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 features another 3DS-exclusive reveal, which we've seen a good amount of lately. It focuses on a character that appears in Smash Run, as Sakurai explains in his description that accompanied the image above:

"Pic of the day. Here's a Poppant, an enemy that appeared in the previous game in this series. Poppants will appear in Smash Run, scampering around as they drop a variety of items."

It's not a huge reveal, like that of the recent Nabbit post, but adds yet another detail to what we already know of the game. After all the E3 excitement, you can hardly expect new playable character reveals every day, but Nintendo has surprised us before. Keep checking back for more Smash Bros. news each day, where we'll hopefully see new character reveals or a Wii U release date.
