In total, Smash Bros. And since Nintendo Switch can be played anywhere, these tournaments can even take place in unexpected places! Ultimate will also feature a Classic mode.

Amongst today's avalanche of Super Smash Bros. 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). Not only are the two Belmonts coming to Smash with their vampire-hunting skills and whips, they are bringing with them an Alucard assist trophy and new gothic, Castlevania-inspired stage that features the occasional monster including a the rare appearance of Dracula himself.

Simon Belmont has been one of the most highly requested characters for Smash Bros, though has yet to be introduced to the series as a playable fighter. Castlevania in general has been overlooked by Nintendo, despite Konami property Metal Gear Solid having been featured in Super Smash Bros Brawl with the introduction of Solid Snake.

Stages: Returning favorites with new visuals and tweaks will make up most of the stages in Super Smash Bros. Players will then battle with one character at a time, switching between fighters whenever one is defeated.

The video itself is unlisted, and was uploaded on July 29 to the Smash Bros. channel for embedding in a blog post on smashbros.com on July 31. Dark Samus, Chrom, and Richter Belmont will play identically to other characters from their respective games.

Smashdown: After every battle in Smashdown, the selected characters no longer become available.

There are also many new items making their way to this title, such as the Banana Gun, which fires a single powerful "bullet", and the Rage Blaster, which gets strong as the user receives more damage. There's a new stage exclusive to Training Mode, which features a grid and other visual elements to help players practice and ideal their techniques. Some of these Pokémon include Abra, Solgaleo, Lunala, Mimikyu and the enormous Alolan Exeggutor. Players will battle against each other in a series of matches, but the roster gets smaller with each bout.
