One of Nintendo’s oldest franchises appears to be on a collision course with its popular Super Smash Bros. series.
A big secret was reportedly leaked just before a new Nintendo Direct announcement regarding the upcoming Nintendo Super Smash Bros. game. Ultimate.
Music files from the game Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest were recently uploaded apparently in error to the Super Smash Bros. YouTube channel. Ultimate, possibly indicating that the Castlevania franchise will now be incorporated into the next fighting game.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will now allow players to play as Castlevania II characters
Indeed, the Nintendo Direct of August 8 confirmed that Simon and Richter Belmont should be available to play in the video game.
Video game fans on Reddit reportedly first noticed that the Galaga game video had been temporarily renamed Bloody Tears / Monster Dance, which just happens to be two well-known tracks from the 1987 video game Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest.
This development has led many fans to speculate that a Castlevania character will be introduced in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Simon Belmont, the main character of Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest, was rumored to be a fully playable character in the upcoming game for some time.
Prior to the recent Nintendo Direct announcement, no character from the Castlevania series had ever appeared in a Super Smash Bros. game.
A new Castlevania game for Nintendo Switch has also been the subject of rumors in recent months, although no official announcement from Nintendo has been made.
What is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is an upcoming fighting game published by Nintendo and developed by Sora Ltd. and Bandai Namco studios.
Scheduled for release on December 7, 2018, the video game, the fifth in the popular Super Smash Bros. franchise, allows players to play as characters from many Nintendo franchises and battle against each other.
