Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Limited Edition comes with a GameCube controller

Nintendo Direct

Toward the end of the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Nintendo Direct, a new mode was teased. Simon wields the Vampire Killer and some of the original Castlevania's sub weapons, and his whip has full control and longer reach than any other regular attack. You can choose to stack all of the echo fighters or have them display separately on the character select screen. How else would he release the items hiding in all the candlesticks lighting Dracula's castle?

With all of these Castlevania-related additions to Smash Bros., one would think that a new Castlevania game is on the way, right?

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. Sakurai also revealed two other playable characters during the Direct: Fire Emblem's Chrom (an echo fighter of Roy) and Metroid's Dark Samus (an echo fighter of Samus).

An updated version of the official artwork for the entire roster of Super Smash Bros.

Zero, Knuckles, Krystal, Klaptrap, Kapp'n, Chef Kawasaki, Gray Fox, Nikki, Shovel Knight, the Majora's Mask moon, and Rathalos (Monster Hunter) are new Assist Trophies.

Backed Republican leads close U.S. House race in Ohio
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Decision Desk tweeted at 10:40 p.m. eastern that Balderson had a 1,766 vote lead. Mr Balderson and Mr O'Connor will have to fight the seat again in November. "A Republican loss well might tell us more".

Nintendo has confirmed that Luigi is not dead, despite the lanky plumber apparently being brutally and unceremoniously killed off in the Super Smash Bros.

Here's the breakdown of all the new additions if you missed the livestream.

Will you be dropping some cash on the Super Smash Bros. There are sub sections for both Pokémon and Assist Trophies. Classic mode, which made its debut way back in the very first Super Smash Bros game for N64, will be returning in Ultimate. No two final smashes will be able to be unleashed at the same time.

A new mode called Squad Strike will use 3 or 5 fighters to create elimination matches. You can fill any gaps you may have with AI players too, making this a viable mode for smaller groups as well. Training mode is even improved, featuring an exclusive stage that features a grid that helps determine the distance and trajectory of abilities and fighter knockback. Classic mode makes a return, rounding out the modes included in Smash Ultimate. The big question for the rest of the year, for Smash fans, is now going to be what that mode could possibly be.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch supports up to eight players and will be available December 7, 2018.
