That's not the only new thing posted on the Smash site.
Everyone brace yourself for April 8th, there's going to be a Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct that day!

Looks like i barely beat you there. Of couse the directs will be the same time, so 8th in NA and EU, and 9th in japan.

Cant wait!

Really nice that we're getting a SSB focused Nintendo Direct. Can't wait to see it!

There has to be a newcomer announced in that one in combination with a new trailer. Or better yet, announced and then showcased by Sakurai himself playing.

I really want some info on either the online mode or some other mode in the game as well.

Looking forward to: No More Heroes: Travis Strikes Again

If there's a newcomer announced in this Direct, which seems pretty likely, who would it be?

Im under the impression that there will beat least 2-3 characters, with one of them being a newcomer, and at least one new stage per version. I can't image that a direct being announced this way so far along in development wouldnt bring us a lot of new info.

@Tsuchinoko: Yeah, especially considering March went by without a single character reveal, I can definitely see a newcomer and a couple of veterans being announced or some other combination. Still, there should be other new stuff too, like more new stages, items, and character moves.

Oh yeah, im sure the main thing will be a gameplay trailer, with plenty of items, stages, some character reveals and other goodies. Im hoping for a little music reveal as well.

Oh, and a release window!

I'm gonna go out on a bit of a limb, here, and say that Chrom and Lucina will both be announced, but Lucina will just be a skin for Marth. They're also going to reveal Falco and/or Wario. Just my guesses.

I predict a lot of veterans being shown off like Captain Falcon, Yoshi, Falco. Also either Magnus or Palutania are going to be announced or maybe Baby Bowser.

I'm going to guess that the Direct will showcase...

  • A summary of some of the things we've seen in the Pics, except we'll see them in motion.
  • A couple character Final Smashes.
  • A couple of veterans with maybe a newcomer (I'm guessing Fire Emblem or Kid Icarus).
  • A 1-minute Free-4-All match. The old Smash Dojo did this at some point in its development.
  • Maybe some footage of modes like Classic mode, etc. (or maybe it's too early for that...)

Not actually expecting all of that. I'm sure the Direct will be good anyway.

I hope they announce a character no one can predict. Like with WiiFit trainer. Love it when that happens.

Seriously, I see some potential there.

Would also be cool if they showed a complete match or two. It's it a whole mini-direct focused on Smash Bros., it should give them a few minutes to set aside for that.

Would also be cool if it was a online fight, that shows how that's going.

I don't think we'll hear anything about the online until really late in development. That's already something that gets set up late in development for games that center around online functionality, like CoD and Battlefield, and Smash is still going to mostly be a local multiplayer game, methinks, even if we use it more often online.

I would also like to suggest that we hope for a tighter release window, like early Fall 2014 or some such?

My guess is that it will be roughly 10 minutes long, and 5 minutes will be filler/giving a history of the franchise. I bet we see 1 or 2 new characters and 2 or 3 veterans. Also, Sakurai hasn't revealed his magic yet as to what is going to make this Smash a different game. Perhaps the customization concept will be explained.

If Nintendo is smart they will release this during the holiday season, so hopefully around that time.

I was going to say that Chrom will probably be revealed, but I think it would make more sense to reveal him on the 19th for the one-year anniversary of Awakening in Japan. I think somebody unexpected will show up this time, but I don't know who. I'm hoping for a real shock again, like Villager or Little Mac.

@2sang I honestly can't tell if you're trolling or if you're just really, REALLY lacking in the hope department. We're getting a Direct based on Smash! Quit bashing everyone's dreams and let the joyful speculation begin!

@CaptainSquid I'd be ok with that, except, you know, there doesn't appear to be anything to fill the gap between now and then. Obviously some stuff will be revealed at E3, but if we aren't getting a release schedule to rival last Fall's, I severely advise an earlier launch than that. Besides, I still have a sneaking suspicion that Winter 2014 will be Zelda territory.

I'm hoping for a new mode / something to set it apart, personally.
