With the excitement surrounding the Nintendo Direct today at 5pm EST, many people were hoping we would see an official announcement in regards to the release date for the game. Unfortunately that won’t be happening, as confirmed by a tweet from Nintendo of Japan. Nintendo of America later mirrored the sentiment, saying that Nintendo hopes everyone is excited to learn about the launch window.
We hope you’ll tune in to learn about the launch window for the next #SmashBros., and much more! (2/2)

A launch window means we’ll likely know what quarter Nintendo plans on launching the game in, but not the specific month or even the date. Don’t be too disappointed when the Direct airs, since we knew a date wasn’t coming. What do you want to see most from the Direct this afternoon?
