The addition of new characters to the ever-growing, ever-growing list of fighters in Super Smash Bros . Finally, Franchise contained a character that many people probably did not expect to cut: King K. Rool from the Donkey Kong Country franchise. The big villain made his debut on a Nintendo Direct stream, featuring Kirby's nemesis, King Dedede. His appearance surprised many people, and even the character's original creator intervened to talk about what he thought of King K. Rool making his big, bad debut in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for The Nintendo Switch
According to Nintendo Life, the creator of King K. Rool, former rare designer Steve Mayles, was in fact shocked by his involvement in the game, but he found that he looked cool regardless of it …
The article notes that Mayles really had no idea that Rool would even be in the upcoming Super Smash Bros. Ultimate . The designer had originally worked on Yooka-Laylee at Playtonic Games, which was originally crowdfunded for home consoles and PC. So Mayles was not asked how Rool should be designed for the Nintendo Switch fighting game.
Mayles and the rest of Rare had invented the original Donkey Kong Country with King K. Rool as early as the mid-1990s released for the SNES. The 2D platformer used sprites based on 3D models rasterized for Nintendo's 16-bit console. Although Mayles was surprised by Roal's inclusion in the fighting game, he did not rule out the possibility, since he knew that King K. Rool also appeared as a Mii costume, so he was confident that Rool in Super Smash.
Bros would occur in any property. Mayles also expressed a slight disappointment that he could not work with Nintendo to create the character, but he was still excited about Rool's involvement in the ever-growing list of fighters.
Rool joins a number of other characters included in Nintendo's own IP – such as Ness from Earthbound or Link from The Legend of Zelda – and characters that do not belong to Nintendo's possession – Like Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid and Mega Man from the Capcom Series Mega Man
