We all knew that Nintendo would have to announce a new Super Smash Bros. game at some time but when would it be? E3 2013 proved the perfect opportunity as today's Nintendo Direct closed with a trailer and footage of the game.
In fact, there are two Super Smash Bros. games coming - one for Wii U and one for 3DS. This will be the first time SSB has been on a Nintendo portable. Presumably, both will be out at the same time.
Although not every character could be shown just yet, we did see a few series staples such as Mario, Bowser, and Pikachu, but also saw two newcomers join the fight. They are the boy Villager from Animal Crossing and Mega Man! More characters will be rolled out in the future sometime before the games launch in 2014.
