First new Smash Bros. footage coming in June 11 Nintendo Direct

The new Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS will be revealed to the world in video form on June 11. Nintendo already announced the future of the fighting series would be "discussed" during its next Nintendo Direct, but series designer Masahiro Sakurai tweeted earlier today that we'll get our first look at it, too.

Kotaku translated the message if your Japanese is a bit rusty: "Notice: On the June 11th 11PM Nintendo Direct, the first footage of the new Smash Bros will be aired for the first time. For the first time, simultaneously worldwide! Don't miss it."

(That date and time is referring to the Japanese edition, of course. The U.S. and U.K. versions will air at 7 a.m. PST/3 p.m. BST.)

Nintendo's made each Smash Bros. release into a once-in-a-generation event since the series debuted on N64. What do you want to see in the next franchise-crossing beat down?

    And just like that, the Wii U's sales problems are over.

    Wii U is going to win this generation. It doesn't try to kill used games like the TV box and Numero 4 does

    I hope the PS4 does well in its own right really. I think it will be the premiere console for online play because frankly the Wii U's just really isn't that great. They'll both do well in their own respects, people love online gaming and people also love Nintendo's first party games and the abundance of actual party games. I'll be picking up a PS4 in addition to the Wii U I have, giving both their time, and hoping that everyone has enough brain cells to avoid the Xbone at all costs.

    I can't wait to hear about the differences between each version. I hope it's not too different, as I plan to get a 3DS far before a WiiU.
