The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate direct just wrapped up, and a bunch of new assist trophies were confirmed. Assist Trophies are AI fighters who can be summoned to help you in a battle, who can attack enemies or cause other effects for a short period before leaving.
A list of the new Assist Trophies announced today can be found below:
- Zero – Mega Man X
- Knuckles – Sonic The Hedgehog
- Klaptrap – Donkey Kong Country
- Kapp’n – Animal Crossing
- Chef Kawasaki – Kirby
- Gray Fox – Metal Gear Solid
- Nikki – Flipnote
- Shovel Knight – Shovel Knight
- The Moon – The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask
- Rathalos – Monster Hunter Series
The Rathalos Assist Trophy is unique, capable of spawning as a boss in the Monster Hunter stage in the game.
That Monster Hunter stage is just one of 103 stages in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. On top of that, the direct today also revealed that Simon and Richter Belmont from the Castlevania series will be joining the roster of fighters.
I am a lover of story-driven experiences, such as Life is Strange. As a keen PlayStation fan, I spend too much of my time collecting Trophies for no discernable reason. The moments where I am not wasting time on a trophy hunt are spent sharing my enthusiasm for games through writing.
