assist trophies

A whole heck of a lot more Pokémon and assist trophies are coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as unveiled at today’s Nintendo Direct. Exeggecutor, Abra, Solgaleo, Mimikyu, Pyukumuku, Vulpix, Alolan Vulpix, Marshadow, and Ditto are coming as new Pokémon. Mega Man X‘s Zero, Sonic the Hedgehog‘s Knuckles, Star Fox‘s Krystal, Donkey Kong‘s Klaptrap, Animal Crossing‘s Kapp’n, Kirby‘s Chef Kawasaki, Metal Gear Solid‘s Gray Fox, Nikki, Shovel Knight, and Majora’s Mask‘s Moon are all in the game as assist trophies!

Of all these new names, the ones that make me go wow are Gray Fox and the freakin’ Moon. Gray Fox is so cool, and the Moon is just hilarious.

One more important piece of information is that Rathalos from Monster Hunter is coming–both as a boss and an assist trophy, which is a first for the series.
