Masahiro Sakurai will reveal the final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter tomorrow in a 40-minute stream.
After announcing the announcement of an announcement during the September 2021 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo has confirmed that the final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter reveal will take place tomorrow.
The stream will happen at 3 pm BST on Tuesday, October 5. That’s 7 am Pacific; 10 am Eastern; 11 pm in Japan; and 1 am the following day (October 6) in Sydney, Australia. Other time zones are available.
And it will last an eye-watering 40 minutes.
Sorry, what? 40 minutes? As in, forty? Four-zero? Not fourteen, one-four? Give us strength.
Still, at least once the final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter has been revealed, after what feels like thousands of hours of Sakurai talking at us on video presentations, we won’t have to hear any more about it.
Predictions who the final fighter could be? Honestly, could not care less at this stage. Just pleased it will all be over soon. We’re already mentally preparing the “the evil is defeated” gif from The Cabin in the Woods.
