      So... Much... WOW!!! CASTLEVANIA! Simon & Richter babae! (basically how I felt during the reveal).
      This direct may be my favourite one during the Smash Ultimate hype train. I enjoyed all of them, but this one still remains on top for me.

                    If you use a random stage in stage morph, is it random each time it switches?

                      It chooses two random stages and switches between them. There are only two stages.

                            Looking back to this Direct, the track selection for Castlevania was huge, but SNK knocked it out of the park with 50 tracks.

                                                Echo fighters are a waste of game space. They are a result of a lack of creativity.

                                                  Echos are a way of add other popular characters without putting that much work on the developers. Also, echo fighters have subtle differences between each other, they have different animations, voices, and even taunts.
