Nintendo will broadcast a new Nintendo Direct presentation on Thursday, Nov. 1, that’s all about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

The next Nintendo Direct — said to be the final Direct presentation focused on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — will start at 10 a.m. EDT/7 a.m. PDT. Nintendo will broadcast on YouTube, Twitch and its Nintendo Direct website.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai will host this week’s Nintendo Direct, where he will deliver “roughly 40 minutes of new information” about the upcoming Nintendo Switch game. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. is coming to Switch on Dec. 7, and we expect more character announcements and final details on the mysterious Spirits mode that Sakurai teased earlier this summer. And probably Waluigi.

After the Nintendo Direct concludes, Nintendo will air a post-show Nintendo Treehouse: Live presentation. Nintendo promises live gameplay of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Diablo 3: Eternal Collection, Pokémon: Let’s Go! and Yoshi’s Crafted World for Switch.
