Edit:

Update: A representative from Nintendo has reached out to let us know that the report is false and the release date will not be revealed on Friday.

The release date for the Wii U version of Super Smash Bros. will not be unveiled on Friday during the stream, but more information about the game will be showcased.

Probably just for NA, as the livestream is from NoA.

As for the biggest remaining 2014 Nintendo mystery, the company still isn't saying when Smash Bros. for Wii U will be out. During the presentation, a Nintendo rep said the date would be revealed this Friday during Nintendo's Smash Bros. streaming event.

"Because someone leaked a bunch of 3DS stuff we're happy to announce that the Wii U version is coming much sooner than expected! You will see it in stores next week!

Sadly, in order to avoid leaks and to get the game out on time we have removed the characters and fighting engine and now the Wii U version of Smash Bros. is a menu simulator. Please understand."

I'll be shocked if the release date isn't Nov. 21.

But I don't care, that's exciting!

"After seeing the success that Square Enix has had streaming Wii U content to the 3DS via the cloud with Dragon Quest X, we've decided to do the opposite, so the Wii U Smash Bros will now be a stream of the 3DS version."

Hoping we'll get an announcement of a Wii U bundle with the game for that date. Been holding out on buying a Wii U the last few months hoping/betting on one.

This points towards a 2014 release. I'm surprised, I thought it would slip to early 2015.

They're not going to delay their flagship Ammibo title into next year. I'm surprised that anyone thought the Wii U version was going to be delayed.

Haha. Honestly not sure if they will release any Smash bundle at all (this holiday season) never mind $250.
If they can release a Mario Kart 8 bundle, a $300 Smash bundle is a safe bet.

Could include the Gamecube controller+adapter as well depending on the price increase.

They have been saying 2014 for the longest time. I'm surprised some people still thought they weren't going to make it.

Damn that probably means it wont skip xmas, I was sure it would be delayed to 2015 to give the 3DS version some room, wow.

It's coming Holiday 2014 as of E3. And considering that the Amiibo figures drop this November, Nintendo won't allow Smash U to miss this year (that & it'd kill any signs of life the Wii U got from Mario Kart 8).
Basically this. Delaying this to 2015 would be the equivalent of Nintendo burying the WiiU as it is trying to dig out of its hole.

They'll cut characters if they have to ( ;_;7 Lucas) , but it'll be 2014.
