Super Smash Bros Ultimate


Nintendo has announced a new Nintendo Direct focused all on Super Smash Bros Ultimate for this Wednesday, August 8th, at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET.

The announcement came from the Nintendo Versus Twitter account yesterday. The tweet states that the Direct will have “new game information delivered by Masahiro Sakurai.” Masahiro Sakurai is the series creator and has been the director in charge since the series debuted on the N64.


Super Smash Bros Ultimate was first teased back in March during a Nintendo Direct broadcast and then fully revealed in June during E3. At E3, it was confirmed that every fighter from every previous game would be back for Ultimate, making a roster of more than 60. Other information revealed so far includes Metroid’s Ridley finally joining the fight and that GameCube controllers and Amiibo would be supported.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is slated to be out on December 7th for the Nintendo Switch. While you wait, make sure you read our ‘8 Things You Need to Know About Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ feature.
