Super Smash Bros For Wii U And 3DS Character Details: Bonus Images Of New Challengers Captain Falcon, Lucina & Robin [NEW SCREENS]

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.

Captain Falcon And Two New Fire Emblem  Characters Revealed

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 pic of the day is another look at some of the new characters revealed yesterday, and Sakurai has actually posted multiple new images since the last update. Today's is the picture shown above, with its accompanying description and the extra images below:

"Along with Robin, Lucina joins the battle!! Her physical abilities are identical to Marth's--it must be in her D.N.A. However, where Marth's power is concentrated in the tip of the sword, Lucina's attack strength is balanced throughout the weapon, which might make her easier to control. She's also a little bit shorter than Marth."

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.
