Nintendo announces final two characters of 'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate'

Ken will be acting as an echo fighter for Ryu and Incineroar will be his own character with a boatload of wrestling moves in his arsenal.

Alongside that, a more typical Smash Blog update to the music section brings the Pokémon Sun & Moon wild battle theme to coincide with Incineroar's spot on the card.

One of the major revelations from the Direct was that there are no trophies in the game, unlike all the previous Smash Bros.

Ultimate Nintendo Direct (the final before the game releases) ended with the revelation of an exciting new game mode called "World of Light". It also announced Spirits would replace collectible trophies. It will feature over 103 stages and 900 musical tracks. Game director Masahiro Sakurai said he wants to keep the new adventure mode secret until the game launches. Can you rescue all the other fighters? Ultimate, which features Kirby as the long hero (and true savior, mind you) standing tall after an attack pretty much wipes out all the characters from the game, turning them into Spirits. They also have three different types of abilities in a rock-paper-scissors pattern.

For all things Super Smash Bros. After a pretty epic intro that shows off how Master Hand managed to create his evil army of Smash roster clones, the clip panned to several lovely looking world maps, stat screens and talent trees.

There are some wonderfully obscure ones there, plus Mii Fighter costume sets for the Yiga Clan from Zelda: Breath Of The Wild, Splatoon 2, Ribbon Girl from ARMS, Chibi-Robo, Ray Mk III from Custom Robo, and the Nintendo Labo Robot Kit Toy-Con.
