As recently reported here, Smash Bros Ultimate (opens in new tab) is looking to be the best way to experience the franchise. With a every single character coming back for the new fight, fans have already been going mad over every drop of news. But Nintendo isn’t holding back, bringing new characters King K.Rool from the Donkey Kong games, alongside Simon and Richter Belmont from the Castlevania series. Early opinions praise the idea of bringing together everyone as “a museum for its own franchise” (opens in new tab).
