We haven't had one of those since The Subspace Emissary in Super Smash Bros. Dracula's Castle is the new stage, which spawns items from candlesticks and features appearances from Castlevania bosses including Dracula, and 34 songs from the series. Talking about previous games, Sakurai shared the number of stages in each game of the series so far.

In addition to Simon, you can also play as Richter Belmont from Castlevania: Rondo of Blood. The son of Dracula will appear as a particularly fearsome Assist Trophy, attacking in his normal dhampir form as well as turning into mist or a swarm of bats. Ultimate was the addition of King K. Rool as a playable character. King K. Rool, a frequent foe of Donkey Kong, is joining the roster. The Donkey Kong Country villain can fire his crown as a boomerang and summon a giant cannon for his Final Smash.

Stages: Smash Bros. mastermind Masahiro Sakurai revealed Ultimate will have a rather absurd 103 stages.

That's in stark contrast to the US' one-size-fits-all tariff approach, which was ill-considered, they said. USA tariffs on another $16 billion worth of Chinese imports are set to be enacted at a later date.

Pokemon Stadium, Garden of Hope, Brinstar Depths, the Summit (Ice Climbers), Unova Pokemon League, Magicant, Gamer (Game and Wario), and Final Destination are returning. As a result of this, and the fact we didn't get a post trailer run down from Sakurai, we now don't know much about how the character will fight. Here's a look at the full stage select screen... Classic mode, which made its debut way back in the very first Super Smash Bros game for N64, will be returning in Ultimate. There is also a Sound Test menu, which lets you create custom playlists that can be listened to when your Switch is in Sleep Mode. This includes Sonic's pal Knuckles the Echidna, Zero from Mega Man X, Metal Gear Solid's Gray Fox, Shovel Knight, Krystal the fox from Star Fox Adventures, and most notably, the dragon Rathalos from the Monster Hunter series. There's even a completely new mode of gameplay which Sakurai teased but did not reveal. Finally, there will be a new Stage Morph feature that allows players to pick two different stages and transition between them in the middle of a battle. The first the eliminate the opposing team, wins.

Some say the best way to play Smash is with a GameCube controller. The Direct also showed a glimpse of the Tourney Mode in Ultimate, which supports up to 32 players and can mix-and-match players in with CPU opponents.

Last but not least here, to show the upgraded looks from the original versions a side-by-side was shown of Kirby's Fountain of Dreams, aka the most gorgeous Smash Bros. stage ever.
