It's upon us.

No one has made a thread yet for this so let's talk here.

Will there be a release date?

Delays?

New Characters?

All will be revealed in 25 minutes.

Hoping for a release date.

Besides that.... Nothing, really.

Hoping for release window. New character reveal (meaning veteran or newcomer announcement) and hopefully some talk of features. (online play mentioned?)

Will this also be broadcasted on YouTube? Last time the stream was terrible on the Nintendo page.

Thinking of what new characters could be added and I can only think of Shulk at the moment. I think Shulk can be a good playable character.

Up stands Iwata, clad awkwardly in a kirby costume and holding a giant foam power glove. A hush ascends on the Nintendo massive.

"Please understand....I am very sorry about the lack of releases but please understand these things take time. So I hope you will please understand that Smash Brothers will not be releasing until 2017. This is to fit in the new character, Cranky Kong."

The screen fades to black. Nintendo immediately start attacking COD, as ever in denial of the problem.

Ehhhhh, I'm getting both versions. I'd much rather have the WiiU version come out first though.

"Competitive"(for glory) and "casual"(for fun) mode for online play

Almost all stages have a "Final Stage" form

Reportable players for online play

For glory mode made me lol, I'm surprised they didn't restrict the players to fox as well.

@PhazonBlazer: Wii U version 'delayed' to winter, 3DS in summer. no items, fox only, final destination now legitimized for online, most stages have a final destination form.

"Winter 2014" sounds like PR language, considering this past winter was technically Winter 2014. Does this mean it'll be out in December?

OH SHIT, charizard and greninja are playable. I'm glad they choose Charizard X as the final smash.

Only interesting thing they showed was Smash Run, that looked insanely fun. Luckily I only plan on getting the 3DS version.

Nintendo left wii-u owners out to dry. Smash Bros. on 3ds looks cool though.

@kingjazziephiz:

I knew it was Greninja right when I saw he was building up that water attack that looked like a shuriken.

Game looks AMAZING.

Sakurai just gets it. This direct was literally everything I wanted to see. Just brilliant throughout.. SEE NINTENDO? This is how you get your fans hyped for your games. Get technical, show the game has depth.. Looks like soooo much fun.

So Charizard is seperate now? As is greninja? Or will Sakurai announce some grass starter from another gen later and say all 3 are part of a pokemon trainer?

nice to see ZZS and Sheik are seperate. And I'm glad they removed the worthless chain move from Sheik.

Hah I went with the charizard/greninja combo in Y version.

Good taste sakurai

I like the "For Glory" settings. For me it's the best way to play Smash. Having the option to play for fun is also great. Really glad Zero Suit Samus and Sheik are back in

Greninja looks pretty awesome to use. I didn't really catch much of Charizard, is his moveset like in Brawl? Apparently he'll also be able to transform into his X Mega form.

Anyone that can tell me how the Mega transformations work? I missed that part.

@Desmonic: still I'm kinda pissed for the lack of mega charizard y. I get the X version is edgy and cool with the kids but Y hits like a nuke under the sun

I'll be getting both versions anyway. The roster is heating up, loving the sheer amount of content they're packing into this too

whoever made the decision to have greninja look like Mewtwo at first can just burn. they KNEW we all would rather have mewtwo in the game than stupid ass lucario and greninja.

That was a very good direct, glad to see that Zero Suit Samus and Sheik are back. The characters seem to have a lot more variety in their attacks now and looks like Sakurai is trying to balance things a bit. All in all Smash 4 looks like it will be much improved over Brawl.

Both versions look amazing too.

edit - they missed their chance to announce some new characters too.
