Nintendo Announces a New Nintendo Direct at EVO 2018

One of the biggest announcements to come out of EVO 2018 today came from of all people, Nintendo, who revealed a new Nintendo Direct. The news was done before the Super Smash Bros. Melee championship round, which had the entire arena on their feet as they erupted with excitement, and then subsequently revealed on Twitter moments later.

The reason this is such a big deal is that this Nintendo Direct appears to be focused squarely on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, coming out later this year. And if you know anything about Nintendo Direct presentations, you know this is usually where the company likes to take a moment and reveal something new that hasn't been revealed to the public yet. So best case scenario, we're going to get some character reveals and possibly a word about what the rumored storyline will be behind this incarnation of the series. The event will take place this Wednesday, August 8th at 7 a.m. PDT.
