Nintendo revealed today that a special Super Smash Bros. Presentation will air on June 14th at 7:40 PT. The special event for Super Smash Bros. is happening before Nintendo’s big digital event on Tuesday.
The timing of this is not coincidental, as that’s the day that Lucas will be brought into the game via purchasable DLC. Also, a new Miiverse stage will be added to the game, along with specialized Mii Fighter costumes modeled after Splatoon and the Inklings.
However, if one were to speculate — and we’re fans, so we do that a lot — there could be a different motive for this presentation. Primarily, this could be the first chance for Nintendo to reveal some of the “winners” for the Super Smash Bros. poll that’s been taking place. In case you forgot, Nintendo opened the gates for fans to nominate characters they’d like to have put in the game as DLC. The interesting part was that the poll would be open until October, raising speculation as to when we might get the reveal of the first fan-voted character. With an entire presentation be dedicated to the game, it’d be very odd if something wasn’t revealed in regards to the poll.
We’ll be here to report what happens, so stay tuned!
