It won't be much longer now until E3 2015 is upon gamers, and a medley of gaming announcements are made. Suffice to say, this year is set to be a huge one for gaming as Microsoft and Sony continue to wage war against one another in a bid for living room supremacy. Nintendo, on the other hand, has typically done its own thing during the annual gaming conference, and this year will be no different.
Aside from previously announced plans for the Nintendo Digital Event and the return of the Nintendo World Championship, the Big N has announced that it will host a separate presentation dedicated entirely to its smash-hit fighting games, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U.
Updating its official E3 2015 website, the house of Mario confirmed that a showcase of sorts, hosted by none other than Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai, will be going on days before its major E3-focussed presentation. This video is set to feature new content coming to the all-star fight title, and the stream will kick off on June 14 at 7:40 a.m. PT.
While fans are sure to tune into that, many dedicated players believe they may very well already know what to expect from the conference – or, at the least, some of it. Some may recall a rumor that involved Ryu from Street Fighter and Roy from Fire Emblem joining the fight as downloadable characters. Alleged data found within a recent update for Smash 3DS is what lead gamers to believe the content was imminent, and E3 2015 seems like the best place to showcase this newfound guest fighter and the return of a series veteran.
Of course, an entire presentation dedicated to showing off a pair of new DLC fighters doesn't make that much sense. Instead, we'd imagine that even more content will be shown, such as stages or maybe even modes. This is just speculation on our part, but it would make sense given the fact that Nintendo has roped off a block dedicated solely to Super Smash Bros. and its upcoming content.
With the stream getting underway just a day before Lucas makes his downloadable return, it's sure to be a busy week for Smash fans. That said, it also means a lot more content is set to be doled out over time, and that will undoubtedly get the fan base engaged and excited for many more months to come.
The Super Smash Bros. presentation will kick off on June 14 at 7:40 a.m. PT, but stay tuned to Game Rant for coverage from the showcase.
