Things are about to get real!

Famed Japanese video game designer for the Kirby and Super Smash Bros. series, Masahiro Sakurai, has recently announced some terrific news.

First, he has confirmed (1st Tweet) that an exclusive gameplay video for the new Super Smash Bros. title for Wii U and 3DS will be shown at next week's Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), held in Los Angeles, California. The new Smash video will be globally broadcast at some point during Nintendo's E3 Nintendo Direct, which takes place on Tuesday, June 11th.

Secondly, he has reassured fans (2nd Tweet) that he will be present at this year's E3.

Are you excited for the next installment into the Super Smash Bros. series?

I am excited for this. I really loved the mash up of characters in the previous installments but always got bogged down by the controls. They just did not flow naturally to me as other fighting games do. I hope that this is solved this time around with the help of Namco Bandai. I can't say I love Tekken controls but I would welcome them more than the current control scheme.
I can't wait!! I've loved all the previous games and I'm sure to love this one as well!
And it'll come out for the 3ds!! I love portable gaming and having this one in the line up of awesomness will be a great addition!
I'm most interested in the ways the Wii U and 3DS might connect or overlap in gameplay somehow.

The only title in the franchise that I've really played was the N64 one, Super Smash Bros. I know that the more recent introductions were much more frantic, with stages that interacted almost constantly with players' characters.

It's always been a big deal of a series, so I'm sure it'll be incredible. Sakurai is crazy talented. I loved Kid Icarus: Uprising so, so much.

What I expect to see is a short video showing something that fans can latch onto, but nothing really concrete. I doubt we'll get a roster of all the characters and stages available. It'll be a teaser. And then in the coming months, Nintendo will share a little more with us.
