Nintendo has taken to their 'Nintendo Versus' Twitter page to announce that there will be a Nintendo Direct featured around the upcoming next installment into the Super Smash Bros. franchise, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

The official Nintendo Versus account has revealed that on August 8th at 7AM PT, fans of the Super Smash Bros. series will have more details revealed to them regarding the upcoming release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It is possible that throughout this very unique Nintendo Direct we could have a new fighter revealed to us. The Nintendo Direct that was held in March this year teased Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the title was then officially revealed at E3 2018.

According to the Twitter post, the livestream will be hosted by none of then the Super Smash Bros. Director Masahiro Sakurai. Throughout this livestream we will most likely have the fundamental game mechanics explained to us and the rest of the changes that have been added to the new game. I'm assuming that Sakurai will be addressing the speed of the game as that has been a massive topic of discussion amongst the Smash community. The livesteam could also shed some light towards how many new characters will be included within the initial fighting roster, rumors have pointed towards the following possibilities: King K. Rool, Paper Mario, Simon Belmont and also Waluigi.

Jak's love for technology, and, more specifically, PC gaming, began at 10 years old. It was the day his dad showed him how to play Age of Empires on an old Compaq PC. Ever since that day, Jak fell in love with games and the progression of the technology industry in all its forms. Instead of typical FPS, Jak holds a very special spot in his heart for RTS games.
