Nintendo has at last announced an Animal Crossing game for Switch. It's coming in 2019.
During tonight's Nintendo Direct, the company also confirmed series mascot Isabelle - your doggy secretary - will be playable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Woof!
Up until now, Animal Crossing has only been represented in Nintendo's big crossover brawler by Villager, the generic player character. He (or she) debuted in Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.
Last week, Nintendo stunned the world by killing off Luigi during its Super Smash Bros. Direct. Now, some fans think the shock death of Mario's brother was actually a clue pointing to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's under-wraps secret mode.
Nintendo just wrapped up a Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Direct where it went into more detail on its big fighter, confirming the Castlevania crossover that introduces Simon Belmont as a new fighter plus plenty more.
Belmont, who made his debut on Nintendo hardware back in 1987, will wield his whip as a signature item and the Grand Cross forming his Final Smash, and his echo fighter - a character with a similar moveset but a different skin - will be none other than Richter Belmont, from Rondo of Blood amongst other Castlevania games.
Belmont will also have his own stage, Dracula's Castle, which features cameos from the vampire himself. It'll be one of 103 stages in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which is an all-in bundle of everything that's ever featured in the series and plenty more besides.
Nintendo's just announced that a new Direct will air later this week, with the focus firmly on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as new information on the forthcoming Switch title is revealed.
First off, the GameCube controller is the best controller Nintendo's ever made (sorry, N64!). Mine put up with hundreds of hours of SoulCalibur 2 button-mashing and it never broke sweat. And while I never played Smash Bros., I know one of the reasons Melee is still so popular today is because of the GameCube controller.

It's hard to imagine Super Smash Bros. Ultimate being the final entry in Nintendo's ridiculously popular fighting series, but it's also hard to imagine what else Nintendo could now do to better it. Without any need to reinvent itself, what else can Smash do but simply get bigger?
Following the earth-rending megaton that was Ridley's reveal as a playable character in the upcoming Super Smash Bros Ultimate for Switch, Nintendo has announced that he'll be getting his own amiibo too.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the name of the game's new series entry for Nintendo Switch. It contains fan-favourite request Ridley, from Metroid, for the first time. And it will include support for the fan-favourite GameCube controller.
I hope you like Smash! All the news as it happened.
