Little Mac Sports Pink Sweatsuit In Latest Smash Bros Screenshot, More Alternative Character Costumes Teased

Super Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai has shown off Little Mac’s alternative costume for the upcoming brawler in today’s Miiverse screenshot. Hot on the heels of Link’s alternative costume shown last week, Punch-Out!!’s Little Mac sports a rather fetching pink sweatshirt and trousers with his green boxing gloves, as teased previously in animated form in his introductory video. It’s a cool look for a mighty player, as Sakurai emphasises in his post:

“The pink sweatshirt looks really cool on Little Mac, so you can use that outfit in this game… How can a pink sweatshirt look so cool?”

But that’s not all the brawler’s director had to say, he also hinted that there are many things that have yet to be revealed. Whether he’s teasing more alternative costumes, we’ll just have to wait and see. Let us know what you think of Little Mac’s pink outfit in the comment section below. Here’s the additional tease Sakurai shared on Miiverse:

“Looks like some of you noticed that this version of Little Mac wasn’t shown at E3. There are many things, like Link’s Skyward Sword tunic design I posted earlier, that haven’t been revealed yet.”

  1. Assassin Lil Mac! lol Just kidding. Anyway, I hope Zelda is getting her Goddess Dress from Skyward Sword as an alternate outfit. And Sakurai better use the actual dress, not do it like he did Link’s outfit from the beginning of Skyward Sword.

    1. Yeah, Sakurai will probably pick something fan’s hate, way to boost sales and all, yeah?

      1. Oh I love the alternate outfit for Link since his usual tunic design with the hood is always better than the outfits he started off wearing in Wind Waker & Skyward Sword. I just want Zelda to have the original Goddess Dress.

      2. I’m guessing Sir Sakurai will implement the Fierce Diety costume…

      3. That would be awesome. Fierce Deity Link & Goddess Zelda team for the win! >.<

      4. And Mega Ganondorf…

        His form in Hyrule Warriors perhaps whatever it looks like…

      5. Not really officially no, but if you saw the latest trailer, at the end there is a character that is basically Ganondorf…

        I would be surprised if it wasn’t…

      6. I really hope not, like he was a really hard hitter, but…yeah, Capt Falcon is enough, but I highly doubt it, not with the release of WindWaker

      7. Now that you mention Wind Waker, I’d love for Ganondorf’s moveset to be a mix of his Wind Waker sword attacks & Ocarina of Time magic attacks.

      8. If Ganondorf gets Demise as an alternate outfit, Ganondorf damn sure better have his own original moveset this time around. Otherwise, I’ll gladly take Ghirahim over Ganondorf if it meant no Falcon moveset clone, no offense to Capt Falcon.

      9. But yeah. Demon King Demise Ganondorf, Goddess Zelda, & Fierce Deity Link would be a nice little trio to look forward to.

      10. It would be kind of silly though…

        Although Ganondorf is Demise in a sense, Ganondorf is still his own persona with the essence of Demise…

        But there has to be an evil Zelda character, preferably Ganondorf and Ghirahim…

        And I’m sure Ghirahim will share the spotlight with Captain Falcon on taunt moves because of his perverted tongue haha…

      11. Well since it would be more of an alternate costume anyway, I don’t see why canon should effect this possibility.

      12. I guess we shouldn’t bring Meta Knight back because he can fly. Turning his flight ability into a glide would not be canon. *sarcasm* lol

      13. It’ll just be a cool extra for people who DO like it

        Calm down

  2. I thought this was already a given? You know, since he was wearing it when he “got introduced” to the game in his first promo vid?

    1. Gosh, I forgot about that. Interesting! Well, there’s your confirmation for it in game instead of the introductory animation. Will edit this in to the post, cheers. :)

      1. Yeah, I don’t think any of the other characters had anything like that in their introductions so I just assumed, looks pretty good in-game though :)

  3. Cool. Finally we’re getting alternative costumes in Smash, instead of just re-colors :D

      1. That fart move always gets me, especially when it doesn’t work and he looks as if he’s saying “Sorry guys, I tried to impress you but I just couldn’t…”

      2. Speaking of, I think the thing with Wario having two different outfits in Brawl was Sakurai testing the waters for alternate outfits.

      3. I reckon characters will only have 2 different outfits each too though, like Wario, maybe people don’t like pink and will want a green sweatshirt… I reckon it’ll be too much effort to implement a whole bunch of alternates and their different colours… Still 2 per, maybe 3 is enough, is better than nothing :)

        I agree though with the Wario thing, always found it weird he was the only one

      4. I love subtle stuff like this. I wonder if the romantic tension between Link & Zelda in Skyward Sword was Aonuma testing the waters for a romantic relationship between the two characters. If Hyrule Warriors makes Link & Zelda become close in the same manner as the game’s story progresses & it’s well received, I’m going to have a hard time not wondering if it will be a sign of things to come for Zelda U.

      5. *subtle stuff like this to test the waters for something new.

      6. Little Mac has 4 already: regular outfit, title defense outfit (in the pic, although it’s just an intelligent pallete swap), the sweatshit one and arcade Mac (that TRONish alt).

      7. Atleast 4 different costumes for all characters confirmed…

      8. I wouldn’t make that conclusion just yet. Wario was the only one that had alternative costumes in Brawl. I’m expecting at least 2 for character, even when Little Mac and Vilager seem to indicate that there will be more.

      9. This does at least guarantee that certain characters will get more than just 2 or 3 alternate outfits, though.

      10. Yeah, but we don’t even have a pattern to grab onto (not that it matters with Smash, but it’s better than nothing). Villager and Mac have both 4 alts, WFT has 2, Link has 2, Wario had 2 in Brawl… I think two alternative costumes are to be expected, but more? Let’s wait and see.

      11. Indeed…

        Zero Suit Samus should obviously have the Metroid Fusion alternate costume…

        Samus in her suit form should have as alternates, Gravity Suit, Light Suit, Dark Suit and PED Suit…

      12. “Zero Suit Samus should obviously have the Metroid Fusion alternate costume…”
        Didn’t think of that. It would be really cool.

        “Samus in her suit form should have as alternates, Gravity Suit, Light Suit, Dark Suit and PED Suit…”
        I’d like to see Power instead of Gravity, since it’s so similar to the Varia suit, but your list is more plausible.

      13. A Samus outfit showing off more skin as an alternate outfit for Zero Suit Samus with her hair down? Is that the Fusion outfit you are referring to? I’m all for that.

        Original Varia Suit, Dark Suit, Light Suit, PED Suit, & Fusion Suit alternate costumes would be awesome. I can see myself using the Light & Fusion Suits often.

      14. No, the Fusion Suit for Zero Suit Samus because it makes more sense in a way since the Fusion Suit is not really an ordinary suit…

        And other costumes should be her 3 appearances in Other M, Military Samus, Fleet Samus and Other M Ending Samus…

      15. Ah okay. Seeing how Sakurai did Link’s outfit in the beginning of Skyward Sword, I can see Zero Suit Samus getting the color scheme of Samus’ first Fusion Suit. And I like the Other M ending Samus idea. Women always look better with their hair down.

      16. lol I prefer a balance of bare skin & clothed skin for women. It’s much more attractive that way. I like for there to be something left to the imagination as opposed to nothing.

      17. Oh and her 3 other appearances when she was younger as shown in Other M…

      18. There was two types: Wario Classic and WarioWare.

        He meant to say in majority, the alternates are recolors.

    1. I mentioned the idea of Dr Mario being an alternate costume for Mario in another article. lol It would keep Dr Mario from taking up a spot for a playable character. And it would make Dr Mario less of a moveset clone.

      1. It should instead of being another character as he was in Melee…

      2. We could say the same about Luigi IF he wasn’t his own character, unlike Dr Mario. Not to mention that Luigi’s Final Smash is different from Mario’s & I think I recall Luigi’s moveset getting some new moves that aren’t used by Mario himself in Brawl.

  4. True. Dr. Mario was a good character, but very pointless. Maybe Sakurai could take Dr. Mario’s strengths in Melee and Mario’s together and create a good moveset! Kinda like what they did in Project M.

  5. Dark Pit as a costume for Pit.
    Antimario as a costume for Mario.
    Dr. Luigi as a costume for Luigi.
    Shadow as a costume for Sonic.

    :O

      1. I meant the Shadow Mario in Sunshine (which is actually Bowser Jr. if I’m not wrong).

      2. Ah…

        Too bad Bowser Jr is not in the game, it wouldbe his alternate then…

      3. Well when he’s as Shadow Mario he just acts like Mario, not like Bowser Jr. at all. That’s why I think proposing it as a costume for Mario would be cool. But I guess I am dreaming. ^_^

      4. And replaced by the 7 Koopalings; smartest character roster decision Nintendo made for MK in years. I hated Jr. for so many reason including replacing the 7 Bowser children. Each and every one of them individually or as a whole, are too good to be replaced by a bratty Baby Bowser look alike with no sense of character. XP

      5. I will admit Nintendo went overboard with the baby characters, though. I can understand Baby Mario & Baby Luigi since they’ve been featured in other games. Baby Peach & Baby Daisy, on the other hand were rather pointless.

      6. They also stripped out Dry Bones, Dry Bones Bowser, Boo, and a bunch of other cool drivers…replacing them with a fuck-ton of babies. I respectfully, strong disagree with their shit-decision on changing the roster to adapt it to kids, and remove all the “scary” drivers from the Wii version. If I knew it was Mario Kart 7 HD, I probably wouldn’t have bought it.

      7. I agree with you on that 100%, always hated him too for the same reasons, and love the Koopalings. And sorry fuck what Shigeru says, THEY are his real kids, you can’t just say they aren’t after like 10-15 years of them being considered his kids in the games and cartoons and add that little pipsqueak as a replacement.

    1. Shadow as a costume for Sonic makes more sense than Shadow getting his own character slot as some people on Miiverse have been asking.

      1. That’s what I think too. He would basically have the same skills, so simply providing a Shadow costume, with darker attacks and a difference voice (just as for WFT or Villagers) should make it in my opinion.

      2. And it would keep the people that don’t want too many 3rd party characters taking up spots from complaining. Of course, I wouldn’t blame them, though. It’s way too soon to be adding more than two 3rd party characters from the same franchise.

      3. Yeah. Like Goku, Shrek, Powerpuff Girls. I like all of those characters there but no. Just no. No 4th party characters! I don’t give a damn how popular they are!

      4. Damn right lol! Let’s put in Optimus Prime and Stone Cold Steve Austin and shit Jim Carrey as The Mask lol! Smokin’!

      5. “Oh my god! Stone Cold just used the Stunner on Mario! Mario got the Stunner from Steve Austin! My god! The humanity!” xD Is that a good mimic of JR? But why stop there. Let’s throw in Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, a xenomorph, an alien from Predator, Predalien, Yoda, Jigsaw from Saw, Mickey Mouse! *pulls out a gun & holds it to mouth, screen goes black* lol I hate seeing all of these ridiculous suggestions. What would be even more sad, though, is someone preferring a 4th party character over Ridley for a playable character. Least Ridley is 1st party.

      6. Yea it was good ol’ JR lol. And I have no problem with Ridley being in the game. He definitely deserves a spot over 4th party. I don’t see why people make such a deal over his size. As long as they give him good moves and don’t just throw him in to throw him in, I don’t care if he’s downsized. I’ll admit I’m not a huge fan of him but I wouldn’t say no to having him for people who are big fans. Maybe his final smash could be that he goes giant size so he would be normal ridley size. I do wish Wonder Red & Wonder Blue were in it on a side note, I know they are not even a year old franchise yet (as of actual game release date) so there are probably more classics deserving a spot before them, but any character from Wonderful 101 would be +100 points for the new smash. Assist Trophy was a good step in the right direction. That’s my one request but I won’t be mad or surprised if they aren’t in it.

    1. LOL that would be awesome, hopefully that happens later on or maybe sooner than later.

      1. Ugh! I wish Toon Link did have the damn Mirror Shield instead of the shield from his grandmother. It goes GREAT with the Master Sword. In fact, I always do the Earth Temple first just so I can have the Mirror Shield for Link throughout the rest of the game.

      2. IDK? I’m already far more endeared to SK than Megaman or Snake. SK has the heart of a Nintendo Character and should be granted the adoptive privileges thereof! ;D

    2. We wish. But since he’s a multiplat character that just got released, its beyond too late for him. XD

      1. Yeah. I know it’s a snowball’s chance in hell, but I think he fits just as well as the other multi-plat, Snake (Not returning tho,I don’t think) and Megaman.

        I won’t be disappointed if Shovel Knights not in it this round, but I’m starting the hype train early for next! :)

  6. I think Mac will be my main, I love this outfit. My favorite color combination, pink and lime green.

  7. Ths is super awesome! I love having lots of altcostumes. And little Mac has a lot already. It opens up the doors for other characters to have a lot as well :) can’t wait. Plus Mac looks very cool in pink. I think that’s how I’m always gonna play as him.

  8. Nice to see Nintendo/Sakurai is going all out on making this game as feature rich as possible. :3 The more costumes as alternates, the better.

  9. They should add more of these to the wii u as exclusives because it would make sense for the wii u version to have some sort of cool features to stand out.

    1. That’s a good idea. Both versions should get exclusive alternate outfits. If Sakurai goes with DLC later on after they’ve both released, he could have the DLC we buy contain exclusive stuff for Wii U & 3DS. It’d be a nice way to utilize the cross buy feature.

    1. Then what would be your idea for Shadow? Cuz he’s not getting in as a playable character if that’s what you want.

    1. Who knows. Maybe that’s one of the alternate outfits Sakurai hasn’t revealed yet.

      1. I hope so but I doubt there’s enough demand…it would be a great blast of nastalgia for fans of the cartoons and such and it wouldn’t be hard to do.
