Masahiro Sakurai, the creator of the much loved Smash Bros. series, has confirmed that the brand new title bound for both the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS will have a premiere trailer during next week’s Nintendo Direct presentation.
Here’s the tweet in question:
お知らせしておきます。6月11日23時配信のNintendo Directで、新作『スマブラ』の映像が初披露となります。世界同時、ここが初！ お見逃しなく。
— 桜井 政博 (@Sora_Sakurai) June 6, 2013
That tweet roughly translates to this:
“I have an announcement. During the June 11th, 2013 Nintendo Direct, we will show the first new Smash Bros. trailer simultaneously worldwide! Don’t miss it.”
We, of course, already knew that the new Smash Bros. would have at least some sort of presence at this year’s E3. However, having Masahiro Sakurai absolutely confirm that we’ll see a brand new trailer for the title during a specific presentation is awesome news for fans.
The aforementioned Nintendo Direct presentation is set to go live on June 11th, 2013 at 7am PT, 10am ET. We’ll be following the presentation and hosting its livestream, so stay tuned.
