Mario and Samus’ Alternate Costumes Looks So Good in Super Smash Bros For Wii U

**update: Samus design is based on the Federation Trooper design in Metroid Prime. The Osakan Drum Puppet has a likeness to Mario’s costume.

Like with Brawl, Sakurai will be providing daily updates on the development progress of Super Smash Bros For Wii U and Super Smash Bros For 3DS through Miiverse.

Today’s Pic of the Day is a screenshot of Samus’s and Mario’s alternate costume for Super Smash Bros For Wii U. There isn’t much more to say, but “hey don’t they look awesome”. I don’t understand Sakurai’s references with the Imperial forces and the Osakan drum puppet. I’ll come back with an update. But we do know Mario’s costume is from 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.
