First up was Castlevania's vampire-hunting Simon Belmont and his brother, Richter.

Smashdown mode is a new mode that removes characters from the selection as they are chosen for battle. How else would he release the items hiding in all the candlesticks lighting Dracula's castle? If they are fighting on a stage from The Legend of Zelda, for example, they can select any music track included from that franchise, including new additions like The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Main Theme. Ultimate, but don't worry if that's too much righteousness for you - King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong Country series is on his way, too. As such, amiibo of Simon and Richter Belmont, King K. Rool, Chrom and Dark Samus will be made available "in the future", according to Nintendo. These two will make lasting additions to the brawler's giant, yet beloved roster.
