Monster Hunter's Rathalos is Coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Rathalos sadly isn't a playable character, but it is a boss character and an Assist Trophy.

Nintendo's special Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct presentation revealed plenty for fans to get excited about, including a cool crossover with one of Capcom's biggest franchises. Monster Hunter is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with Rathalos appearing in the game.

Towards the end of the Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Direct the flying beast from Monster Hunter was revealed. Rathalos won't be a playable character, but will appear as a boss character (capable of unleashing fireballs, performing swoop attacks, laying down fire bombs, and more) and as an Assist Trophy.

Watch the video just above and you'll see Rathalos in action, as a boss first and then as an Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It looks pretty cool, right?

Tom started life on a circus in Australia before his family moved to the UK. His love of gaming started soon after, which essentially meant he bought every video game magazine available and worked numerous part-time jobs as a child in order to afford costly N64 games. He created UK site VideoGamer.com, of which he was the Editor for over a decade. He now doesn't like circuses.
