Nintendo announced that a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate focused Nintendo Direct will broadcast this Thursday.
Starting at 10am ET/7am PT/3pm GMT, it'll be the last Smash Direct shown before the game launches in just over a month's time.
According to an official Tweet, the livestream, led by director Masahiro Sakurai, will end with a post-show Nintendo Treehouse: Live presentation.

The presentation should feature gameplay from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Pokemon: Let's Go! Pikachu and Let's Go! Eevee, Yoshi's Crafted World, and Diablo 3: Eternal Edition.
But for the initial Smash Direct, expect to see a final wave of playable characters added to the already impressive roster - it currently has 72.

Here's every playable character so far:
Chrom (Roy echo fighter)
Daisy (Peach echo fighter)
Dark Pit (Pit echo fighter)
Dark Samus (Samus echo fighter)
The Ice Climbers
