A new Nintendo Direct has hit, kicking off with a slightly disturbing trailer that sees the Grim Reaper take out Luigi. Could Mario’s brother really be dead?
Duh, of course not – this is Nintendo! It also wasn’t the GM, but Castlevania‘s Simon Belmont in disguise. He’s just one of five new characters added to the roster for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, which already includes every character ever – well, every character that has ever appeared in a Smash Bros game.
The other four newbies? They’d be King K Rool of Donkey Kong Country infamy, as well as echo fighters Chrom of Fire Emblem and Dark Samus of Metroid, joining the previously announced Richter Belmont from Castlevania.
These are the key announcements from the Direct, hosted by the game’s director, Masahiro Sakurai. You can watch the entire thing below.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate will hit hard for Nintendo Switch on December 7.
