Also a bunch of assist characters was announced and also stage exclusive “bosses” that appear when certain requirements are met. Like Dracula from Castlevania is one of them, that might appear and make the fight harder. But he will only appear on the Castlevania theme stage.
And when talking about stages there will a whole lot of them, not including Battlefield, Final Destination and Big-Battlefield the total of stages is 100. All redone to fit the game with upgraded visuals, except for the classic stages that they have wanted to keep a classic look to it.
