The new original fighters that were featured in the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Nintendo Direct capped off the presentation. He got his first lead role in 2001's Luigi's Mansion on the Gamecube, and was played by John Leguizamo in the infamous Super Mario Bros movie.

Here's the breakdown of all the new additions if you missed the livestream. Ultimate, but don't worry if that's too much righteousness for you - King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong Country series is on his way, too. Simon Belmont is sporting his classic look from the 8-bit era and he wields all his traditional weapons, including the Vampire Killer whip, axe, cross, and holy water. They announced some new characters, stages, items, features, and tons of other rad stuff to look forward to this coming December.

Apparently, these two coloured chairs are a sign Waluigi will be a playable character in the game, despite the fact he's already an Assist Trophy.

Well, sort of. There are actually only two *brand* new pugilists, plus three extra "Echo" fighters - altered clones of existing characters.

Chrom from Fire Emblem Awakening is finally appearing in Smash as an echo fighter of Roy. The last huge tease for Super Smash Bros. Then Nintendo cuts straight to the action, showing off Simon Belmont's cool moves in Smash Bros Ultimate as if it hadn't just murdered the dungaree-wearing coward. With that in mind, it's unsurprising to see the company bring the controllers back for the Switch's upcoming Super Smash Bros. It's up to players to decide how they want them displayed. He kicked off the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Limited Edition? How about the new amiibo? The new Dracula's Castle stage is pretty awesome, too, with tons of bosses from throughout the series along with a whopping 34 arranged music tracks.

Speaking of earworms, the only thing more stacked than the stage selection is the game's soundtrack. Players will also be given the chance to morph into a 2nd character mid-battle. Rathalos is the first character in Smash history that can show up as both an assist trophy and a boss character in single-player modes. Thus, you can pick from a larger collection of music for each stage. Up until now, each stage had its own music track.
