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.
- Zero Suit Samus (now with jet boots).
- 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).
- Charizard (and did you catch a glimpse of his Mega Evolution form?)
What else happened during the Nintendo Direct?
- We got new details on the game's online modes and an exclusive mode for the 3DS version
- The game has a summer release date on 3DS and winter on Wii U
