He attacks with a blunderbuss that can fire cannonballs at opponents, and throws his crown, which acts like a boomerang.

Since we mentioned echo fighters, two others are being added based on previously existing characters: Chrom, from the Fire Emblem series, and Dark Samus, from the Metroid series. The kids-turned-squids and sinister Space Pirate are set to be joined in the fray by at least five more new brawlers, as revealed in today's Direct delivering. The classic Pokemon Stadium, Unova Pokemon League, Garden of Hope, Brinstar Depths, Summit, Magicant, Gamer, and Final Destination stages were all confirmed to be returning. This is made more exciting by the sheer number of stages available in Ultimate: 103, a number of which appeared in previous Smash titles.

Simon Belmont, the vampire hunter of Castlevania, is joining the roster of Super Smash Bros. There's also a default tournament mode and more concessions for stamina (HP) mode.
