Get ready to board the hype train one last time, Smash fans! We’re less than six weeks away from the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Nintendo Switch, but Nintendo isn’t done dropping exciting news about the upcoming fighter yet. Ahead of its release, they’re squeezing in one last Nintendo Direct, and it’s going to be a big one.
This Thursday, November 1st, Nintendo is kicking off a Smash-themed Direct with a whopping 40-minute runtime. For reference, that’s usually about how long Nintendo spends on their E3 Directs, which cover multiple games. So that’s a lot of Smash coverage, especially this close to launch. Just how much do they still have left to reveal?
We’ll all find out the answer to that question together in just two days. The show kicks off at 7:00 AM Pacific / 10:00 AM Eastern. That’s 2:00 PM in the UK and 3:00 PM by Central European Time. All of the exciting announcements will be delivered directly to fans by Smash creator Masahiro Sakurai. Tune in to Gamnesia for live coverage of the whole event!
If you want even more Nintendo goodness, the Direct will be followed by a post-show Nintendo Treehouse: Live presentation, featuring live gameplay of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee, Yoshi’s Crafted World, and Diablo III: Eternal Edition.
