King K. Rool and Simon Belmont
Hey so, that already massive list of fighters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, just grew by two more today. Nintendo announced that Castlevania's Simon Belmont and Donkey Kong Country's villain, King K. Rool, will be included in a roster that includes pretty much every characters from every Nintendo and third-party game in the world, except Waluigi.

But wait, there's more! ... Unless you're Waluigi or a Waluigi fan, then there's nothing here for you. Today's Nintendo Direct reveal obviously included more than just two new characater reveals. It included the reveal of some Echo Fighters like Chrom from Fire Emblem, and Dark Samus from the Metroid games.

Let's take a look at what all was revealed today.
Simon Belmont:King K. Rool: As the beloved villain from all three Donkey Kong Country games on Super NES, King K. Rool joins Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a playable fighter. He attacks with a blunderbuss that can fire cannonballs at opponents, and throws his crown, which acts like a boomerang.

Echo Fighters:Stages:Stage Morph: In a Super Smash Bros. first, the Stage Morph option will let players seamlessly transition between two different stages. When you select this option in the rules, one stage will transform into another during battle.

Music:Items:Assist Trophies:Classic Mode: The single-player mode in which players battle against a series of fighters will return in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Each fighter has a set of stages and opponents that she or he will face.

Stamina Battle: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. If enabled, players can charge their Final Smash Meter over the course of a battle. Once the Final Smash Meter is fully charged, players can unleash a less powerful Final Smash attack.

Squad Strike: When playing Squad Strike, players will participate in 5-on-5 or 3-on-3 skirmishes, with each player using either five or three consecutive fighters in one battle.

Tourney Mode: Up to 32 players can participate in Tourney mode, making it great for parties or events with a lot of people. And since Nintendo Switch can be played anywhere, these tournaments can even take place in unexpected places!

Smashdown: After battling in this mode, the previously selected fighters will no longer be available, forcing players to have to pick a different fighter for the next round. This mode favors players who are skilled with multiple fighters and encourages others to diversify their rosters.

Training: The improved Training mode in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate includes an exclusive stage that features a grid, used to help measure the distance and trajectory of special moves and fighter knockback.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be released on December 7 for the Nintendo Switch. You can watch the entire Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct, that aired earlier today, at the bottom of this post. You can also check out a long image that includes the massive roster lineup, except Waluigi.
