Here's the breakdown of all the new additions if you missed the livestream.

In Wednesday morning's "Direct" announcement, Sakurai revealed that Simon Belmont and Richter Belmont from the Castlevania series would be featured as playable characters. Castlevania's Simon Belmont and Richter Belmont, Donkey Kong's King K. Rool, and Metroid's Dark Samus will all make their debuts in the Super Smash Bros franchise. Lucard will be an assist trophy, and Dracula is a stage boss for the Dracula's Castle stage. He kicked off the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Could it maybe be the "streamlined way to unlock fighters" that Sakurai mentioned at E3? He attacks with a blunderbuss that can fire cannonballs at opponents, and throws his crown, which acts like a boomerang.

Game director Mashiro Sakurai gave viewers a deep dive into some game modes the new title will have to offer when it launches on December 7 for the Nintendo Switch. But, it looks like there are still some juicy details coming to the surface, like this limited edition Super Smash Bros.

The news comes from Nintendo's UKVS Twitter handle, giving us an image of the retail packaging for the upcoming game bundle.

The leak came about from what seems to be a mix-up with the naming of music files on the official Smash Bros.

Two more echo fighters were announced, the first being fan-favorite Chrom, who will echo Roy from the Fire Emblem series (with some of Ike's moves?). Echo fighters can be separated or stack in the character select menu. When stacked, players can change between them with the press of a button.

We haven't had one of those since The Subspace Emissary in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but there are new stages in the mix as well. We also got a glimpse at the fresh New Donk City Hall stage, which features Mayor Pauline performing "Jump Up, Super Star!" in the background.

Smashdown - Play through the entire Smash Bros. The amount of content that's here, whether it's all of the characters, stages, assist trophies, or even music, borders on absurd. But in Super Smash Bros.

Since the trailer's airing, many fans have been wondering if Nintendo really did kill Luigi, with most assuming this was just a clever form of misdirection in order to introduce the Castlevania crossover characters.

Of course, this is the video game industry, and characters come back from the dead all the time.

New items being added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but it wouldn't be hard to also sneak in a new Switch exclusive Castlevania annoucement as well. Items in the game can be picked up and used offensively and defensively in battle. Some of these Pokémon include Abra, Solgaleo, Lunala, Mimikyu and the enormous Alolan Exeggutor. Shovel Knight is only going to be an assist trophy. Ultimate. Each fighter has a set of stages and opponents that she or he will face. It also further emphasizes how Super Smash Bros. The new Stamina Battle mode has fighters fight until all stamina is lost and there's one fighter left standing. No two final smashes will be able to be unleashed at the same time.

Squad Strike is an interesting new mode that allows players to go head-to-head with groups of fighters instead of just one.

Tourney Mode: Up to 32 players can participate in Tourney mode, making it great for parties or events with a lot of people. GameCube controller, and an adapter so you can use the controller (plus any other GameCube controllers you might have) with the Switch. The training mode now has a grid and displays extensive launch distances.
