During today's Nintendo Direct, we learned of several new fighters coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. With that news coming out, Nintendo displayed a huge, panoramic character illustration showcasing the massive roster of fighters in the crossover title.

It only flashed on the screen for a few moments after it was updated with the additions of Chrom, Dark Samus, Simon Belmont, Richter Belmont, and King K. Rool, and even when it was on screen, it wasn't in very high resolution.

During today's Nintendo Direct focused on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, series director Masahiro Sakurai went over several details. One of the most impressive details involved how many stages this massive version of Nintendo's crossover fighter will contain.

According to Sakurai, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate features 103 distinct stages. Each stage can be transformed into Battlefield and Omega forms, and every stage can be used in 8-player battles. In addition, all stages are available from the very beginning, so you don't need to unlock them.

Players can also toggle whether they want stage hazards to be active during any given battle. In addition, if you select the "Stage Morph" option before a battle, you can select two stages that the battlefield will transform between over the course of the fight.

Shovel Knight, Rathalos, And More Debut As Assist Trophies In Smash Bros. Ultimate

Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai showed off a few more assist trophies in today's Direct, confirming some new crossovers for the game and also a few new trophies from Nintendo's history.

Assist trophies are basically non-playable fighters that can be summoned into battle. When a player grabs one, it summons an AI-controlled fighter who can be attacked and knocked out for points by other players, but also performs their own attacks. In the E3 Direct, Assist Trophies like the returning Waluigi were shown off, but also new crossovers like Hudson's Bomberman.

Blizzard Says Multiple Diablo Projects Are In The Works

Overwatch and World of Warcraft may be getting most of the attention these days, between summer events and upcoming expansions, but that doesn't mean that Blizzard has forgotten about one of its other big names. A new tweet from the company teases that the studio has multiple Diablo projects in the works, and that additional details could be coming by the end of the year.

In the short video below, associate community manager Brandy Camel talks briefly about Diablo III's current season, before saying that more projects are in the works – adding that some of them are going to take longer than others.

Late last year, the studio posted a job listing for what they were calling "a new, unannounced Diablo project," and tweeted out what was initially believed to be a tease of a Nintendo Switch port of Diablo III.
