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 update is another new costume, like what we saw recently with Link's Skyward Sword outfit and Little Mac's pink hoodie. Fans speculated Link's new costume meant that there would be more variation for other characters rather than just the color swaps of the past, which proved to be the case when Little Mac's hoodie was revealed.

Today's is for the Mii Fighter, which can come in different shapes, styles, and sizes, and is shown rocking a suit in the new image above. Here's Sakurai's accompanying description:

"The Mii Gunner in his suit. Looking sharp! The arm cannon's design will change depending on the outfit, but the attacks and projectiles will be the same."

Based on what we've seen and Sakurai's comments yesterday, there's clearly more surprises to come in terms of characters and costumes--keep checking back for more Smash Bros. news each day.
