The next character to join the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster is Animal Crossing‘s Isabelle, the player’s endearing assistant. Get ready to take your opponents to town as one of the Animal Crossing series’ most popular characters.

Isabelle fights with the every day tools and items of the Animal Crossing world. Her moves make use of the fishing rod, the net, party poppers, Gyroids, street signs, and more.

Her move set does certainly resemble the Villager’s. They both share the same Final Smash as well as the “Pocket” neutral special, which lets you capture projectiles or items and throw them back at your opponent.

However, Isabelle’s clearly not an Echo fighter. Her other specials and neutral attacks are either different completely or have unique properties from the Villager’s. If anything, Isabelle is like Lucas is to Ness.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available for Nintendo Switch on December 7th.
