Nintendo just murdered Luigi during a livestream about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Killing beloved characters is the point of Smash Bros., after all, and Nintendo took the opportunity to add two more to the list: Simon and Richter Belmont, stars of the Castlevania series. Richter is an echo fighter, using the same moves as Simon but with a different skin and some custom animations. They'll both be in the game when it lands on Nintendo Switch on December 7th.

Simon and Richter have their classic weapons, including the Holy Whip, axe, cross, holy water and melee attacks, while their Final Smash is the Grand Cross. Along with the new characters, Dracula's Castle will be a fresh level in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, dubbed the "darkest stage" in the game. Alucard joins the party as an Assist Trophy.

On top of the new Castlevania characters and stages, 34 music tracks from the classic games will make their way to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, pushing the total number of songs past 800. Nintendo is highlighting the music this time around and introducing some interesting new features along the way -- Smash Bros. Ultimate players will be able to create playlists and listen to songs even when the Switch screen is off (and in handheld mode, of course).

Nintendo introduced a few more new characters during today's livestream: King K. Rool, Donkey Kong's crocodile-king foe, will be a playable fighter, while Fire Emblem's Chrom and Metroid's Dark Samus are two new echo characters (for Roy and Samus, respectively).
