Super Smash Bros. fans: the E3 2015 fun kicks off for you on Sunday June 14.

A Super Smash Bros. video presentation will be broadcast at 7:40am PST on June 14, Nintendo has announced.

A European equivalent will be shown simultaneously (4:40pm CEST June 14). Here’s a conversion link for your timezone.

No word on what the special Nintendo Direct session will cover, but it will be hosted by project lead Masahiro Sakurai. We expect to hear about upcoming DLC characters at the very least, joining the likes of MewTwo and Mother 3’s Lucas, who drops next month.

This will probably be the biggest Smash Bros. news drop of E3 2015. Nintendo hasn’t fronted a traditional E3 presentation for several years now, relying on Nintendo Direct and Nintendo Treehouse to communicate with consumers rather than press and trade. It does bring its products to the show floor, though.
