Inadvertent Video Title Change Points To Possible Inclusion Of Simon Belmont In Smash Ultimate

Intern-kun has apparently transferred over from Fire Emblem Heroes.

A reverted change to a video's title may portend an announcement for tomorrow's Smash Ultimate Direct.

A user on the Smash Bros. Reddit page found that a video that demonstrated music from Galaga in Smash Bros. Ultimate was renamed to "Bloody Tears/Monster Dance", two music tracks from the Castlevania series that date back to the original NES entry in the series. Although not confirmed, the inclusion of Simon Belmont as a playable fighter has been heavily rumored in recent weeks.

The video itself is unlisted, and was uploaded on July 29 to the Smash Bros. channel for embedding in a blog post on smashbros.com on July 31. It can be accessed here, though the name was reverted to "Galaga Medley" at about 11:45pm ET.

Smash Bros is now complete to me.  All of my favorite franchises that I grew up with are now represented with a playable character.

I’m really trying to manage my expectations. These rumors are making things difficult. First world problems are problems too.

As long as he doesn't look like he did in Castlevania: Judgement

The good and obvious choice that I didn't really think of.

We'll know soon!
