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. Since then, we've been shown a variety of new details, ranging from stages to character costumes.

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.

The week began with the reveal of another Assist Trophy, Takamaru from Mysterious Murasame Castle. The next update showed off a Paper Mario stage, which may be moved around by winds--unless Sakurai was simply joking.

The trend of item and stage-related reveals continued over the next two days starting with the Boss Galaga item, which traps you in its tractor beam. The following was a look at the Reshiram statue, which will appear alongside other Pokemon.

The week concluded with the reveal of a Home-run Contest-like minigame for the 3DS version based on a bomb, which you damage while it counts down. More details will continue to be revealed next week, so keep checking back for Super Smash Bros information.
