The day is finally upon us. The Nintendo Direct for E3 2021 is scheduled to begin today at 9:00 a.m. PT / 12:00 p.m. ET.

"Tune in for a Nintendo Direct with roughly 40 minutes of info focused exclusively on Nintendo Switch software, mostly releasing in 2021, followed by around 3 hours of gameplay in Nintendo Treehouse Live," said Nintendo on Twitter. Despite the wording, some fans are expecting to hear about some announcement regarding an upgraded version of the Nintendo Switch console.

Although Nintendo has not officially confirmed that a new character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Fighter Pass Vol. 2 is to be announced today, at least one new challenger is expected to be unveiled during the presentation.

Notably, it's been over 3 months since the last DLC character, Xenoblade Chronicles 2's Pyra & Mythra, were released. The timing seems perfect for a new reveal.

According to Masahiro Sakyurai, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be finalized after the release of all DLC characters. It's expected that the last two challengers of the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 will be the last ones to join Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
