'Super Smash Bros 4' News: Link 'Skyward Sword' Costume Revealed [SCREEN]
The Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS details will keep coming from Nintendo ahead of the staggered release of both versions, even after all the excitement from E3.
The title will be out for 3DS on October 3, as Nintendo announced at the gaming conference, and this holiday season on Wii U. A specific release date for the console version will likely be forthcoming as winter approaches, but Nintendo has plenty of time to make that announcement.
Several new characters and other details were revealed at E3 as expected, including the unveiling of Lady Palutena, Pac-man, Mr. Game & Watch, and the Mii Fighters. Even after these major announcements, though, series director Masahiro Sakurai will continue to give us comparatively smaller details through the official site in the form of a daily picture update.
Today's post shows off a new costume for The Legend of Zelda's Link, based on his appearance in Skyward Sword. Here's Sakurai's accompanying description of the above image:
"Pic of the day. Here's Link in an outfit based on his ordinary clothes in Skyward Sword! The art style looks a little different, but the actual clothing model is still his usual tunic."
It's nice to see alternate costume and color options that aren't simply the normal tunic in different colors like in the past, aside from the Dark Link variant. Hopefully this will apply to all the characters for more entertaining and diverse costume options. Keep checking back for more Super Smash Bros. news each day, where we'll hopefully see new character reveals or a Wii U release date.
