosses such as Flea Man and Medusa will also appear in the said stage. On the other hand, it is still a mystery if Dracula will have an appearance. By the way, the Dracula’s Castle boasts 34 classic and new music tracks.


Apart from the expected names mentioned, we can also get a glimpse of Richer Belmont, Simon’s descendant. Richter will serve as an Echo Character. Moreover, we can catch Alucard, an iconic protagonist in Castlevania, as an Assist Trophy.

For those who may not be familiar with the term “echo fighter,” its definition is stated below for your convenience.

Echo Fighter. Edit. Echo Fighter is a term used to describe characters who are considered a clone of another character but who, themselves, is an entirely different character in general. They are featured in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.



More so, below is the definition of an “assist trophy.”

The Assist Trophy (アシストフィギュア, Assist Figure) is an item introduced in Super Smash Bros. Brawl that, when picked up, breaks open and summons a random Nintendo or third-party character to aid the user. Assist Trophies work very similarly to Poké Balls.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Limited Edition x GameCube Controller

There is still more that we can expect from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Apart from the iconic characters that will be joining aborad, GameCube controller will quench the nostalgia that gamers feel with the bygones of the Switch controllers. Brace yourself with the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate [Limited Edition].

But just as how too-good-to-be-true it can be, this limited edition has a downside attached to it. This will only have one controller. Hence, it will leave you with the burden of looking for your old GameCube controller, if you have, or buy a new one. No need to fret, though. Nintendo has confirmed that the controller will be compatible with Switch using USB adapters.

It was a surprise for some gamers. Or was it? But what we are quite sure of is the fact that the name comes off as a “slightly rubbish name.” Event Donkey Kong’s Country designer, Gregg Mayles, has something to say about it.
