While we're obviously going to get a newcomer and such, I'm super hyped for the inevitable amount of gameplay we're going to get. Best case scenario we're going to get a full match.

I JUST NOTICED IT'S A SMASH CENTERED DIRECT

Also episode 3 of The Wolf Among Us comes out the 8th too if anyone cares. My hype has reached intolerable levels.

Hopefully this means the release date is a little closer than we suspected.

Updated the OP with a link to the US Direct, which starts on April 8th, at 3pm PST.

I also sticky-ed this thread.

Holy crap. I'm so excited haha.

10 bucks says they reveal one newcomer and spend the rest of the video talking about the changes to previously announced veterans.

...which would still be awesome, btw.

There is absolutely nothing that will stop me from watching this Direct right when it airs. Been waiting for something like this since Directs began. :grin:

We can get so much...

But will we get so little? Please give us some juicy bits. They've gassed up the Hype Train... now don't stop us at Disappointment Central Station.

Possibilities are endless.... but the results will be finite. Everyone... pray for good news. Not some release of silly news and info... (like the last direct before Pokemon X & Y where nothing of importance was said.)

An entire Nintendo Direct focused exclusively on Smash Bros 4? I'm really excited.

the sakurai tweet: https://twitter.com/Sora_Sakurai

google translate:
"And say Nintendo Direct, announced suddenly, airing it, but is often suddenly. This time, I tried to have a little room.
The "Smash Bros." official Twitter also (@ SmashBrosJP), people of launch! Medium from today It is not me, but thank you also here."

I don't know what we could possibly see in this direct character-wise... but if I had to take a guess, I'd say it'll be "SHOWTIME"

Well, guys, there's a button for the direct plastered on the Smash website now. Obviously, this is a given, but it just raises the hype for me.

We're guaranteed to get a newcomer, but it's possible that we'll get even more. I literally can't contain myself. Call help.

I'm psyched we'll actually be seeing some gameplay that's not just quick cuts like in the newcomer trailers. At least I assume we will.

They're going to have to fill the time some how.

So, I'm going to be in class during this direct... and I won't be home until a few hours later. I'm probably the only American who is going to say this, but I really wish they'd done this direct in Japan time so I could just watch in the middle of the night.

Either way, I think the release date is the main thing we're likely to get here. We have a lot of organizing to do to make the game launch go smoothly and benefit the community to the maximum extent, and we can start on that as soon as we have a date. Expect to hear an awful lot from me on Wednesday.
