Start the Sonic and Bayonetta Watch
We’re normally not big on announcements of announcements around here, but given the incredible reaction seen to both Sonic’s addition to Super Smash Bros. Brawl on the Wii and Sega’s new partnership with Nintendo, we wanted to at least alert you to a reveal regarding the next SSB next week.
According to SSB creator Masahiro Sakurai in a tweet picked up by NeoGAF, players will see the first trailer of the new installment during the E3 themed Nintendo Direct next Tuesday.
お知らせしておきます。6月11日23時配信のNintendo Directで、新作『スマブラ』の映像が初披露となります。世界同時、ここが初！ お見逃しなく。

There has been plenty of speculation not so much of if there will be a Sega presence in the new Super Smash Bros, but how much. There have been rumblings Sonic could return, and the possibility of Bayonetta joining the fray, given the Wii U exclusivity of Bayonetta 2. It’s too early to tell whether this trailer will provide any insight to those prospects, but we will certainly keep tabs on it and any other Sega/Nintendo news to come out of next week’s Electronic Entertainment expo.
