Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will release 7 December for Nintendo Switch. Ultimate-themed Nintendo Direct which saw the addition of new fighters to the game's roster such as Chrom from Fire Emblem, Simon Belmont from Castlevania, and King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong series.

Counting game music tracks and other music, like in-game menus and other short musical passages, there are approximately 900 compositions - that's more than 28 hours of video game music! It boasts a number of Gothic enemies to battle, including Dracula himself every "blue moon", as well as Alucard as an assist trophy. You can choose how many human players and CPU participants you want (up to a total of 32 players) and then the game will automatically structure a tournament bracket to accommodate those fighters. Ultimate was renamed to "Bloody Tears/Monster Dance", two music tracks from the Castlevania series that date back to the original NES entry in the series.
