Simon Belmont coming as new fighter - plus more from today's Direct.

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.
