Super Smash Bros 1080p (30)

We hope you’re looking forward to a solid video block of information for the upcoming entries in the much loved Super Smash Bros. series, because Nintendo has announced a brand new Direct presentation specifically for the games.

We opened our email and found the news waiting for us in a brief note. Here it is, in full.

Visit on Tuesday, April 8, at 6 p.m. ET/3 p.m. PT for a Nintendo Direct providing new details on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

That’s right, Nintendo’s planning a lengthy presentation for both versions of the game. We imagine they might introduce a new character or two, show off some special modes, announce a few stages, maybe give this thing a release date and, here’s hoping, a full official name.

I’m tired of writing Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, and I’m sure you’d rather read something else.

What do you think we’ll see next week? While you wait, here’s an enormous gallery of images for you to flip through.
