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.
