Samus and Villager Color and Costume Variants Shown

It’s been a while since it had been revealed that the Villager would be available in both male and female gender, by switching costumes/color variants. Of course that wasn’t enough in Sakurai’s view, as he decided to maximize that by four times. On Miiverse, Sakurai revealed an image showing off that each gender of the Villager will have four costumes, each having unique shirts and hairstyles. The image can be seen here;

Alongside with this reveal, Samus’ eight costume variants were unveiled in the Miiverse post.  They can be seen here, alongside with Sakurai’s description of them.

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.

These are some great looking suits, especially the Light Samus and the Dark Samus costume. It can be clearly seen that Sora Ltd. arent just creating recolors, but full fledged alternative costumes that have a distinct look and feel to them. I truly do look forward to seeing what other alternative costumes will be in the game, and if they may actually mean more than just an aesthetic change.
