Nintendo's biggest tournament game of the holiday, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, arrives in December, but before then, the company gives fans a final in-depth look at star-studded brawler with a special Super Smash Bros.-focused Nintendo Direct. The broadcast will move on Thursday, November 1 at 7:00 pm PT / 10 AM ET and will contain lots of new details about the game so you will not miss it.
The presentation will be streamed on Nintendo's website, YouTube and Twitch channels. You will also be able to view it on GameSpot via the embed below, so you can bookmark this page and return when the presentation begins. Immediately after Direct, Nintendo will also broadcast a Treehouse live stream that will contain additional play of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as well as other upcoming Nintendo Switch games like Diablo III: Eternal Edition, Yoshi's Crafted World and Pokemon: Let's go Pikachu and let's go Eevee.
As usual, Nintendo has not provided any specific details about what fans will see during the Smash broadcast, but it seems as if it will be a big one. The Direct is scheduled to run for about 40 minutes ̵
The last time Nintendo sent a presentation dedicated to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the company presented five new playable characters: Simon and Richter Belmont from Castlevania; the new Echo Fighters Chrom and Dark Samus; and the often wanted King K. Rool from Donkey Kong Country. The following month in the September presentation, Nintendo presented that Animal Crossing's Isabelle also joined the Smash list. It is unclear how many more playable characters left, but over 70 have been announced to date. You can see all that can be played in our full list of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches for Turn on December 7th. Prior to that, Nintendo resolves a Smash Bros Ultimate Switch package on November 2nd. It contains a digital copy of the game (which can not be played until the release date) along with a Smash Bros. theme dock and Joy-Cons.
