With the recent Japanese release of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, information has been released left and right regarding the game’s characters, stages and possible DLC add-on. However, one thing that is easily overlooked is the many alternate character looks that players can choose from within each iteration of Smash. Thanks to this Imgur gallery, you can check out all of Super Smash Bros. 3DS‘ many different character looks right here.

Note: There are some heavy spoilers regarding the full Super Smash Bros. 3DS roster from here on out. Proceed at your own risk.

As you can see, Nintendo raised the amount of costumes and variants the characters can have by putting in eight instead of six, like in Brawl,  in the latest entry of the Smash franchise. Though some of them are a little disappointing like Sonic’s, Pacman’s and Jigglypuff’s for example, characters like Link, Little Mac, Bowser Jr. and Villager all have really cool-looking alternate looks. It will be interesting to see if those costumes will be present in the Wii U version of the game, which is set to release later this year, or if it will have more as these only come from the 3DS version.

While you wait for the release of Super Smash Bros. on Nintendo’s handheld on October 3, you can check out our extensive demo impressions regarding the game right here.
