Many gamers are currently huddled around their consoles waiting for Destiny to arrive (or already playing it in some instances), and while the game admittedly looks to be a contender for game of the year, Nintendo aficionados don’t have Bungie’s blockbuster to look forward to. Understanding that the bulk of software will be arriving from Nintendo themselves, the house of Mario has decided to give fans a closer look at a number of games it’ll be releasing in the coming months.
The Big N took to Twitter earlier today to announce plans to show off a number of different games it has in the pipes. Starting on September 12, 2014, members of Nintendo’s Treehouse (the official title given to the group responsible for localizing software) will be demoing a plethora of exclusive software for anxious gamers via live stream on Twitch.
Nintendo has yet to specify what time this will kick off on its official Twitch account, but the company did confirm that the final version of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS will be played during the showcase – as will a number of other unnamed titles. The stream itself will last a total of eight hours, hopefully providing gamers with a plethora of new information on the fighting game before it’s spoiled by those that’ll be receiving their Japanese copies of the game.
With a majority of the roster already leaked, there’s no telling what other surprises await gamers. The staff at Treehouse are understandably better to demonstrate the modes, fighters and unlockables that await fans in the upcoming portable beat ’em up and it’s something the company will want to do itself, especially since the game’s Japanese release will more or less be occurring while the stream is live.
What aspect of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS do you want to see during the live stream? What other blockbuster Nintendo games are you hoping to see showcased? Let us know in the comments!
Super Smash Bros. for 3DS will be arriving on October 3, 2014, while the Wii U version will hit during Holiday 2014.
