One of the most highly anticipated games of the year, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, is coming out on December 7th for the Switch, leaving us a just a little over a month left before its release. Given this to be the case, Nintendo has announced they’ll be doing one final episode of “Nintendo Direct” centered on the game, set to air on November 1st.
On their official Twitter account, Nintendo tweeted out that on November 1st at 10AM ET, they’ll be broadcasting a 40 minute episode of Nintendo Direct revealing the last few secrets they’re willing to share about Smash Bros. Ultimate before the game gets released in December. Here’s a look at the official post.

As noted in the tweet, the show will be hosted by director Masahiro Sakurai and there will be a post-show Nintendo Treehouse: Live presentation that will contain more information regarding some of Switch’s newest titles. According to IGN, this will include: Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu/Eevee!, Yoshi’s Crafted World, and Diablo III: Eternal Collection.
In the previous Nintendo Direct episode which aired in mid-September, the only Smash-related news we got was that Isabelle from Animal Crossing would be joining the roster of fighters. If you missed that clip, you can check it out below.
At this point, it feels like we know a lot about the new Smash, but given how many secrets existed in previous incarnations of the game, there’s bound to be a lot of stuff that Nintendo might leave for us to discover ourselves. Considering this, it’ll be interesting to see what kind of content will be showcased in this final Smash-centered episode. Hopefully it’s a combination of new characters and a reveal of a new game mode.
Once the episode airs, we’ll be sure to provide you with a rundown of the video. Until then, stay tuned!
