Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Limited Edition Bundle Announced

Nintendo's Smash Ultimate Direct revealed a group of new fighters and modes for the December 7 release. After stumbling around Dracula's castle terrified, he confronts death itself and is promptly murdered. 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.

That stage is just one of an enormous 103, which is by far the largest in Smash Bros. history. Ultimate, but don't worry if that's too much righteousness for you - King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong Country series is on his way, too.

Chrom from the Fire Emblem series and Dark Samus from Metroid will also be showing up as Echo characters. These two will make lasting additions to the brawler's giant, yet beloved roster.

The controller was widely praised for its comfort and ease of use, which is part of the reason it was available for use in the next Super Smash Bros. game for Wii, Brawl. This includes Sonic's pal Knuckles the Echidna, Zero from Mega Man X, Metal Gear Solid's Gray Fox, Shovel Knight, Krystal the fox from Star Fox Adventures, and most notably, the dragon Rathalos from the Monster Hunter series. There's also a new Stage Morph option where you chose two stages so your match alternates between them during the fight.

Nintendo kicked off its latest Super Smash Bros.

"From Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse, Alucard arrives as an Assist Trophy in Super #SmashBrosUltimate!"

Russian Federation appoints action star Steven Seagal as special envoy to US
Seagal has been accused by many women over the years, including Jenny McCarthy, Portia de Rossi, and Rachel Grant, to name a few. According to Seagal's own website, the 66-year-old has been a regular visitor to Russian Federation for over a decade.

What are you most pumped for with the new Smash?

Simon and Richter Belmont stake their claim on Smash Bros.

Classic Mode will return, with each combatant having their own set of opponents. There are sub sections for both Pokémon and Assist Trophies.

Stamina Battle: In addition to Time Battle and Stock Battle, Stamina Battle is also one of the standard modes in Super Smash Bros. It's ensuing Final Smash is not as strong as the one from the Smash Ball.

Nintendo and Microsoft seem to have a fairly healthy relationship at the time of this writing, with cross-play between the Switch and Xbox One, and the companies publicly supporting one another on social media platforms. Ultimate's Training mode will come with a grid overlay, allowing you to easily determine ranges on abilities.
