On the company’s Japanese account, Nintendo asked fans to imagine who the final fighter could be. They also revealed the program will be 40 minutes long. So far, there’s been a lot of speculation about who the final character for Smash Bros Ultimate might be, along with the classic meme that Walugi won’t be coming to the game.
Nintendo already has broadcast scheduled on YouTube, and the waiting area is live. Chat is currently disabled on the scheduled video, but at time of writing, there were more than 1,000 people waiting.
