Watch today's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Nintendo Direct

They're all here.

Nintendo's final briefing on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is due to go live at 2pm UK time today - and you can watch it just below.

We're expecting to hear about the last few fighters in the game's enormous roster, and discover what exactly the recently-glimpsed Spirits mode is all about.

Nintendo has been cautious about over-egging the number of new characters in Ultimate, which has the largest roster in the series already due to its inclusion of every character which has ever appeared in a Smash game to date. That said, we get the feeling there's two or three still under wraps to be shown today...

Spirits mode, meanwhile, is more of a mystery. Smash Bros. has featured a variety of single-player modes in the past and we've yet to see one for Ultimate. We'll just have to tune in at 2pm to see what it's all about.
