Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct 8.8.2018
For anyone that missed the Smash Direct.
Watch it above or read my highlights below.
CastleVania boyzSuper Smash Bros. Ultimate - Castlevania's Simon And Richter Belmont Character Reveal Trailer
(Alucard is only an assist trophy, boo!)
Dark Samus and Chrom echo fighters.
Game has 103 sages, all of which are playable in 8 player mode, all with omega forms, all with the option of turning off stage hazards.
You can even have the stages transition into other stages during the fight ala how that one Fire Emblem stage worked in the past. Can only be done with two stages.
No more stage exclusive songs, songs from a series can be played on any stage from that series.
Mimikyu, Zero, Krystal, Gray Fox, Shovel Knight and Wario Ware's Ashley are assists. Bunch of characters deconfirmed there.
Rathalos is both a boss and an assist trophy.
I unfortunately had this spoiled for me, but the last character reveal:Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - King K. Rool Reveal Trailer
He has his regular king costume as he appears in most everything and then his pirate costume from DKC2.
I think they did an amazing job on his appearance and his moveset.
I believe that is his Final Smash when he goes into the tower from DK64.
That's probably it for major new characters. They may still have some echo characters, probably Dixie considering K. Rool has his DKC2 costume which is from the first game she appeared in.
Not revealed in the Direct is image related. SU Limited Edition which comes with a GC controller with the new logo and a GC adapter for the Switch. Both are buyable stand alone.
