Nintendo’s Smash Direct to Air on December 15


Nintendo recently announced that the Nintendo Direct aimed specifically at Super Smash Bros For 3DS and Wii U will be airing on December 15th at 5 PM EST.

This will be the last direct aimed toward Super Smash Bros For 3DS and Wii U, and will focus on the latest edition to the series, Cloud Strife, as well as the fan voted characters that will be added to the game.

Who are you hoping to see announced at the Smash Direct?

Thanks, Gematsu

    Wonder Red or bust. Anything else is unacceptable.

    I think Wolf is almost a given.

    I’m hoping for Snake, but I don’t think it’s likely.

    I’m probably the only person that would like Pichu.

    Considering Minecraft on Wii U is a thing now, I think Banjo is possible. Not likely, but possible.

    Shantae, Wonder Red, Shovel Knight, Wolf and Snake.

    I can only dream to see Ice Climbers again. ; __ ;

    They’ll hype up adding a popular Microsoft character

    And then it’ll be Master Chief instead of Banjo

    Even Viewtiful Joe?

    Well, technically Banjo has been possible ever since Phil Spencer himself said on Twitter that he’d like to make that happen as well.

    Come on, Bayonetta. Even though her sexuality would be toned down to still make the game rated E10

    Heathen! Shantae is the only acceptable addition.

    How in the world can this be the final direct for smash 4 if it’s focused on cloud but they haven’t even addressed the fan ballot they had going?

    They haven’t said a word about it, they haven’t mentioned results, or who they’ll be adding to the game thanks to it. Was it cloud? Who knows.

    Does this it was just for viral marketing and they never cared about it in the first place? Some people were betting on that so maybe they were right all along.
    Quite a shame if that’s the case, for Nintendo to toy with the fans that way is not cool.

    But regardless of that if it really is the last Smash 4 direct it means no more DLC, which means support for the game is over and Nintendo is moving on.
    With the NX coming out so soon (2016-2017) it makes sense, unless they intend to re-release Smash 4 with improved assets on the NX, the game is done and in the past to Nintendo.

    I just….I….Did all mental functioning just stopped for you or something?

    Cloud AND MORE. AND MORE. Did you just stopped reading after Cloud?! That wasn’t even the end of the sentence!

    These are full-blown DIRECTS. You know, the things that can take up to an HOUR to complete! Did you just thought it would of been 45 minutes of Cloud!? The man can wield a sword the size of a sarcophagus, that doesn’t mean he can carry 45 minutes of pure Smash news!

    OF COURSE they’re gonna mention the ballot! It’s highly unlikely that Cloud was the winner, seeing as they couldn’t make a character AND STAGE in under two months! It’s even more unlikely that it was a publicity stunt, considering the fact that Sakurai outright STATED the winner gets to be a new Smash Character all the way back in JUNE.

    JESUS FUCK does NG got some simpleton Ninty fans and haters. THINK, DAMMIT! THINK!

    Wonder Red. Come on Nintendo, if there was ever a game that needed more exposure on the WiiU that never got it, it’s Wonderful 101.

    I can live with that, even though I said Bayonetta.

    She can still say “Flock off” to Pit and Palutena, so I’m fine with that.

    SEGA: Bayonetta, Akira and NiGHTS.
    Capcom: Viewitiful Joe, Amaterasu and Dante.
    Namco: Luke von Fabre, Heihachi and Klonoa.
    Nintendo: Alexis already said it, but Wolf and Ice Climbers would be nice too.
    Square Enix: Crono.

    Asuka from Senran Kagura or Everybody’s favorite Nepu Nepu.

    It would be great for Scorpion from Mortal Kombat to appear in Smash 4.

    Simon Belmont, but only because I want to recreate Captain N.

    My other top runner would be Bayonetta.
