UPDATE: The presentation is over, but we got lots of new information on the Smash Bros. online modes for both 3DS and Wii U, and we learned about several new and returning characters (including newcomer Charizard).
During a Nintendo Direct presentation today, Nintendo revealed the release window for the highly anticipated fighter Super Smash Bros.
- The 3DS version is due Summer 2014
- The Wii U version is coming Winter 2014
No specific reason was given for the release date disparity, though it's probably safe to assume that the more graphically intensive Wii U version would require a slightly longer development period. While there will be some differences between the Wii U and 3DS of the game, the fighter roster will be the same.
Nintendo also confirmed that Smash Bros. would run at 60fps on 3DS, although some assist trophies would be brought down to 30fps.
We'll be following the Smash Bros.-focused presentation live and reporting on breaking stories as they occur, but you can also follow along live via the video above or over on the the official Nintendo site.
