Super Mario USA And Light Suit Samus Revealed By Sakurai


Super Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai has revealed new alternate costumes for both Samus and Mario. Sakuari announced that Samus will now be able to wear the Light Suit from Metroid Prime 2: Echos. Not be outdone, Mario now has a costume based on Family Computer Golf: U.S. Course! NES Open Tournament Golf.

Pic of the day. The character farther in the back isn’t from the Imperial forces, and the character in the front is not the infamous drum-playing puppet in Osaka. No, Mario is actually wearing an outfit from Family Computer Golf: U.S. Course! NES Open Tournament Golf might be a more familiar title.

Thanks, Rapsol and Dekuplushdoll

        1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

          The only thing this thing has ever done in this site is just to bash me and nothing else, not even a trolling argument…

    1. I like both, though I wish it was the actual light suit. Btw you and I should see who knows their Metroid better. ;)

      1. Same thoughts here bud, the light suit skin is OK, but it could have been better, for starter the arm cannon could have been re-skinned too, to look like the original Prime games and make Sammy look a lil´bit more like she is actually wearing the light suit.
        Or make the same thing they did with Wario in SMBB, Wario had 4 skin colors plus a classic Wario outfit in 4 colors.

      2. A lot of us would agree. The alternate outfit he revealed for Link was okay since it looks awesome. But this! This is horrible! The Light Suit looks 10x better than this color swap. :/

    2. It looks like it’s just a black and white Varia suit. I would have like it much better if it was the actual Light Suit. Still, I will probably use those colors every time I play Samus. Can’t wait for this game.

  1. Both are pretty cool, although I can’t help but think that the Mario one is a wasted spot for a better alt. The Samus one is great, though, and I don’t even like the light suit that much.

    1. Nintendo Commander Quadraxis

      To be honest, it doesn’t resemble the Light Suit much at all anyway…

      A bit disappointing even if I like it…

      1. The characters seem to have one or two intelligent palette swap (like Mac’s title defense outfit) and one true alternative outfit, like the sweatshirt one or the opposite gender Villager/Wii Fit Trainer. Maybe Sakurai’s saving that one for the Dark or Power Suit, since they’re more different to the Varia Suit, who knows.

      2. It looks like it’s just a recolor.
        I was honestly hoping for this costume, but modelled after the original light suit. Oh well

  2. Haha, ‘Murica. Anyways, cool to see & know that there are not just color-palette-swaps but rather different skins! I guess there will be so many more after this… we already got The Villager, Wii Fit Trainer, Link, Little Mac especially and now Mario and Samus! This game will be exploding because of the amount of content it gets!

      1. It would just be another computed port with no dlc. So no thanks.
        I’ll take Devils Third, instead. Third party multiplats can’t be trusted, but exclusives at least have a chance of being good.

  3. Mario’s one will resonate more with American gamers, but is wasted for the rest of the world’s audience. Just my two cents worth.

    Hopefully this does mean more fun and vibrant alternate costumes. I echo the sentiments for a Dr. Mario skin.

    1. So, there are a bunch of Japanese things in the games the rest of the world wouldn’t know. Can the American audience not have one piece of their Nintendo history?

  4. Costumes are debatable but the graphics do look sharp whether you think that is important or not… but love it when gameplay starts to match cut scenes or intros like the Wii U games have so far

  5. I feel like the USA costume would’ve been more fitting on Captain Falcon….but he’s not even confirmed yet…. :[

  6. You can add a whole bunch of shit to the 3DS version but you cant add skins for the U??? Anyways I guess there is always project M (WII U version) later on if someone can mod it later.

    1. Shut the hell up with that Project M bull shit. Literally the worst thing to happen to Super Smash Bros.

  7. I could have swore Sakurai said he wouldn’t be adding alt. Costumes. Ah well, glad he reconsidered:)

  8. The Light Suit looks pretty awesome! That’s what I like to see from these alt costumes and if looks very solid. Almost like a Pacific Rim robot, but handheld

  9. I like the Samue one, even if it isn’t a perfect light suit replica it does look great for her theme in this game and still screams “light suit.”

    I think the Mario one would be cool if the flag theme changed depending on what country you are in. Otherwise… I don’t see why it’s needed outside of the US version.

  10. I can’t help to notice that most of the people who hate it are not US citizens and those who love it are obviously US and slag people who hate it. I don’t care about the costume to be honest I don’t even plan to buy the game but it’s interesting to read how people react.

      1. No it’s does not, I love street fighter, king of fighter, Mortal Kombat, Dragon ball z fighting games (from SNES areas) and old 2D fighting /beat them up game but smash bro it does not do it for me. I played the game cube and the wii version (i even own a hacked copy) I found that game boring.

        People have different taste and in a way it’s good and I would not slag people who love that game. as I would not slag people who love COD or FIFA unless they start slagging me off.

        Saying that I like to see people expressing their love/excitement for a game even if I don’t like the game (i.e. smash bro or star fox).

    1. Did the other countries have their own version of NES Open Tournament Golf? Legit question I’m asking.

      1. I don’t think you understand what I’m saying…. have you seen the cattoon show? I doubt it through because if the mushroom kingdom.

    1. Because the game it game from appealed to the very patriotic American Nintendo fans from the old days. XD

  11. just yesterday I was thinking how the light suit would make a good alternative costume for Samus and well look at that, now give zero suit Samus an alternative costume and it’ll be all good.

  12. Why did they have to do a costume that screams U.S.A? I’m from the United States, and this is just ridiculous XD Can we have a hammer suit alternate costume or something, please Nintendo?

  13. This better just be a damn recolor of the Power Suit. I want the actual god damn Light Suit, Sakurai! This is the first time I’ve been disappointed by something revealed for SSB4. Bleh. The Mario alternate is cool, though. Dr. Mario would have been way better, though.
