The Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS details have been consistently coming from Nintendo ahead of the release of both versions, especially after an exciting E3. The game will be out on October 3 for 3DS and this holiday season on Wii U, though we'll likely have to wait for winter to approach for a specific release date.

Nintendo revealed multiple new playable characters during and after its E3 Digital Event, introducing four fighters that include three Super Smash Bros debutants. It looks like Mr. Game & Watch is returning alongside newcomers Pac-man, Lady Palutena from Kid Icarus, and the customizable Mii Fighters.

There was a wide variety of information this week from the daily updates, and since Nintendo does not post on the weekend, it's a good time to review what we were shown over the last few days.

Many of the updates were character-related this week, starting with the reveal of the Smash Run character Poppant. Costumes and appearances were popular, with Sakurai showing off the alternate pink hoodie outfit for Little Mac, a suit costume for the Mii Gunner, and the different versions of Mega Man that appear in his final smash.

The only post that wasn't character related was the reveal of a new stage for the 3DS version of the game, Pac-Maze, which features Pac-Dots you can collect for a bonus. More details will continue to be revealed next week, so keep checking back for Super Smash Bros information.
