Dracula's Castle is a new stage in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It is based on the location of the same name from the Castlevania series, where it is sometimes known as Castlevania or the Castle Dracula. It appears as the home stage of Simon and Richter Belmont, and is described as being the darkest stage in the game. It is also one of the realm settings that players visit in the World of Light story mode.
Within the stage, there are candlesticks that, when attacked, will spawn items for the player to use during battle. Several enemies that have appeared throughout the Castlevania series appear in this stage, including a Mummy, Medusa, the Creature & Flea Man, Death, Carmilla in her mask form, and a Werewolf. Dracula himself appears as a boss, although he only appears under certain conditions. Kid Dracula from the Family Computer parody title and its Game Boy pseudo-sequel also makes an appearance as a shadow.
Players have the option to choose from any of the 34 music tracks from throughout the Castlevania series that can be played in the stage, including classic tracks and new arrangements.
The stage environment was also used as the setting for the Simon Belmont and Richter Belmont reveal trailer, "Vampire Killer". The trailer shows Luigi exploring the castle, equipped with his Poltergust G-00, fighting and running away from Mummies, Medusa, and eventually Death, who strikes Luigi with his scythe, knocking the soul out of his body. It is then that Simon's appearance is revealed, shortly followed by Richter.
