With each iteration, the Super Smash Bros. franchise continues to be a love letter to video game fans and companies. Now, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is packed with even more references to third-party games. Just days away from its official release, some third-party companies are joining in on the countdown.

Capcom and Konami have posted artwork honoring their inclusions in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Posted on Twitter, Capcom highlighted Rathalos (of Monster Hunter) making it into the franchise, as Mario is prepared to take him down.

As for Konami, it’s Castlevania’s time to shine. Featuring Simon and Richter, they’re helping count down the days to December 7th. Konami also notes in their tweet about Alucard’s addition into the Assist Trophy pool.

Given the amount of spirits, assist trophies, fighters, music, and more, we eagerly await more artwork from companies all around the world that made the cut in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
