Days earlier, Super Smash Bros. fans got an announcement of a new Nintendo Direct primarily focused on Ultimate.
Here's the breakdown of all the new additions if you missed the livestream. Finally, King K.Rool from Donkey Kong will also be part of the character roster. Nintendo and series creator Masahiro Sakurai managed to pack a lot into its relatively short running time, covering everything from new stages and characters to new assist trophies and game modes.
From there we also got to see New Donk City Hall in motion for the first time, taking fighters on a ride up the tallest building in town. Could there perhaps still be hope for him as a playable fighter? He'll utilize a blunderbuss to fire cannonballs at unsuspecting enemies, and throw his crown as a projectile. Ultimate character announcement, however. Ultimate will come with a Nintendo Switch-compatible GameCube controller.

Previously it was suggested that despite including every character from the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate have move sets based on other fighters, but a different visual appearance.
Dark Samus of the Metroid Prime series will be an echo fighter as well. Echo fighters can be displayed as separate fighters on the character select screen or stacked on top of the character they are echoing. It's up to players to decide how they want them displayed.

Scott Barrett's late try sealed the Lions fate and underlined just how hard it is nowadays for sides to win in New Zealand. After repeated infringements, All Blacks centre Ryan Crotty was sent to the sinbin in the 67th minute for cynical play.
Simon's signature stage is Dracula's Castle, which includes cameos from all the series' most iconic bosses, including, naturally enough, Dracula himself. Players will have 28 hours worth of music tracks to pick from, but you won't be able to play just any theme music on any stage.
While we probably could have grouped Training mode in with the rest of the other game modes, it definitely deserves its own mention.

Tourney Mode - Exactly what it sounds like - play through tournaments with up to 32 players! No price has been revealed for the Smash Bros. In a pretty graphic moment (for a Nintendo game, at least), Death slices through Luigi before the Mario brother's ghost leaves his body.
