They're not all new, of course - in fact, all the N64 stages will reappear in their old low-poly glory - but many are, including New Donk City Hall. The retro hero will come partnered with his iconic whip, although his look has been slightly altered, and his echo fighter will be Richter Belmont from the same series.

"From Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, Alucard arrives as an Assist Trophy in Super #SmashBrosUltimate!" King K. Rool, a frequent foe of Donkey Kong, is joining the roster. He'll utilize a blunderbuss to fire cannonballs at unsuspecting enemies, and throw his crown as a projectile.

Well, sort of. There are actually only two *brand* new pugilists, plus three extra "Echo" fighters - altered clones of existing characters. The inclusion of Simon and fellow vampire hunter Richter Belmont as playable characters in Ultimate was the first of many reveals packed into the half-hour Direct presentation, hosted by Smash series creator Masahiro Sakurai.

Pokemon Stadium, Garden of Hope, Brinstar Depths, the Summit (Ice Climbers), Unova Pokemon League, Magicant, Gamer (Game and Wario), and Final Destination are returning.

Nintendo will also introduce several new stages, bringing the tally to 103, a stark difference from the 42 offered in the 3DS and Wii U versions.

His wife, Diana Campbell, told PIX 11 , "You could see its little legs just floating and his head was in the water". The Campbell family left around 6 p.m., with Monte Campbell calling the experience "very emotional".

N64 version stages were created to keep the old school style. Well that's what makes Ditto's inclusion in Super Smash Bros. At E3, we learned that all 64 characters from every past game in the series would be returning.

Likewise, the Direct also revealed a new mode called Squad Strike, which pits 5×5 or 3v3 teams against one another in an elimination competition, which can be played either co-operatively with other players taking turns or solo.

In a Super Smash Bros. first, the Stage Morph option will let players seamlessly transition between two different stages. When playing in Handheld mode, music can be played even while the Nintendo Switch screen is turned off, turning the system into its own portable music player.

Phew! I think those are all the big announcements - Nintendo sure knows how to pack a lot of info into half an hour!

Nintendo needed to make up some ground after fans were left aghast following the announcement of Luigi's death.
