Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Nintendo Direct Live Stream this Thursday

The retail leaks from Nintendo’s upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U game are started to steal some of Mario’s thunder. As such, Nintendo has announced a Super Smash Bros. for Wii U dedicated Nintendo Direct is coming this Thursday, October 23 at 6pm EST / 3pm PST.

We already know the entire roster for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U thanks to the 3DS version. Or do we? The Wii U version is technologically capable of including more characters and it wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility that Nintendo has held back a secret or two.

In fact, Nintendo is promising 50 “new” things about the game will be revealed via the Nintendo Direct. Some of these I’m sure we know from the retail links such as the return of the level creator. Others were hinted at on social media like taking humorous pictures with characters and their trophy prizes.

Although Nintendo updated its official website with information about how Amiibo figures will work in the game, there might be more to learn on that front than what’s available on their website.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and the first wave of compatible Amiibo figures arrive in stores on November 21.
