I’m sure most of you are having a grand time in the 3DS version of Super Smash Bros., but let’s not forget that this is only half of the package. We’re only a month away from the release of the Wii U version of the game, and, to reignite the Fires of Hype, Nintendo will be hosting a Nintendo Direct showcasing exclusive features to the home console version this Thursday, October 23.

It is unclear just what Nintendo and, undoubtedly, Masahiro Sakurai will be showing off for this Direct, aside from a somewhat mysterious “50 new things.” Given the exciting new features that we’ve already seen in the portable version, what could Sakurai still have up his sleeve? New modes? More custom moves for characters? More stages? New hats?! The possibilities are endless! Sadly, it’s already been made painfully clear that there will be no new characters, so as to keep things consistent between the two games, so you Ridley hopefuls needn’t hold your breaths.

The Smash Bros. for Wii U Direct will begin this Thursday at 3 p.m. PST, though it’s unclear how long it will last. With 50 items to talk about, it could be a long one, or they could go down the list pretty quickly. Either way, it’s sure to be a good time, and be sure to check back here for complete coverage of the event!
