Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Reveals Monster Hunter’s Rathalos As Assist Trophy (VIDEO)

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Reveals Assist Trophies From Monster Hunter, Shovel Knight, And More

Today has been an extremely busy day for Nintendo and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Earlier, during Nintendo Direct, the Big N announced loads of new content that will be coming to the latest entry in the popular brawler series, including new characters Chrom, Dark Samus, Simon Belmont, and King K. Rool.

In addition to the exciting new characters joining the roster, Nintendo also announced that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is also getting loads of new items and Assist Trophies, the former of which include Castlevania’s Death Scythe, Earthbound’s Ramblin’ Evil Mushroom, and several new and returning Pokemon via the game’s Pokeballs. In regards to the latter, new Assist Trophies include Rathalos from the Monster Hunter series, The Moon from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, and Shovel Knight. Check out the epic Rathalos reveal below:

Here are the other newly announced Assist Trophies, courtesy of Nintendo:

For those unfamiliar, Assist Trophies work similarly to Pokeballs, though instead of Pokemon, random Nintendo or other third-party characters come to aid of the player that breaks open the trophy. Assist Trophy characters are randomly selected from the pool when a trophy is broken, though it is important to note that some characters need to be unlocked before they are added to the pool. Assist Trophies for the most part are undamageable, at least they were in Super Smash Bros. 4, though the actions that said trophies take can typically be interrupted or altered should they take enough damage. It will be interesting to see how these new Assist Trophies operate and interact with players in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate arrives for the Nintendo Switch on December 7th, 2018.
