This game will boast a massive roster comprised of every character seen in the series to date--including Snake and Cloud. Beyond that, Metroid's Ridley is also being introduced as a new character alongside Castlevania's Simon Belmont and Animal Crossing's Isabelle--among many others. Another change of note is support for all Smash Bros. Amiibo figures and the ability to select a stage before choosing characters.
