Earlier today, Masahiro Sakurai sent out a tweet saying that new video from the upcoming instalment of the Nintendo all-star fighting franchise will be debuting on June 11. Translation by Kotaku East’s Toshi Nakamura: “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.”
お知らせしておきます。6月11日23時配信のNintendo Directで、新作『スマブラ』の映像が初披露となります。世界同時、ここが初！ お見逃しなく。

That 11pm is probably for Japanese local time zones. Also, it’s worth nothing that Nintendo had already said months ago that the company wouldn’t be saying anything about the next Smash Bros game until E3. Well, that time’s almost upon us. What do you want to see in the new game?
