King K. Rool Enters the Battle as a New Fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Donkey Kong's archnemesis King K. Rool will be entering the battle as one of the newest additions to the roster in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is set to bring players the series’ most expansive roster of characters ever, and while the fighting lineup is mostly filled up of familiar faces, a new fighter will emerge in the form of the big, bad King K. Rool.

During today’s Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, series director Masahiro Sakurai revealed that King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong Country series will be entering the fray as a new fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

As shown during the Direct, King K. Rool will definitely be a much heavier fighter and while he’ll rely on muscles and strength to get his way to victory, he also has an assortment of quirky moves that should make him an unpredictable force to go up against.

King K. Rool is joining the fight alongside other newcomers that were announced during the Direct, such as Castlevania‘s Simon Belmont and Richter, and new Echo Fighters entering the fray such as Metroid‘s Dark Samus and Fire Emblem‘s Chrom.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will release for Nintendo Switch on December 7th, 2018. If you have yet to pick up a copy of the game, you can head over to Amazon and pre-order the game right now before its release this holiday season.
