A New Nintendo Direct Is Coming Next Week

If there’s one thing Nintendo is good at, it’s drip feeding us news on their upcoming games. But for Super Smash Bros., there’s no hiding now, as Nintendo has announced that their next Nintendo Direct will be exclusively about the upcoming games.

The Nintendo Direct will be broadcast on April 8th at 3 pm PT, 6 pm EST., where Nintendo assures us that they “will share new details about Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.” Just that phrase alone is enough to have Smash fans chomping at the bit for any and all news.

What, though, does Nintendo mean by “new details”? Well, it will most likely be the confirmation on new and returning characters, but here’s to hoping that the actual release date will be announced. There hasn’t been an official one given yet, but Nintendo has stated that it will be in 2014.

Meanwhile, mark the time in your region in order to catch the news the moment it drops. If you can’t, then don’t worry. We’ll be providing a comprehensive review of the Nintendo Direct details on Wednesday, so stay tuned.
