'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate' Roster Adds Isabelle, New Bundle Announced

Isabelle from the Animal Crossing series is joining Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a brand new playable character.

Announced during the Sept. 13 Nintendo Direct by way of a short movie showing Isabelle in the Mayor's office. She talks to the viewer about how she's happy to see the Mayor (Villager) in the Smash series, but wishes they weren't so busy and that maybe she should be the mayor instead.

Suddenly, Pete arrives to give Isabelle a letter, and when she reads it she's surprised to learn the powers that be want her in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Fans are treated to a short clip of what Isabelle can do in Smash, including throw water from a bucket to intercept attacks, cast a line from a fishing rod to grab airborne opponents and toss them in the air, and plant a rocket in the ground. She also has the ability to float in the air on a balloon to help her get back to the stage.
