Samus gets a new outfit in Super Smash Bros. and oh boy photo
Samus gets a new outfit in Super Smash Bros. and oh boy
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The latest update from Super Smash Bros boss Sakurai details Samus and her new outfits. Blue and orange shorts and a small top, both of which were seen at the end of Metroid: Fusion and Metroid: Zero Suit, respectively. Here's what Sakurai had to say: 

"Looking at the number of days we have left for development, it would be an impossible task to create this... That's what I told my staff. But thanks to the determination of her female designer, these Zero Suit outfits got completed in time. From the ending of Metroid: Zero Mission, here's Samus in shorts!"

Interesting that Sakurai felt compelled to specify that the designer was one of his female staff members. Personally I would have loved an alt based on her Metroid: Fusion suit. Anyway, news about a videogame characters new outfits. Because videogames.

Nightmare Wizard turns out the lights in Super Smash Bros.

Here's a new Smash assist trophy, Nightmare Wizard. Let's let Sakurai explain. "Nightmare Wizard appears as an Assist Trophy! He will engulf the stage in darkness, and fighters will need to brawl blindly for a while. Look out for the effect before it goes dark, and play it to your advantage. Blinding and reversal effects even make the computer players mess up."
