Street Fighter's Ken And Pokémon's Incineroar Confirmed As Smash Bros. Fighters

Two new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighters have joined the roster. Ken from Street Fighter and Incineroar from Pokémon Sun and Moon, the evolved form of Litten, are fighters in the game.

Ken is an echo fighter of Ryu and like his counterpart, he has two final smashes and can use command inputs to accentuate his attacks. He's a little bit faster than Ryu, both in walking and kicking speed. His hadoken also looks different from Ryu's.

 Incineroar is a Pokémon, but he plays like a wrestler. His throw attacks are extra strong for this reason. He also, as a wrestler, does a pose after pulling off successful attacks, but that animation can be cancelled. His third jump is tricky as it launches him up in the air, but also slams him downward so it's very easy to accidentally go off the edge.
