Super Smash Bros. creator and incredibly hardworking man Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed that he will be appearing in the Nintendo Direct: E3 2018 Presentation.

We already knew that Super Smash Bros. for Switch is scheduled to appear during the show, but this suggests that we'll be seeing a pleasing amount of details about the game next week. Sakurai's tweet below mentions that it's been a while since he last appeared on a Nintendo Direct (which is very true), and that he will be introducing something this time around.

We're not sure exactly how much involvement Sakurai has had in the creation of this latest Super Smash Bros. title - it was only a few months ago that we heard of his ideas regarding stepping down as a video game director. All we know is that he is definitely involved in some capacity and this appearance will likely play host to the game's true, major reveal.

Are we ready to get the Nintendo E3 hype train up and running? Let us know what you hope to see for Super Smash Bros. at E3 in the comments.
