The Two Castlevania Heroes Will Be Playable in the Upcoming Fighting Game

Simon Belmont & his descendant Richter are both going to be playable fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, according to an official Nintendo stream that was hosted on Wednesday.

Both Castlevania characters will be able to use their signature whips and special items (such as using crosses and holy water).

According to the stream, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will have about 900 music tracks and 34 tracks from the Castlevania games will be included in the game. Players will also be able to create their own playlists, said Nintendo.

Nintendo also announced that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will also have 103 stages and said that many of the stages are “returning favorites”. There’s also going to be a “Stage Morph” option which can cause stages to change mid-match.
