Simon Belmont from the Castlevania series is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Nintendo revealed that the much requested Simon Belmont from the Castlevania series is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate upon release. The tactful fighter can you use his chain (similar to Zero Suit Samus with her whip) to hit enemies from longer distance with a powerful punch.
This will be Konami’s second playable character in the Smash Bros. series after Snake originally debuted on Super Smash Bros. Brawl in 2008 and returns once again in Ultimate.
Simon Belmont: Simon’s signature weapon is, of course, his whip, with special attacks true to the Castlevania series, including the axe, cross, holy water and Grand Cross Final Smash. His stage is Dracula’s Castle, with candlesticks that release an item when destroyed. Alucard, the tragic hero from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, appears as an Assist Trophy, lending his cursed steel in battle. Richter Belmont, a descendant of Simon Belmont and the star of his own Castlevania games, also joins the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster as an Echo fighter
