Nintendo Confirms That Luigi Isn't Dead Following Smash Direct

If you missed it, here's a breakdown of the latest reveals for the new game. We got a total of two completely new, original fighters and several new "echo fighters". 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. Have you been eagerly awaiting this character?

Returning N64 stages will maintain their pixelated retro looks and the Stage Morph option will allow you to pick two stages to change between midmatch. When it comes to choosing music, the library you have available will be tied to the stage and the franchise it comes from. The son of Dracula will appear as a particularly fearsome Assist Trophy, attacking in his normal dhampir form as well as turning into mist or a swarm of bats.

Assist Trophies: Of course, a new whack of Assist Trophies were announced, including Zero (Mega Man X), Knuckles (Sonic), Krystal (Star Fox), Klaptrap (Donkey Kong Country), Kapp'n (Animal Crossing), Chef Kawasaki (Kirby), Gray Fox (Metal Gear Solid), Nikki (Swapnote), Shovel Knight, Rathalos (Monster Hunter), and the damn Moon from Majora's Mask!

We already knew that Super Smash Bros Ultimate would be one of the largest cross-over events in gaming history. Ultimate? Could it maybe be the "streamlined way to unlock fighters" that Sakurai mentioned at E3?

Stamina Battle is also returning, taking its place alongside Time Battle and Stock Battle as one of Ultimate's standard game modes. His Final Smash is the Grand Cross, which locks an opponent in an explosive coffin.

Tourney Mode - Exactly what it sounds like - play through tournaments with up to 32 players! This single-player mode is pretty straightforward, as it simply challenges players to fight through a line up of different characters, culminating with a fight against Master Hand (or at least that's the way it's worked in previous games). Ultimate includes an exclusive stage that features a grid, used to help measure the distance and trajectory of special moves and fighter knockback. Ultimate" roster as a playable fighter, Nintendo announced Wednesday during the "Smash"-focused Nintendo Direct, in addition to a swath of other character reveals".

There was a blurred icon on the first page of the main menu, with a goal to be revealed later.

KitGuru Says: The amount of content being thrown into this version of Super Smash Bros is honestly quite astounding.
