We’re looking forward to seeing the game on the show floor.

    Nintendo is doomed!! So many games and only one console? Go home Nintendo, you are drunk and did too much Coke.

    • wasf

      wow , monkeys can write! :D

        did you read what he or she wrote?

          I guess you are a troll too. I’m having a good morning and wanted to see who was awake with me. This is great news!

    • D.M.T

      Those who gave you a downvote dont know that you’re being sarcastic lol

      • gimpcell

        I know. I am really bad at disguising it. I am sure SSB4 will be something I spend hours upon hours playing alone and with friends on the couch, maybe online too.

      Dude, you are the joker… Hahaha… JK…

    • Andreas Sunde

      *two consoles. Don’t forget the 3DS. See, even when drunk, Nintendo still knows what they’re doing.

  • DingoWalley

    I am so excited for the trailer! I wanna see the new Smash really bad! Glad the creator is gonna be there too.

  • Samuel Mungy

    So now they have announced that there will be a trailer at e3. Can someone PLEASE teach me how to skip 5 days.

    • MetroidZero

      Build a time machine…whoa, wait, on second thought, DON’T! I had a friend who was excited for E3 2006– for the trailer of Brawl; he built and went into a time machine, and I have never seen him again. I got a message from him though…through a dream. He told me, “the British were coming.”

      • Mochlum

        Maybe he stole the plans for the TARDIS and all the Doctor Who fans are coming to get revenge. I mean, Doctor Who is British.

        • Link

          I love Dr. Who but im not british……………

          • Mochlum

            Me too, I’m just saying it is most popular in Britain.

      • Linksawakeningisazeldagame

        Maybe he went to E3 2013, and saw Retro Studio’s game. He got so excited he died.

        Seven years is a bit much don’t you think, lol?

    • Illidan Stormrage

      Yeah, contact the Doctor. He currently is not taking calls through the TARDIS phone.

    • Linksawakeningisazeldagame

      Things you could do to skip time (that works)
      1. Sleep
      2. Obsess on the internet
      3. Watch A BUNCH of Anime
      I vote for anime. Try Eden of the East, there is a fat guy named panties in it. No, really.

  • MetroidZero

  • Destiny64 return

    always the same fucking games

    • Cameron

      Someone tried to convince me to sell my 3DS and buy a PS Vita with that argument. It didn’t work, needless to say.

      I didn’t realize game sequels are inherently evil, I better call up Sony and Microsoft and give them the news too..

    • NkoSekirei

      always the same fking troll that bangs a goat

  • SH*TBLOCK

    He stated before he didn’t want to show off the game until it was great enough to show the world, and Nintendo keeps stuff close to the heart until they’re about to release their games. So putting 2 and 2 together, the game is close to finished and we’ll see it on the U by the Holidays.

    IT IS GONNA BE A GREAT HOLIDAY SEASON FOR NINTENDO AND THE WiiU NO MATTER HOW MANY OTHER CONSOLES COME OUT THIS YEAR!!!

    • Levi Johansen

      I’ve got a feeling that releasing it this year would be rushing it.
      I do not want a Smash Bros. that is rushed just to increase Wii U sales.

      But then again, the Wii U is highly capable of recieving updates, unlike the Wii. Soo giving us new characters and stages, fixzing bugs and so on won’t be a problem if it’s needed.

      • howling_wolf1334:[

        Me neither, I dont want to get a Smash Bros that needed to update a lot of stuff…

      • https://twitter.com/Onyzora Ony

        They would delay Pikmin 3 but release Smash Bros unfinished?
        Come on we’re talking about Nintendo. Synonym of “High quality” ;)

        • Levi Johansen

          They have released “unfinished” games before.
          Well, I guess they were finished, but rushed.

          Even Ocarina of Time was rushed at the end, which is why Ganons castle is so small.

          Nintendo has of course never released a bad game, but imagine how much better Ocarina of Time could have been had it not been rushed.

          Same goes for the Wind Waker, they changed some of the ending to complete the game faster.

          Pikmin 3 was delayed because they started making it for Wii, so when they changed platform they found that they had to do alot of changes, that they hadn’t thought about.

          Also they wanted the best graphics possible.

          I think this is the reason for the delay.

          Given the slow sales of the Wii U, I can imagine that they might rush a few games again.

      • Jack5221

        Trust me, that wont happen :) Nintendo will never pull an EA and release a crappy game early full of DLC’s. Nope! Nintendo operates in a very old school kind of way. Back in the NES / SNES / N64 days there was no internet up dates on games or anything like that, so your finished product had to be good to impress the consumer. Like Iwata once said. “We can make a game, or we can make a game right”

      • Rey Hardy

        3DS version will be this holiday season. A Nintendo PR told Investors and the public earlier that “Smash Bros 3DS, coming soon.”

    • Destiny64 return

      the usual games that are repeated … but you are not tired to let you put up your ass?

      • D.M.T

        Says the guy who plays the usual shooting games every year, every gen nonstop.

      • SH*TBLOCK

        Ummm ok, let’s see here TROLL!

        There has been 25 Madden’s in 25 years, going into 9 COD’s since 2000, there is 35 Final Fantasy’s since 1987, over 40 games with Mario in them (from original DK to Mario Kart and his own games) and like over 20 Zelda games counting different consoles and hand-helds from over 30 years, going into 7 Halo’s since 1999 on only 3 console’s (I’m including Xbox1 new one since the new Smash Bros U is coming out on the U as well), and only going into 4 Super Smash Bros games since 1999 on 4 console’s.

        MY POINT BEING GET YOUR SH*T STRAIGHT!

        Companies are going to make games that sell over and over because it makes them money.

        THE THING IS SOME COMPANIES HAVE ABUSED THIS AND BROUGHT THE GAMING COMMUNITY SH*T GAMES WITH MANY ISSUES BY RELEASING THEM TOO QUICKLY JUST TO MAKE A PROFIT…ALA EA AND ACTIVISION TO NAME A FEW…AT LEAST WITH NINTENDO THEY HAVE RELEASED FUN, MEMORABLE, QUALITY GAMES THAT YOU CAN PLAY OVER THE YEARS THAT YOU WANT TO KEEP PLAYING EVEN NOW…

        NINTENDO> then Sony & Microsoft

        • JD

          Tell me, is it a sin to like all three:
          Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft?…

          And good Lord, why bother censoring profanity when you clearly imply it.

          • D.M.T

            It’s not a sin to like all 3 but it is a sin to hate Nintendo :)

      • Christian Schoff

        ENGLISH MOTHA FUCKA! DO YOU SPEAK IT?

    • MTGSWE

      I’m effin hyped now. I think I will explode and I don’t think my wallet or my body will be ready for Smash Bros :D

    • ronin4life

      A video doesn’t have to contain gameplay.
      This isn’t happening this year. It had only started development a year and a half ago… so be patient.

  • Destiny64 return

    mario…. mario…. mario… Always fucking mario

    • Cameron

      CoD, CoD, CoD, always fucking CoD…

      You do know Nintendo makes more than Mario games, right?

    • http://www.facebook.com/benjamin.moberly Benjamin Moberly

      How is Super Smash Bros. a Mario game? It’s just a game that happens to have Mario in it.

      • Revolution5268

        and you have these trolls who go “if it has mario in it, its a mario game”~grumpy voice.

    • Jon

      yeah…. then there is Zelda, Metroid, Pikmin, Smash bros. Wario, Pokemon, Animal Crossing, Sonic…. and other smaller titles. So… where is it all just Mario Mario Mario…or do you just see the Mascot of Nintendo and thinks that all there is…..

  • XelaFury

    I don’t know you guys, but I’m more curious to know if SSB4 will have a Story Mode like the Subspace Emissary in Brawl than knowing which new characters will be in the game (Pac-Man will have a guaranteed spot, for obvious reasons). I hope it does have a Story Mode.

    • Levi Johansen

      Rayman, Megaman, Bomberman, King K-Rool, Little Mac and “Mii”.

      Hoping for more of an RPG-style adventure mode.
      Also the possibility for creating our own campaigns (storys in story-mode) using custom-built stages and the possibility for sharing these on Miiverse.

      Miiverse is getting the option to create our own communities and set up tournaments and such. The future is bright for Nintendo fans!!!

      • Bob Charlie

        Lil’ Mac?! That man beats me :(

    • MujuraNoKamen

      It should do, I know they’ve said SSB4 will have fewer characters than Brawl, other than that I can’t see them taking things away & downsizing for the next game. If they do cut game modes and we end up with a smaller game than Brawl I’d be very surprised – and dissapointed.

      • William Jarael Smith

        I don’t remember them saying that there would be fewer characters than Brawl. I believe they said that they are going to narrow down the inclusion of third party characters in the game. In any case, Smash 4 will be an amazing game, which is something Nintendo needs right now for the Wii U. Which is an awesome system despite what everyone else thinks.

        • MujuraNoKamen

          I heard them say it a while back – unless sit was just a rumour, well even if they did say it then, they might have gone back on that and added loads of characters for SSB4. I hope they include 3rd party characters, Snake and Sonic were great additions to Brawl and a lot of people want Bayonetta in SSB4 and others like Megaman. Anyway, we’ll see in a few days. Damn straight Wii U needs good games right now but to hell with all those doom and gloom articles judging a console a few months after release, before it’s 1st E3 after launch. We know 2 Mario games will appear as will Watch Dogs, WWHD, X etc so I feel pretty confident about Wii U next few months, it’s awesome and people need to give it the time they’ll give to the PS4 and XBone, Wii U is great and will only get better :)

    • Mochlum

      I think it being partially voice-acted would be awesome. (characters like Marth, Snake, Samus, and Sonic could talk, and ones like Mario and Link could stay silent.) I would like less of a combat-based story mode and more of an adventure-based story mode, too.

    • Rey Hardy

      Namco Bandai is making the Campaign mode. So help me god if Pac-Man or Goku is in Smash Bros I will return that game faster then Microsofts stock going down from the Xbox One reveal. The ONLY Namco character that belongs in Smash Bros is Lloyd Irving from Tales Of Symphonia!

      • 00EpicGamer00

        You do realize that Pac-Man is probably going to be in smash bros 4 (I mean it’s pretty obvious, with Namco helping and all). I’m pretty sure they wont put Goku in it, he’s an anime character, not a video game character, it wouldn’t make any sense to add him.

      • Forbsz

        Pac-Man in Smash Bros would probably be the most retarded I’ll ever see if Pac-Man is in it I will not be getting the game how degrading.

    • Forbsz

      If Pac-Man is in it well then that’s just ridiculous if his really going to be in that just degrades the series!

  • Elem187

    “We’re looking forward to seeing the game on the show floor.”

    Uhm, they aren’t putting the game on the show floor… in fact, are we sure its going to be a trailer and not just screenshots? Because the game hasn’t been in development for more than 6 months.

    • Revolution5268

      so far they work on this game since they finish kid icarus.

  • D.M.T

    He’s supposed to be present at E3, especially if Smash Bros. is ready to be shown so this news doesn’t make me any happier then I am already.

    And guys I want you to watch this video below, the guy explains why he believes Nintendo is hated by Sony and Microsoft fanboys. I think he’s 100% correct so please watch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hI_wvLFpoug

    • Destiny64 return

      donkey kong here in the flesh!

  • Kirbyomega

    *nerdgasms* GAH I’VE HAD 2 DREAMS WITH SMASH BROS. 4 ALREADY! I CAN’T WAAIIT!!

    And I know he doesn’t work with Hal anymore but I hope he announces a Kirby game for the Wii u. BUT NOT FOR THE 3DS CAUSE I DONT HAVE ONE!

    • http://www.sega.com/ Sonic the Hedgehog

      You had a dream about Super Smash Bros. twice?
      Was I in it?

      • Kirbyomega

        Unfortunately no. It was mostly about Mewtwo’s new form as a newcomer. And the second was about my friends and I playing with Claus fro Earhbound

    • Andreas Sunde

      Just a bit of friendly advice: get one. From what I’ve read, you can’t get the full Smash Bros. experience with only one version this time.
      Also: way too many awesome games for me to mention.

  • Super Buu

    Good. I’m happy to know Sakurai is doing well. I didn’t expect a trailer. At best, I expected some screenshots from the game but given we’re getting a trailer, it looks like the game is further into development than I previously anticipated.

    • http://www.sega.com/ Sonic the Hedgehog

      Good to keep you happy! Any more candies?

      • Super Buu

        Is that even a question? OM NOM NOM

  • Starfoxguy

    Another reason im gonna be glued to my pc screen.

  • Xavier Lopez Chabelo
  • Sidney Majurie

    So this pretty much confirms Smash Wii U WILL be playable. Why else would Sakurai attend E3? It’s not like he needs to be there for a trailer that will be in the Nintendo Direct. It’s not like he has nothing better to do.

    Remember the game has been in development since Kid Ikarus finished development and I’m sure the dev time has been accelerated due to the largest team ever working on it because of help from Namco. I fully expect this game to be ready by March 2014. I realise I’m alone here :D

    • ronin4life

      I think he attends every year… Pretty sure he was there last year too.

      • Sidney Majurie

        Really? Well there goes my theory :D

  • Johny

    soooo… someone be so kind and unfreeze me when the e3 starts will ya ? thanks

    • NkoSekirei

      u remain frozen till 1000 years passed and u wake up in the future filled with plants and animals and all humans migrate to another planet and u ask ur self how long have i been frozen and u remember that u missed e3 and fall to ur knees and yelled nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!

  • Silent

    Well, time to take out the Master Sword out of the pedestal.

  • Squid

    Trailer? Omg *Faints*

  • Nookling

    If you all remeber back when Brawl was given a trailer, there was not very much gameplay in it. They showed the characters. How they were updated. I think it will be similar with this trailer. Maybe some gameplay but very little as it is early.

  • kevin nun—-

    WAIT Is Samus a girl? Sorry not much of a Metroid Lover.

    • Starfoxguy

      Yes.
