Also check out Chrom, Dark Samus, and Ridley
Although Nintendo doesn’t have an official Gamescom conference or a massive presence at the show, they are taking advantage of the news cycle this week, showcasing a bunch of indies in a recent showcase and naturally, more drip-fed Smashfootage.
The main event is easily King K. Rool versus Solid Snake, the matchup that no one could have predicted. As a result of the “Ultimate” moniker Solid Snake is returning after a one-game hiatus, and King K. Rool, as many of you know, was just recently revealed and somehow stole the thunder from a dual Simon Belmont/Richter announcement.
Nintendo is also giving us a look at Chrom and Dark Samus, which were shown off during the same blowout Direct, as well as more footage of Ridley. Each bout is only a couple of minutes long. We have roughly four months to go untilSuper Smash Bros. Ultimate arrives, and at this point I think most of us could accept the game as-is.
