As is usually the case, lots of big things are going to be revealed at E3 this year. Most analysts say that the next PlayStation and Xbox will be taking center stage. However, Nintendo’s new console, the Wii U, has already been released, and so their presentation will be all about the software. Of course, where there’s a new Nintendo console, there’s a new Super Smash Brothers, and Nintendo has recently confirmed in a Nintendo Direct conference that we will get our first look at the new Smash during E3 2013.

The new Smash Bros., titled Smash Brothers Universe if we can believe some prior leaks, was announced at E3 2011. Last year, unfortunately, the event provided us no information about the new title. Recently, we have learned that Namco Bandai will be handling development this time around and, considering their experience in the fighting game industry, that may mean good things for the beloved Nintendo franchise.

SRK will be at E3 this year and we will bring you updates about the new Smash Bros. live from the event.
