A new Nintendo Direct focusing on the upcoming Nintendo Switch game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is kicking off on Nov. 1.

The Direct will be about 40 minutes long and will be full of new information about the game before its release. It will also be the final Direct about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before the game releases on Dec. 7.

Nintendo seems to be gearing up to reveal everything the game has to offer and is even hosting an after-show with the game’s director, Masahiro Sakurai, as soon as the Direct comes to an end.

Sakurai said previously that we will know the entire game’s roster before the title releases, so it seems like any potential new characters joining the roster will be revealed in this Direct, alongside any new modes.

We could also potentially get information about the blurred-out green mode that was teased in the last direct on the main menu. What information will be revealed, however, remains a mystery.

The Direct will go live on Nintendo’s Twitch channel at 9am CT.
