Next #SmashBrosUltimate Direct coming this Thursday, November 1st at 10:00 A.M. EST!

The river of speculation through the Smash Bros community is about to cease its flow this week, as Nintendo has just dropped a piece of news that many have been yearning for.

It was initially predicted here by GamingINTEL that the next Direct, which will indeed be geared primarily towards the upcoming Smash Bros Ultimate, would occur on the week of November 5-12…but much to the community’s relief, it will occur earlier than predicted, and will apparently last for around forty minutes.

Mark your calendars for this Thursday, because the next Nintendo Direct goes live at 10:00 A.M. Eastern Time. Furthermore, it will be followed by a Nintendo Treehouse Live presentation where gameplay for multiple Nintendo titles, Smash Ultimate included, will be showcased.

This next Direct marks what is perhaps the longest lasting showcase for the latest addition to the Super Smash Bros family. The previous Smash-centric Direct, which took place on August 8th, lasted for slightly over half that amount of time - 26 minutes, to be exact.

A miniature reveal for Smash Ultimate’s next newcomer would follow the August Direct a month later in September, at which point Isabelle from Animal Crossing was unveiled as the next playable character. Skip to around the 34:50 mark in the next video to see her reveal!

The upcoming Direct in November will also be the final one for Smash Ultimate before it is officially released for the Nintendo Switch platform on December 7, 2018. As such, expect all the stops to be pulled out in terms of content reveals!

As with previous Directs, the next one will be live-streamed through Nintendo’s social media, including their YouTube and www.nintendo.com. Follow their pages and make sure you’re at your laptops and/or phones when the big event kicks off!
