Gaming INTEL has been provided with exclusive information via an anonymous source, revealing when we’ll see the upcoming Nintendo Direct / Super Smash Bros Ultimate Direct. According to our source, who also happens to be correct on numerous other leaks that we’ve posted, we should expect either a Nintendo or Super Smash Bros Ultimate Direct to take place from Nov. 5 – Nov. 12. To be specific, our source is most confident that the livestream will take place on November 8th, however that cannot be 100% verified.
UPDATE (October 29, 2018): We have received new insider information regarding the Next Nintendo Direct, which is scheduled for November.
Furthermore, this specific tipster has also been correct with the previous Nintendo Direct Leak. Days before Nintendo of America officially confirmed the intel on their twitter, our source mentioned that a Direct would be taking place on September 6th, 2018. Later on, unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances it was cancelled and commenced at a later date.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Direct
We are currently uncertain on whether the upcoming Direct will regard Nintendo in general or whether it will be specifically related to Super Smash Bros Ultimate. However, if we take a look at the previous dates we could potentially narrow it down to just one.
Last year, on November 7th, a Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Direct took place. The latest Nintendo Direct beforehand took place on September 13th – the same date as this year’s Direct, which primarily focused on Switch and 3DS games. With that said, it’s likely that Nintendo will follow suit this year.
Based on the pattern of previous years and with Super Smash Bros Ultimate releasing on December 7th, we predict the upcoming Direct will regard the upcoming installment in the Smash series.
In addition, the information we have received has been cross referenced with other industrial insiders / leakers.
