Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Adds Chrom And Dark Samus (VIDEO)
Another Nintendo Direct has come and gone, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans are happier for it. The 25-minute event showcased the highly-anticipated Switch title, revealing new features and fighters coming to the game. Among the roster additions unveiled were Chrom and Dark Samus.
Both combatants are known as Echo fighters, meaning they “echo” the abilities of previous characters. It’s rather obvious that Dark Samus is the echo of Samus, but Chrom is actually the echo of Lucina. Each can be seen in the video below:
For those unfamiliar with Echo fighters, here’s more from Nintendo:
“Echo fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate have move sets based on other fighters, but a different visual appearance. In addition to Richter Belmont, two other Echo fighters in the game are Chrom from the Fire Emblem series (Echo fighter for Roy) and Dark Samus from the Metroid games (Echo fighter for Samus).
Echo fighters can be displayed as separate fighters on the character select screen or stacked on top of the character they are echoing. When stacked, players can change between them with the press of a button. It’s up to players to decide how they want them displayed.”
It was also revealed during the Direct that Simon and Richter Belmont and King K. Rool have been added to roster, as well as a bounty of Pokemon that could come in handy during a fight. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is set to launch for the Nintendo Switch on December 7th.
