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?
