Nintendo has revealed a bunch of new Assist Trophies for the forthcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Switch, which is due to launch later this year.

The big news here is that Rathalos from the Monster Hunter series will be joining the game not only as an Assist Trophy but as a boss character as well - a first for the Smash Bros. franchise.

Elsewhere, Shovel Knight, Zero from the Mega Man X, Knuckles from Sonic The Hedgehog 3, Krystal from Star Fox Adventures and the evil Moon from The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask all join the Assist Trophy roster.

This is all in addition to the news that Simon and Richter Belmont are playable characters, alongside Chrom, Dark Samus and King K.Rool. All in all, not a bad day for Smash fans.
