Straight from the Director’s Room on Miiverse, Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed that each character in the upcoming Smash Bros. game will have a total of eight different outfits. In previous games in the series, each character usually had four or five different outfits to choose from. Most of the time these different outfits were just a simple palette swap, but it seems this time around more characters will have actual different outfits, in particular Villager, Little Mac and Mii Fighter. Here’s to hoping if Dr. Mario isn’t a full-on character, we at least get a costume swap for Mario where he dons the iconic head mirror.
Smash Bros. for 3DS is set to release on October 3rd here in the US so definitely keep an eye out for our upcoming review as well as more updates as the game nears its launch day.
