Nintendo kicked off his latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Directly by revealing a brand new character: Simon Belmont from Castlevania series. The new fighter was introduced through a cruel movie trailer, who began with Luigi exploring a dark castle filled with supernatural monsters before being hit by Death (but he's fine). Reaper was then attacked by a mysterious hidden figure that removed the cap to reveal his identity as the legendary vampire hunter.
In the same way as in Konami's classic series, Simon uses many of his signature elements in combat, including his iconic whip. According to director Masahiro Sakurai, Simon's whip is a bit slow and leaves him vulnerable, but it has a longer average range than other warriors and can be controlled freely. Simon can also throw axes and crosses, as well as use sacred waters in battle. His Final Smash, meanwhile, is Grand Cross; "src =" https://static.gamespot.com/uploads/original/1
Simons associated scene is Dracula Castle, as Sakurai notes are the darkest scene in attacking candles around the level will drop items. Iconic Castlevania bosses and enemies like Medusa and Flea Man also appear on stage as Dracula will – although Nintendo holds the conditions that make him a mystery. The scene also has 34 new and classic music tracks .
Simon is not the only Castlevania representative to join Ultimate roster. His descendant, Richter Belmont, will also appear in the game as an Echo Figh ter. He has his own distinct voice, appearance and animations, but his movement is similar to Simon. Another iconic Castlevania protagonist, Alucard, is also featured in Ultimate as an assistant trophy, and his features are inspired by Symphony of the Night.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches for Nintendo Switch on December 7th. We learned a lot of other details about the game during the new live presentation, and watch several other new warriors including Chrom, Dark Samus, and the much sought after King K. Rool from Donkey Kong Country. You can get all the news in our report of all announcements from today's Direct.
