My wish: they'd release a playable demo after the direct.

My actual expectation: release date Q4 this year, a couple returning characters, a bombshell new character (either something everyone wants or someone no one would expect), and some talk of game modes and/or the customization (stage builder seems likely to be shown). And, of course, some beautiful gameplay footage.

Feel free to add me on the Nintendo Network: ShadJV

@DestinyMan Yep! I actually managed to find the interview:

He gets asked about 2014's conference at 0:57. He said the format for next years will "be based on what we have and the best way to merchandise all of our activity." So I guess he does open up the possibility that it could happen again.

man.....first time i've scene this interview. it's kinda sad seeing it now knowing how things have turned out.

Basically just going to copy and paste my comment from the news article.

I hope they show off some new gameplay additions or tweaks to the mechanics that actually get me hyped. Because right now all I've seen is Brawl 2.0, which while that's probably enough for a lot of Nintendo fans, it ain't for me. Them bringing in Namco and the fact that it appears they've straight up lifted the Brawl engine, including character models, makes it seem like they just really want to get this game out quickly to their struggling console.

I'm fine with that, because it's like Brawl except addressing the problems with Brawl.

and honestly Nintendo has released far more uncreative sequels far more frequently, I can't get mad at them re-using an engine. That would be like getting mad at EA because the 30 dollar, free DLC Plants vs. Zombie: Garden Warfare kicked me out of a game a couple of times for no reason. ...I-I think your focus should be elsewhere when it comes to this company, just out of principle?

As of now though I haven't seen them address any of my big problems with Brawl, which were a lot of the mechanics. Either removed completely or dumbed down compared to what Melee had done. As well as some tweaks to the core gameplay which I didn't like. Now, one thing I've liked about the series is that the gameplay in all three games is distinctly different, and each time it has changed quite drastically while still maintaining the core gameplay. If this new one is just Brawl with more content and they took out random tripping it isn't going to get me hyped.

Now, I don't know many smash fans personally, but I'd say I'm the biggest smash fan I know. If Nintendo can't get me excited about a Smash Bros. game, then it's no wonder the Wiiu is struggling. Which is why I hope this direct can do so.

Tangent: I personally think Sakurai's talent is wasted on this game. After three games and a set formula, they could have had a lot of people step in for his role. Let him use his creative juices and rework something like he did with Kid Icarus, or better yet have him do something original.

Things to expect:
-A release date for Q2/Q3 2014/delay to 2015 for Wii U version
-A major character reveal like Pac-man, Raiden (which is rumoured, but incredibly unlikely since Kojima has said Sakurai never contacted him about Snake) or Bayonetta, along with several minor ones like Yoshi, <insert Awakening character here> and Captain Falcon
-A new mode, singleplayer
-A new mode, multiplayer
-Details on online

In addition to that, something to make me more interested than I should be at this point.

What if they give us exactly what you expect? Won't you be a little disappointed that you weren't surprised?

My hype for Smash Bros. 4 is Officially OVER 9,000!!!!!! >8D

Though I still got plenty of hype left over for Mario Kart 8, Persona Q, Yarn Yoshi, anddddd Sonic Boom ;D

Did we really need another thread just for this direct? theres nothing that has been said here that couldn't have been talked about on the multiple threads that already exist for the purpose of talking about this game.

There is another thing Smash is besides being a fighting game and that is a kind of Nintendo museum. I'm actually interested in hearing about what they're doing with that aspect of the new games. In Brawl there was demos of a few of their old games as well as the masterpiece section, which listed all the games Nintendo has published. I was thinking it would be cool if in the new games they had trailers for all their games, that you would steadily amass. I remember being disappointed about the masterpieces not having any information about the games besides their release year. Does anyone have any thoughts about how that kind of stuff could get expanded?

Think about this logically, each Sony, Microsoft & Nintendo have a quiet period and no major announcements in these spring months. Each company knows how to hype people up and put them in to anticipation to spend their monies. Super Smash Brothers Direct will give all come Tuesday - release date, Characters and stages. It's been in development long enough and coming this Summer. Nintendo know they have to deliver for their fans.

Iwata is have his life grabbed by the balls so come E3 consdier Zelda U to be announced and bunch of other suprises. His head is on a stick otherwise. Sony will be bringing Uncharted 4, Microsoft yes another Halo.

Nintendo is not doomed, it just has to restratergise and deliver for it's fans. Anyone realise in 2013 Zelda ALBW was announced in April and hardly anything at E3? Nintendo are keeping their ace card up their sleeve this year.

Didn't they already talk about Smash Bros at the two previous E3's? Thats probably why they want to get all the info out before then, so they aren't spending a third E3 talking about it.

I wish that they would have waited to announce the game and show the trailer at e3 2013, so the surprise would have really had a extremely huge impact. (I'm not saying the Smash Bros Wii U E3 2013 trailer wasn't awesome. It was, but I feel that everyone would have gone extremely crazy over it if no one had any prior knowledge of the game.)

I am very excited about this game. (Even though I don't have a Wii U) I just hope that it's not just an slightly improved version of Brawl. For some reason, I think that this direct might announce a delay for this game. If this game is still set for 2014, I predict it will be released in November, or around the holiday season.
