The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate presentation ended with a final character reveal. King K. Rool, a frequent foe of Donkey Kong, is joining the roster.


Here’s his big debut, which begins with King Dedede trolling Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong.



Details about King K. Rool’s moves have yet to be revealed. (He has not yet been added to the website.)


Here’s the information from Nintendo’s official press release:

“As the beloved villain from all three Donkey Kong Country games on Super NES, King K. Rool joins Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a playable fighter. He attacks with a blunderbuss that can fire cannonballs at opponents, and throws his crown, which acts like a boomerang.”


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will come to the Nintendo Switch on December 7, 2018.
