Did Nintendo Just Kill Luigi for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?

Ultimate Direct, and, as you would expect, it was jam-packed with exciting info, including the reveal of two debuting characters, as well as new "Echo Fighters", Assist Trophies, stages, modes, and more! But, it looks like there are still some juicy details coming to the surface, like this limited edition Super Smash Bros. The fan-favorite Alucard will also appear as an Assist Trophy. Still, it's worth getting excited over.

Whatever it is, it'll likely get announced soon as the director mentioned there are still more fighters and aspects of Ultimate to dive into. Read on to find out who they are! More than 100 stages will be in the game, but because the popular Battlefield and Omega forms can also be selected for each stage, more than 300 total stages are available right from the start! And, at long last, Donkey Kong's nemesis, King K. Rool, will be a playable fighter. Well that's what makes Ditto's inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Players will also be given the chance to morph into a 2nd character mid-battle.

Many of you may be wondering why Ditto, an iconic Pokemon from the very first Pokemon games, wasn't included in previous Smash Bros. games. Have you been eagerly awaiting this character?

A recent press demo, covered by Japanese video game magazine Famitsu and translated by gaming website Source Gaming, revealed that not every stage from the Super Smash Bros. history will make it to Ultimate, unlike the characters.
