Four more months until Bayonetta 2.

Looking forward to it.

Hopefully we'll get a newcommer.

Since this is specifically for Smash Bros, I see it being a pretty revealing Direct. I'm not holding my breath for a release date or newcomer, but it's gotta be something...

My guesses
1. More than one character will be revealed; newcomers or veterans
2. New stages, items, and/or character moves
3. Possible release window
I expect it'll be like the Smash Bros. Developer Direct from E3 2013 in which Sakurai went over various details about the games, only this time there could be a few characters announced too.

I wonder myself why they didn't wait for it until E3.
My guess, there will be an E3 Direct again. Too bad.

Because we wanted to wait ANOTHER two months for a Direct? No. Besides, I, for one, rather preferred what Nintendo did last year. I don't get why everyone's taking a stinker all over the idea. It was far more efficient; we got way more info far quicker than either of the other two console developers were able to deliver. They saved money on the whole presentation, since, you know, Nintendo Direct can be made on the cheap compared to a huge friggen press conference that costs a huge premium just to hold, let alone the cost of actually running it. And what'd they use that money on? Putting demos up all across the US for tons of Nintendo fans without the funds to go to E3 to try out the new Nintendo games and get some cool swag. Maybe, this year, it'll spread to Canada, Japan, and Europe, too!

And besides all that. Just because there's a Direct does not suggest there will be no conference. They can do the two side-by-side with little to no real drawbacks, aside from the insane cost the conference is gonna run them.

The UGXloggery ... really needs an update.

I can see two character reveals: Yoshi and a newcomer. I also see the DIrect going over the gameplay modes. A release date would be nice.

If they don't announce Goku for Smash Bros then I'm boycotting this game

That will probably happen. "Mini" Directs have been quite frequent in Japan during the past years, and I believe that all games that has got that kind of coverage has either been very close (=weeks) to release, or a release date has been announced at the Mini Direct.

Current Top 15: Splatoon, MK8, Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3, Terraria for Wii U, Super Mario Maker, Affordable Space Adventures, SM3DW, Yoshi's Woolly World, Twilight Princess:HD, Stealth Inc. 2, LEGO City: Undercover, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, Runbow, Bayonetta 1+2

This is great.... but doesn't this mean that we're not getting a real E3 conference from Nintendo?
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!
People are gonna yell at them if they do it Direct style again

I own a Wii U and 3DS. I also own a PS4!

Apologies for posting this thrice on the site but since there would be no point in rewriting it:

I predict:

-the official title will be revealed (C'mon it CAN'T be "for Wii U/for 3DS" that's just LAME)

-at least 3-4 new characters (it IS a Direct after all)

-details of adventure mode

-some information about online play

-release dates for both versions

-A surprise announcement that will catch us all off guard (it IS Sakurai after all)

I seriously doubt they'll care

I'm personally happy as long as I get my news & trailers. Even if I prefer a full blown conference over a ND.

@Guitardude7

How about Smash Bros. 4 Wii U/3DS? It is the fourth title after all

I love Smash so I know I will like anything they show. I obviously wish they give a release date or window.

I will comment in this thread, never being able to find it again.

Or, maybe the game is coming before E3....sounds crazy but is a posibility.

@sinalefa Y'know I never caught that Pun until now. That actually makes the title more enjoyable. But still I can't help but feel like they should've attempted to be a bit more creative with it :/

So is it only going to be about SSB4? Or are they likely to at least mention other things (upcoming Unity games, future VC games, Xeno, Beyonetta 2, Zelda U., anything else at all)?

I'm not sure how you came to this conclusion, considering they said nothing about revealing Smash Bros info during e3. This most likely means that Smash Bros is coming out in the summer

I'm hoping for multiple character reveals and at least 1 of those characters being a newcomer. I'd rather see what the cusotmization is going to be about because we haven't heard anything about it yet.
