Nintendo announced today that it's planning a Super Smash Bros. Wii U Nintendo Direct on April 8, at 6 PM EST. Nintendo has been especially tight-lipped with information about the new game.

Nintendo has released few videos and only still images of characters and play-style. So this new Nintendo Direct would be a prefect time for Nintendo to announce a release date for the hotly-anticipated game. Although Nintendo previously teased that Super Smash Bros. would be released this spring, it doesn't seem likely since Mario Kart 8 is set to drop on May 30.

Keep it locked to Complex VG for updates or tune-in yourself for Nintendo's awkward Direct series.
