Nintendo of America tweets a reminder for The Game Awards, airing tomorrow at 5:30pm PT

We are all hoping for a Smash reveal...

The Game Awards is one of the biggest nights in gaming, and it's just around the corner! The awards show will be airing live, starting tomorrow at 5:30pm PT. Game announcements and teases happen every year at the event from many different companies, and Nintendo is no stranger in participating. Last year, Joker infiltrated the theater, revealing him as the first DLC character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Marvel Ultimate Alliance was also announced at TGA last year as a Switch exclusive title. Since Nintendo is now tweeting about the 2019 event, there is not much doubt that something will be revealed from them soon.

Could we possibly see another Smash character reveal? We don't have long to find out what Nintendo has in store for us.

Smash Bros. Brawl mod adds in Godzilla

The king of the monsters!

Smash Bros. Ultimate may be the best-selling fighting game of all-time, but that doesn't mean previous Smash games are left in the dust. Brawl still has a hugely popular modding scene, leading to all sorts of new characters being added all the time. Case in point, the addition of Godzilla, who makes his debut in the trailer above. While Godzilla will most likely never see inclusion in an actual Smash Bros. game, the gameplay above shows that he'd be a more than worthy addition!
