Sakurai to host Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct livestream on November 6

Smash Ultimate fans can look forward to some details about the next DLC fighter, Terry Bogard.


Nintendo has announced a 45-minute video livestream coming on November 6 that will feature a first look at the next DLC fighter in Smash Bros. Ultimate. Game Director Masahiro Sakurai will be hosting the Direct and taking a look at Terry Bogard from the Fatal Fury series. For some reason, the stream is going to kick off at 5 AM PT.

Nintendo also mentioned in a follow up tweet that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version 6.0.0 will release soon. Players should expect buffs and nerfs to fighters, which will affect the game's replay feature. If you want to save that info, go to Vault, then Replays, then Replay Data, and then choose Convert to Video. This will save all your sweet battles before you update to version 6.0.0. Terry Bogard, the fourth DLC fighter, will also be available after the patch hits NIntendo Switch consoles.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been in the news lately as it is now the best selling fighting video game of all-time. Nintendo announced the sales milestone during their quarterly earnings results last week. Smash Ultimate is now the second best-selling NIntendo Switch title sitting only behind Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Ultimate has surpassed Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of Wild with 15.71 million copies sold in less than a year.

The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct livestream will kick off at 8 AM ET on November 6, so keep an eye on Shacknews for news as it breaks. We will also be checking our Nintendo Switch consoles for the version 6.0.0 patch update following the stream.
