Next week’s E3 — Electronic Entertainment Expo — is set to give us the reveal of the new Super Smash Bros. game for Nintendo Switch. As such, it’s expected that series creator Masahiro Sakurai will be making an appearance at the Nintendo Direct presentation for E3.
This does indeed seem to be the case, based on a tweet that he sent out recently. Now, while the tweet below doesn’t directly state that he’ll appear at the Nintendo Direct, it does seem to imply as much.

The last time Sakurai appeared at a Nintendo Direct, it was also at E3, during the reveal of the previous Super Smash Bros. games for Wii U and 3DS. With the impending reveal of the new Smash for Switch, it seems like he’ll be doing the same.
Of course, this isn’t the only thing that Smash players should be looking forward to at E3. Aside from the impending reveal, there’s also the Super Smash Bros. Invitational, which will feature a number of top players competing in the new game.
