The Smash Bros.-focused Nintendo Direct is happening today at 3PM PST. You'll be able to watch it live right here in this news story or at the official Nintendo website.

Will there be any new character reveals? Will we finally get confirmation of any characters from previous games? Stay tuned to this story for any potential character reveals when (and if) they happen!

In the meantime, who do you want to see in the next game? Let us know in the comments below.


  • The Yellow Devil from Mega Man will be a boss character in the Dr. Wily stage.
  • Ridley from Metroid made a brief teasing cameo, implying he will also be a boss in the game.

Returning characters

  • Zero Suit Samus (now with jet boots).
  • Sheik
  • Both Sheik and Zero Suit Samus are standalone characters this time around, and that means you won't be able to switch characters mid-stage if you're playing as Zelda or Samus.
  • Yoshi (and now he stands on two-feet, rather than standing like a dinosaur).
