Nintendo reveals Ken and Incineroar for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The final two characters to join the roster!

Ryu's Rival Ken and flaming wrestler Pokemon Incineroar will be joining Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's roster.

The two were revealed as a part of the final Smash Ultimate Direct. Street Fighter's Ken takes the form of an Echo fighter for Ryu, with a similar moveset but adjustments to the visuals and timing of attacks like his hadouken and shoryuken.

Pokemon's Incineroar on the other hand is an entirely new fighter, bringin a range of wreslting-themed moves including an attack that bounces his opponent off the ropes and performs a different move depending on your timing for the attack.

The two mark the final additions (or so we though! Hello Petey Piranha - ed) to Ultimate's roster, bringing the total number of characters up to a staggering 74, though the game will only start with a small selection unlocked - the same as the original N64 game in fact.
