The final two characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate were announced during this morning’s Nintendo Direct, bringing the total number of characters to 74.

Ken is the Echo Fighter for Ryu, as he is similarly in the Street Fighter franchise. His heavy Shoryuken is encased in flames, as it is in his original series, his Hadouken is shaped differently with unique attributes, and he can utilize his own focus attacks. This version of Ken is based on his Street Fighter II Turbo iteration but has tweaks from more recent titles. Ken also has two Final Smash attacks that are activated depending on the player’s distance from his opponent. He’s faster than Ryu, and like his Shoto rival, you can activate unique attacks by implementing certain inputs.

Incineroar, the fully evolved starter Pokémon from the Pokémon Sun and Moon titles, is the last character to be added to the main roster of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. With special moves like Darkest Lariat, Cross Chop, and Revenge along with his Final Smash, Max Malicious Moonsault, this wrestling feline is ready to throw down against the best and bravest Smash players. It will take perfect timing to master the Heel Pokémon, since, like a professional wrestler, Incineroar poses after each successful attack. These poses can be canceled into other attacks or motions, so keep your brains and brawn in sync.

There’s plenty more information coming from the Nintendo Direct so stay tuned for everything there is to know about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before its release on December 7!
