The latest September Nintendo Direct has now confirmed Animal Crossing’s Isabelle in Smash Bros Ultimate!
While many expected Isabelle to appear as a Smash Bros Ultimate Echo Fighter for Villager, it turns out she’s a brand new fighter with her own unique move set.
While not much was shown in the video, some of Isabelle’s moves involve a fishing rod, pom poms, plant pot and watering can. You can see Isabelle’s announcement trailer in the Nintendo Direct video below.
You can also see Isabelle’s fighter page on the Super Smash Bros Ultimate website.
Animal Crossing is Coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019
In addition to announcing Animal Crossing’s Isabelle in Smash Bros Ultimate, Nintendo also announced a new Animal Crossing game.
Not many details are known yet, but a short clip with Tom Nook reveals that Animal Crossing for Switch will get a 2019 release.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate Console Bundle
The Nintendo Direct also revealed a new Super Smash Bros Ultimate Nintendo Switch Bundle.
The bundle features a Nintendo Switch console with a specially designed dock, pro controller, and download code for Smash Bros Ultimate.
The bundle will be available from November 2nd. You can pre-order from later today.
Many fans will likely feel let down by the announcement of Isabelle. Many previous hints pointed towards the inclusion of Skull Kid or Golden Sun’s Isaac in Smash Bros Ultimate. However, chances are we’ll see many new characters revealed before the release.
Previous leaks suggest that Skull Kid, Isaac, Incineroar, Shadow the Hedgehog, and Ken from Street Fighter are all likely inclusions.

Luigi’s Mansion 3, Mega Man 11, Pokemon: Let’s Go, and Yoshi’s Crafted World are just a few of the Nintendo Switch Games.
