In all, Nintendo announced five new characters for Super Smash Bros Ultimate today: Simon and Richter Belmont from Castlevania, Chrom from Fire Emblem, Dark Samus, and King K. Rool from Donkey Kong Country.

As far as content goes, it's also a great fit.

King K. Rool has climed aboard the Smash Ultimate roster. He'll utilize a blunderbuss to fire cannonballs at unsuspecting enemies, and throw his crown as a projectile. 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. Ultimate, players can select tracks by series.

Smashdown mode is a new mode that removes characters from the selection as they are chosen for battle. It's a lot to take in, but if you have about half an hour to spare, you can check out the entire Smash Bros.

If you don't count the Smash original stages Battlefield, Final Destination, and Big Battlefield that's 100 glorious stages from all these series in one place. The stage is going completely over-the-top with 34 music tracks, from across the Castlevania series.

New Donk City Hall from Super Mario Odyssey, complete with Pauline performance of "Jump Up, Super Star" will be a roving platform stage.

Final Smash Meter: In addition to regular Final Smashes that can be activated after breaking a Smash Ball, the Final Smash Meter is now a selectable option. "Mankind ill needs a savior such as you".

The introductory video for the Smash Direct presentation began with Luigi wandering around Dracula's Castle, where it became clear that the Poltergust was no match for Death itself. Fans were understandably concerned.

To make up for the gaping hole left by Luigi's omission in the game and the parallel Nintendo Universe, the game developers are offering 4 new playable character for the upcoming launch. I'm pretty sure that makes him undead, one of the things he fears most in this terrifying world.
