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 focuses on the 3DS version, as you can see in the image above. It's a bit of an odd one, as Sakurai splits his attention between the Dark Emperor and the Mii Fighter's clothing. Here's his description:

"Pic of the day. Just like in the original game, the Dark Emperor can cause status changes based on a fighter's color. Red types generally get powered up. On a different subject, the Mii Fighter is wearing a Mii Force Helmet."

The picture naturally prompted mostly complaints in the comments, from those wanting a Captain Falcon announcement (the helmet resembles his) or a new stage or character instead of a minor post. Keep checking back for more Super Smash Bros. news each day, to see if those fans will get their wishes.
