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.

We heard last year that Game Boy Advance titles would be coming to Virtual Console, and now Nintendo is just about ready to kick that program off. In today's Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata said that we would be seeing the first games launch this April on Virtual Console.

Metroid Fusion (NICE!), Mario and Luigi Super Star Saga, and Yoshi's Island: Super Mario Advance 3 will be among the first titles to hit the service. 

What else should they be pulling from the GBA library?
