It’s been a while since the last time we saw Masahiro Sakurai, the big boss of the Super Smash Bros. series, appear in a Nintendo Direct, but he’ll be doing so in next week’s presentation.
Here’s the tweet from Sakurai:

“Of course I’ll introduce something. It’s been a while since I did one of these…”
While he doesn’t exactly say he’ll appear during the Nintendo Direct, it’s certainly implied in his tweet. The last time we saw him in a Direct presentation was for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS.
