Simon Belmont and King K. Rool join Smash Bros. Ultimate just as Luigi dies…

That’s right folks, two long desired characters are coming to SBU. Konami’s resident Vampire hunting legend Simon Belmont and the bain of the Donkey Kong Crew, King K. Rool.

Although Smash Bros Ultimate’s lead designer Masahiro Sakurai asked players to understand that there wouldn’t be any new characters for the game since it included every character ever featured in the series so far, it seems he was half-truthing the fanbase to make these surprise announcements even more exciting.

The trailers are great as usual with the addition of a surprise slaying of Luigi by the Grim Reaper himself!

One has to wonder with the addition of Simon and the scenes of Luigi with his ghost caching  gear back on from Luigi’s Mansion if these are hits to new games in both series.

More as it comes in.
