Internet mourns Luigi’s death after brutal Smash Bros. trailer

Toward the end of the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Nintendo Direct, a new mode was teased.

In Smash Bros Ultimate, players will have 103 stages to choose from, which is nearly double the amount found on Smash Bros Wii U. You'll also be able to turn on "stage morphing", which will show the stage switch out with a new one in the middle of a match. Alucard will appear as an assist trophy. 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.

Just as well, we'll see a new batch of Assist Trophies added in Ultimate too. You can swap between them as you like via the characters elect screen. Classic mode, which made its debut way back in the very first Super Smash Bros game for N64, will be returning in Ultimate. While there are new ways to play, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was first revealed, the game promised to feature every character from the series thus far, and yet somehow Luigi was missing.

Watch the entire Smash Bros Nintendo Direct from August 8, 2018 below.

Simon Belmont, the vampire hunter of Castlevania, is joining the roster of Super Smash Bros.

What are you most pumped for with the new Smash? Dark Samus, Chrom, and Richter Belmont will play identically to other characters from their respective games. Though it's fairly simple, it's also quite a bit different from the other two standard modes, which focus on earning points through knock outs. Up until now, each stage had its own music track. If enabled, players can charge their Final Smash Meter over the course of a battle. GameCube controller, and an adapter so you can use the controller (plus any other GameCube controllers you might have) with the Switch. Training mode is even improved, featuring an exclusive stage that features a grid that helps determine the distance and trajectory of abilities and fighter knockback. Among the announcements was that when the game launches on December 7, it will be available in a bundle called Super Smash Bros. Songs are ordered by release when selecting them for stages, and they can also be listened to in the "sounds" menu option by series.
