We've learnt in recent times that Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS won't be short of variety; the roster and stage lists continue to grow, while the number of trophies and music tracks are set to be higher than ever. There'll also be plenty of outfits, some rather risqué and others that are simple colour variations.

Masahiro Sakurai has used his latest Pic of the Day posts to highlight that there'll be more colour swaps and designs than before, with eight for each characters — rather than six in predecessors. Below are the details and some examples.

Pic of the day. Until now, you were only able to choose from four, or sometimes five or six colors for each character. This time, though, all characters have eight colors to choose from! The first four color schemes for Samus are based off her Varia Suit, Fusion Suit, Gravity Suit from Super Metroid, and the Dark Suit.

…And here she is in the color schemes of the Gravity Suit from Metroid Prime, Green Samus (a regular in the Smash series), the Light Suit, and Dark Samus. A total of eight colors.

You can choose between four male and four female Villagers to play with. The designs for their faces and clothes are different. And here are the four Villagers we haven't shown you yet.

Do you like the look of these designs, and will you be going all pink, black, purple? Let us know.
