With 700,000+ gamers having purchased Super Smash Bros. for 3DS — and thousands having already entered our free Super Smash Bros. 3DS giveaway — it’s safe to say Super Smash Bros. for Wii U is on Nintendo fans’ radar. For those fans, Nintendo itself is hosting a free Super Smash Bros. Wii U live stream this Thursday to show the game in action.
The Super Smash Bros. Wii U live stream is part of the company’s next Nintendo Direct session. These Nintendo Direct presentations are essentially a “state of the state” for upcoming Nintendo games and hardware. Previous Nintendo Direct live streams have included presentations from Shigeru Miyamoto, Reggie Fils-Aime and others.
This Thursday’s online event will be focused exclusively on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
According to Nintendo, the Super Smash Bros. Wii U live stream will share details “on 50 new things in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.” Fifty is a huge number, so our estimation is that 35 or more will be revelations about new SSB characters, costumes and levels.
It’s highly unlikely that Nintendo will share 50 new gameplay features.
To see the Super Smash Bros. Wii U live stream, head over to this webpage on Thursday, Oct. 23. The Nintendo Direct event begins at 3pm Pacific / 6pm Eastern.
