Watch the Final Super Smash Bros

While plenty of people had foretold of Ken's appearance, the inclusion of Incineroar is a little more left-field, though his pro-wrestling flavoured moveset should be a hit with a certain subset of players.

Kicking off at 7 AM PT/10 AM ET, Nintendo is bringing us a 40 minute Nintendo Direct livestream exclusively about new details for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the company announced that both Ken from Street Fighter and Incineroar from Pokemon will be joining the roster. The pass will cost £22.49/ €24.99, while those that put the money down will get a bonus Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Rex outfit for their Mii Fighter - making it a must buy for me.

There's no firm release dates for the new content - Nintendo stresses they're still being worked on - but there's a general expectation that all five packs will release in the next year. That would be Piranha Plant, the polka-dotted pipe dweller that subsists on a steady diet of clumsy plumbers.

Spirits will replace collectible trophies, will com in different types, such as Primary and Suppport. You can purchase individual Fighter Sets for $5.99 / £5.39 each if you prefer your DLC characters a la carte.

Spirits have a rock, paper, scissors relationship with each other and can be levelled up, evolve into other forms, or combined to form an entirely new spirit - a bit like Shin Megami Tensei. You will have a global smash power ranking for each player, with ones you haven't used yet assumed based on your other scores. You can also play online in co-op pairs, create custom arenas for you and friends, as well as place tokens to watch, fight and wait in queue. Nintendo suggested using a dedicated connection instead of Wifi in order to stay connected due the possibility of getting a quit penalty.

Beyond that there's the return of spectator mode, you can send friendly taunt messages to others, and collect Smash Tags from people you beat. It also announced Smash World which the connects to via the Switch Online app.
