I could spend an hour looking at all the new Smash Bros. screenshots

If you haven't yet been to the official Super Smash Bros. website following yesterday's infodump from the all-Smash Nintendo Direct presentation, you're going to want to do so sooner than later. I feel like I've said it many ...

Here are your new character reveals for the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game on Wii U and 3DS -- Pokemon's Greninja and Charizard. Both of them seem to handle without the Pokemon Trainer in tow, and have their own unique...

The online modes for Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS have been revealed, and they sound like a massive step-up from Brawl. Nintendo notes that you can play online with friends and with random people -- but you want a "fas...

Super Smash Bros. 3DS out this summer, Wii U version out in winter

Nintendo has dropped a huge bomb on us at the start of the Smash Bros. flavored direct. The 3DS version will be released this summer, and the Wii U version will be released this winter. Yes, that's months after the 3DS iteration.

Wow! That's one way to get you to buy the game on 3DS. Smash director Sakurai notes that the 3DS version will run at 60fps, even in 3D, but some of the Pokemon will run at 30fps. It looks pretty great so far, but I know more than a few people will be pissed at this development.

[Update: It's over! You can watch the presentation again in the embedded video above.]

We heard your guesses for what'll be announced at this afternoon's Super Smash Bros.-themed Nintendo Direct presentation and I liked what you all had to say. Tingle? That'd be a treat. Shulk? Total crowd-pleaser. There's also hope we'll get a release date and, according to Nintendo, that's officially happening: the game's "launch window" will be announced today.

It won't be long now until we find out that and more, so if you're able, come watch the Nintendo Direct with us as it happens live today at 3:00pm Pacific. We'll post any breakout information here on Destructoid, but consider this your comment thread to go wild in for the time being.

Super Smash Bros. Direct set for Tuesday

We're always wanting Nintendo to divulge more Super Smash Bros. info during its presentations so why not just dedicate one of them to the game? Someone at the company had that same thought -- a Smash-centric Nintendo Direct i...

Site tries to 'reveal' Nester for Smash Bros., nobody falls for it

Solid Snake probably won't appear in the next Super Smash Bros.

Solid Snake, one of two third-party characters from Super Smash Bros. Brawl, isn't likely to make an encore in the upcoming Wii U and 3DS Smash Bros. At least, that's according to his creator. As reported by Go...

Super Smash Bros. Melee returns for EVO 2014

Super Smash Bros. Melee's inclusion in EVO 2014 was far from a sure thing given Nintendo's questionable history with the fighting game tournament, but the organizers' discussions with the company have been fruitful: the fan-f...

WAAAAH! IT'S WALUIGI (ASSIST) TIME IN SMASH BROS!

Some part of me hoped that Waluigi would make a triumphant entrance in the new Smash Bros. as a playable character. But alas, it isn't to be, as he has been confirmed as an assist trophy (again) by director Masahiro...
