Smash Bros Wii U screenshots to be revealed at E3 2013

Fans urged to remain patient

Nintendo fans have once again urged to remain patient as they wait for ,Smash Bros Wii U. Speaking during Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata said that Smash Bros chief Sakurai will show off the first screenshots of the new Wii U brawler at E3 2013 which kicks off on 11 June.

Iwata said: "Smash Bros is a huge development undertaking and we need more time before it launches. Mr Sakurai told us that we have set the timing for the first screens at this year's E3. Please wait for just a little longer."

So far all we've seen is a sketch for the game which is a collaboration between Sakurai's studio and Namco Bandai.

    June can't come soon enough!

    Edit: shouldn't it be E3 2013 not 12?

    I'd like to see some sort of cinematic trailer too, builds hype nicely.

    Dont know why it says 2021 but I would love to see something at E3. Seeing new characters would be awesome but I would be happy with just some comformation of Toon Link being in the game or somebody like Toon Link.

    I hope Professor Layton makes an appearance.

    I have to admit, I didn't expect this! Maybe that was foolish of me, but I though that what with Sakurai trying to keep us all patient things like screenshots just would be ready. I was expecting that to come sometime in the Winter with one of the Direct broadcasts or something, with E3 2014 showcasing actual gameplay. But screenshots at E3 2013? That's exciting!

    It not surprising that Iwata had to remind viewers to wait. No matter how many time we get told to be patient, a whole host of comments come in saying "WHEN ARE WE GONNA SEE SMASH BROS!" If I was Iwata or Sakurai I'd punish them by saying "If your not going to be patient, you get get it at all."
