Nintendo obviously realised their mistake and the audio clip title was changed back to its original name - but thanks to Nintendo Direct we now know all suspicions were actually true.

He'll wield the Vampire Killer, the holy whip first seen in the 1986 NES classic Castlevania, which Sakurai says gives Simon a longer reach than any other fighter. "Mankind ill needs a savior such as you".

Simon's signature stage is Dracula's Castle, which includes cameos from all the series' most iconic bosses, including, naturally enough, Dracula himself.

Assist Trophies: Some of the new Assist Trophies that are joining Super Smash Bros. Both appear as they did in the 1997 PlayStation game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. But just before the presentation ended, we would get a quick look at yet another new character, King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong franchise. Nintendo Direct gave us our first look at the main menu, something that may seem tiresome to many, but something fans have been begging to see so that we could peep the various game modes that will be included. Sakurai didn't go into detail on his abilities, but the trailer showed him using his huge bulk to knock enemies back, along with using his crown and a cannon as projectiles.

Third time unlucky for the Lions - 05-Aug
New Zealand Rugby Chief Executive Steve Tew congratulated the Crusaders on re-claiming the Investec Super Rugby trophy. Last night his side hurt the Lions physically and mentally with their maul defence and ability in the set piece.

Of those reveals, one of the more exciting is the number of stages and stage-related functions coming to Super Smash Bros.

In Wednesday morning's "Direct" announcement, Sakurai revealed that Simon Belmont and Richter Belmont from the Castlevania series would be featured as playable characters. It enables players to select two different stages and move from one to the next mid-fight. After picking up to 32 participants (and how many of those will be CPUs) players are given bracket options that can include standard 1-on-1 battles or 4-on-4 madness with a shorter bracket.

Assist Trophies: Of course, a new whack of Assist Trophies were announced, including Zero (Mega Man X), Knuckles (Sonic), Krystal (Star Fox), Klaptrap (Donkey Kong Country), Kapp'n (Animal Crossing), Chef Kawasaki (Kirby), Gray Fox (Metal Gear Solid), Nikki (Swapnote), Shovel Knight, Rathalos (Monster Hunter), and the damn Moon from Majora's Mask!
