Castlevania’s Simon Belmont and Richter Are Joining the Fight in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Castlevania's iconic whip-wielder Simon Belmont is officially bringing the series to the fight this holiday season in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

As one of the most anticipated titles of the holiday season, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is bringing over every character seen so far from the series across its almost 20 year history, and now the next game in the series will also be bringing over some new faces from a legendary series, Castlevania.

During today’s Nintendo Direct for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, series director Masahiro Sakurai revealed that Castlevania‘s iconic protagonist Simon Belmont will be joining the roster as the next fighter for the massive fighting game, alongside Richter, the protagonist from Castlevania: Rondo of Blood that will be an Echo Fighter for Simon.

In addition to the confirmation of Simon and Richter, Nintendo also revealed that more additions from the series will be present in Ultimate, including a new map based on the iconic Dracula’s Castle. Symphony of the Night‘s Alucard will also be entering the fight as a new Assist Trophy for players to wield in battle.

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.
