We know it's been coming, but we doubt that makes it any less exciting. Nintendo has now confirmed details for the Super Smash Bros. Nintendo Direct - branded as the Final Video Presentation - which should bring huge hype for fans of the Wii U and 3DS entries.

For starters it's all going down on 15th December at 2pm Pacific / 5pm Eastern / 10pm UK and 11pm CET, with Masahiro Sakurai hosting.

One of the biggest reveals of the November Direct was Final Fantasy's Cloud as an upcoming DLC character in the brawling titles, so it's no surprise that he'll feature. Fans are also desperate to learn about the rest of the roster, in particular any remaining winners from the Fighter Ballot that closed earlier in the year.
