Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Returns with Castlevania's Simon Belmont and Way More Info

Simon, who has starred in Castlevania games ranging all the way back to the 1986 original on NES, will wield his famous whip in the new game. 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.

The game will feature 103 stages, or 100 if Battlefield/Big Battlefield/Final Destination are excluded, and all stages are unlocked from the start. You can also spot details on Stage Morph and My Music at the bottom. Those lucky enough to play the Super Smash Bros.

Richter is an Echo Fighter, meaning he's basically just a new skin for Simon, but it's still nice to see an underappreciated Belmont clan member represented.

Dracula, the big bad of the Castlevania series, will appear under undisclosed conditions, and his son Alucard is joining as new assist trophy. Ultimate all launching within three months of one another.

Lastly, and this one is a little bit looser. Morphing stages - switching between two stages mid-fight - have also been added.

Squad Strike is an interesting new mode that allows players to go head-to-head with groups of fighters instead of just one.

It'll also feature more than 800 tracks to listen to in battle. But Sakurai's narration (well, the English translation of his narration) specifically mentioned "a mysterious mode" that Nintendo isn't ready to talk about yet (the fuzzy one in the picture above).
