Update: Simon Belmont was revealed for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as part of the 8.8.2018 Nintendo Direct, you can see the Full WrapUp & Video HERE and below remains the unedited version of our rumor for this character reveal which we posted about 7 hours before the show began.
Sora Ltd., Bandai Namco Studios, and Nintendo will soon reveal much more about the upcoming Nintendo Switch exclusive game, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but the public relations and marketing team may have just leaked one of their biggest announcements early.
A Galaga Remix video which was titled incorrectly has been uploaded and then unlisted on the Super Smash Bros. YouTube Channel with the name “Bloody Tears Remix” which is a song from Castlevania. Nintendo changed the title of the video to what it was originally supposed to be. It was a Galaga Remix, but whoever was uploading the videos messed up and accidentally put the Bloody Tears title, since that’s probably supposed to be one of the videos coming out tomorrow. I’d assume after the Nintendo Direct in which a huge, new announcement is made for the Switch exclusive.
This evidence leads us to believe that Simon Belmont is finally going to be confirmed at the Nintendo Direct in just a few hours.
Here’s an image of the leak below:

Masahiro Sakurai is the world famous game director of the Super Smash Bros. series and signed on to the Ultimate project with a goal of bringing back every character that was ever part of the Smash Bros. series. He was going to retire but after Nintendo announced a new Smash Bros. without his permission and then subsequently decided to ask the man if he would be interested in directing it. Of course, the series may live on beyond Sakurai, but for now it is considered his baby. His reputation as a game designer is eternally linked to the game’s progress over the years.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is coming to the Nintendo Switch exclusively on December 7, 2018 and was given a major, in-depth showing at the Nintendo E3 2018 Press Conference. What is impossible today, may become possible in the future. There was a time in which people never expected every Smash character to be in one place at the same time.
