Nintendo didn't provide any details regarding what fans can expect from it, though it's possible the company will use the event to announce the results of its public poll where it asked fans what character they wanted to see come to the game as DLC. An exact date for the briefing was not divulged.

The latest DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Bros Wii U and 3DS is Final Fantasy VII character Cloud, who was announced for the game as part of a Nintendo Direct briefing today. In addition, Nintendo has announced that new Final Fantasy Chocobo costumes are coming to the game.

With more than 4 million copies sold, Super Smash Bros. is one of Nintendo's best-selling Wii U games. It has shifted more than 7.3 million copies on 3DS, bringing the game's total to more than 11.3 million.

Let's hope the fans voted in a good character or two so I can get the bad taste of Cloud being in Super Smash Bros. out of my mouth.

@SloganYams: I voted for Krystal. As a staff user, she has potential for variety as opposed to Cloud being another sword user. I would have actually loved to have actual creation tools for the game to create my own characters instead of using Miis that resemble them, though.

@cboye18: You should say anime sword-based characters. There's a small army of them.

@cboye18: Adding Japanese is kinda redundant don't you think?
