Castlevania’s Simon Belmont And Richter Join Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (VIDEO)

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the biggest title to come from Nintendo this year, so much so that it received its own standalone Nintendo Direct segment today. All new challenges, trophies, and characters will join the the fray including a villainous character from Donkey Kong, more Metroid additions, and a pair of brothers from the macabre, Victorian and narrative-driven series – Castlevania. In fact, welcome Simon and Richter Belmont to the fight.

To make your day right, the Nintendo Direct starts off with none other than the additions of Castlevania. Aside from the Belmont brothers as fighters to join the diverse roster, Alucard will be introduced as an Assist Trophy with  his iconic Crissaegrim sword and vampire abilities. There’s even Dracula’s Castle stage. Check it all out below:

As a matter of fact, the Dracula’s Castle stage will feature cameos from bosses in the Castlevania series such as Medusa and The Creature (aka Frankenstein’s monster) and fleaman. The only thing Nintendo could make better would be to add on Alucard as a fighter, but alas fans can only have so much. Do our needs know no bounds!? It could be a gigantic, cross universe party. More so than it already is.

What do you think of the additions of Simon Belmont and Richter Belmont? Are you sad that a few iconic characters from Castlevania didn’t make it?  Let us know what you think in the comments section below or start a conversation on DFTG Facebook page.
