Nintendo Not Revealing Smash Bros Release Date During Direct
According to DualShockers, tonight’s Nintendo Direct live stream presentation, that is completely geared towards the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U, will only announce the fighting game’s estimated launch window and will not provide an exact release date. The official Super Smash Bros. Twitter just posted a notice (which was originally in Japanese) about the upcoming Nintendo Direct presentation, and here is its translation:
[Announcement] We’re not in the condition to announce a specific release date yet, but in the broadcast tomorrow we’ll inform you of an approximate release window.
Please note that when Nintendo uses the word “tomorrow” in its Tweet, it is in reference to Japan’s time zone — since Nintendo will be launching the stream at 7AM on April 9 in Japan, this translates to the evening hours of April 8 for North America,
Nintendo of America has Tweeted the following post to corroborate with the official Smash Bros.’s Twitter post.
We hope you’ll tune in to learn about the launch window for the next #SmashBros., and much more! (2/2)

Perhaps we’ll finally get the official subtitle of this Smash Bros. title (such as the previous subtitles of “Brawl” and “Melee”) so we can finally get its full name. In order to keep fans interested and to help promote Wii U sales prior to Super Smash Bros.’ release, we can expect some important, famous characters, both new and old, being added to the roster tonight.
Be sure to check back tonight at 6PM EDT for our coverage of the Smash Bros.-centric Nintendo Direct.
