Typically, Evo-exclusive announcements are a special affair at the conclusion of a tournament. Nintendo has chosen to take a slightly different tact at Evo 2018, though:
Right before the Armada v. Leffen grand finals, Nintendo quietly dropped a small video in front of the Evo crowd with little more than a date — August 8th, 7:00 A.M. PT. That date reveal is for a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate direct, which will almost certainly cover new content.
Will we see characters, stages, or new modes in the direct? Only one way to find out — wake up early and tune in to Nintendo’s YouTube channel on the 8th!
