There weren't a ton of new stages announced today, but we did to see a couple new ones.

After confronting the reality that Luigi's death is now, per lore, a part of Super Smash Bros. And, at long last, Donkey Kong's nemesis, King K. Rool, will be a playable fighter.

The Kremling leader showed up for the first time in Donkey Kong Country, but he may be best remembered for his extensive boss fight in Donkey Kong 64. King K. Rool showed up as a surprise announcement at the end of the Direct presentation, so Sakurai didn't get into any gameplay details for him. These two will make lasting additions to the brawler's giant, yet beloved roster.

Here's some more Super Smash Bros.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate for Nintendo Switch has been all the rage recently. Alucard joins the party as an Assist Trophy. But in Super Smash Bros.

You can choose to turn on a chargeable Smash Ball meter that will unleash weaker final smashes upon filling.

Classic Mode will return, with each combatant having their own set of opponents. The battle on this Super Mario Odyssey stage unfolds around the City Hall skyscraper, going up and down its many floors via floating platform. And since Nintendo Switch can be played anywhere, these tournaments can even take place in unexpected places!

Training will feature an exclusive stage that measures the distance of moves both at low and high health. This is made more exciting by the sheer number of stages available in Ultimate: 103, a number of which appeared in previous Smash titles.
