E3 Nintendo Direct Countdown
After two years of near-complete silence since Super Smash Bros. 4’s announcement, Nintendo is finally ready to unveil the much anticipated game next week. Nintendo has set up an official E3 website which hosts a few teases about non-Smash Bros. titles, as well as a countdown clock to the all important Nintendo Direct taking place on June 11th, at 7 a.m. PST. This Nintendo Direct is expected to act as the main showcase for all of Nintendo’s major new announcements, since Nintendo announced two months ago that they would not be holding a traditional press conference at E3 2013. Furthermore, Nintendo has confirmed in recent press releases that Super Smash Bros. news is on schedule for an E3 showcase, which means this E3 will not be a disappointing repeat of last year’s show where Smash Bros. was not seen at all.
In the days leading up to E3, numerous rumors have arisen regarding the upcoming roster for Super Smash Bros. 4. Considering how tight of a lid Nintendo keeps on their games in-development, it is best to not put faith into any list and simply wait for the big day (With big hopes of Mega Man popping up, of course!).
