This privilege will be granted to whoever wins the annual Smash Bros Invitational Tournament. But I have to agree with the critics, if there's any chance that Nintendo can remove or alter this costume before the release date, it is imperative that they do so. You have been randomly chosen to take part in a brief survey. Nothing about that has really changed in Other M, however I will say I was always of the understanding that Nintendo tried to make her the one female character in video game history that wouldn't be sexed up and made a sex icon.
She's not showing skin at all, just a tight plastic looking suit. Removed original first paragraph, inappropriate. Brawl, Other M , and her hair is long. To grab their attention, Nintendo had to make an attractive character.
Well, because her visual designers hail from Japan! Reprogram the game so only one person on earth can unlock the Zero Suit at any given time. On a more serious note, as pointed out above, unattractive doesn't sell as well. Go ahead and make her buck naked. Samus Aran's hot sexy bod is an honor you earn through effort and dedication, not given freely on the character select screen! That, dear reader is what's wrong with the new design in Smash Bros. As a lifelong Nintendo fan I am shocked and disappointed by the recent reveal that Samus Aran's already sexualized Zero Suit costume in Smash Bros. The Metroid series was designed for teens.
I've certainly never had a problem with the way Samus was presented, even in Other M it certainly wasn't on par with more infamous examples of overtly sexualised characters. Understand this stoic Nintendo bounty hunter's story, where she came from and how she became the complete bad ass we know. You think I wanted to get carsick in the back of a minivan trying to 100% Metroid Fusion in under two hours? Since it was for teens, they gave her a light blue suit to cover up her body. So they created Samus, a dangerous babe. I mean, movies like Transformers 2 Revenge of the Fallen just always have to have Megan Fox slammed on the cover. After all, the only people who get to see her will be the best players in the entire world and a few million people watching on twitch.
Other than Other M and Brawl if you want to count that , you rarely see Samus out of her suit, and even then it's just a quick shot. Her combat skills combined with her athleticism and Arm Cannon have seen her through countless missions. When Super Metroid was first released in America I would sit in the den, copy of Nintendo Power in my lap, and try to get through the game as quickly as possible, oftentimes failing miserably. And I can't really see Samus' looks really doing much for sales.
I guarantee that this will bring Smash Bros rocketing to the forefront to the e-sports community as well. Samus has C cup breasts, a skin-tight body suit that shows off her ass in all games, Zero Mission, Smash Bros. All this without asking anybody to bring up gamefaqs on their dial-up modem after they heard a rumor that you can play as her in a bikini in Zero Mission if you find a secret room. Of course, it could just be that the reason this didn't bother me is because I'm just a big perv! Samus manages to be very attractive while still not flaunting it. She's no more hot to me than Joanna Dark.
It requires sharp reflexes, spatial reasoning, and abstract puzzle solving skills that are not fully developed for the average 11 year-old. Not that I have a problem with this, videogames are after all a means of fantasy and wish fulfillment. It was unknown to the player Samus is a female until the end of the first Metroid, so there goes that theory. She has been genetically modified, eye candy is appealing, and all of that. When Retro made Samus look attractive but i. Then they added the varia suit on top of that so teens would beat the game quickly and see Samus again.
Thankfully there is a solution. The Samus Aran amiibo figure is available exclusively in the Metroid series 2-pack set. The Power Suit she wears is a product of their technology. Since the teens beat it quickly beacuse of that, they would quickly buy the next one and the next and so on.

Added a few inches to the bust, hemmed in the torso for a more striking hip-to-waist ratio, gave her some high-heeled shoes and he even took the Zero Suit itself and turned it into blue bodypaint. To be specific, male teens.

Even in Metroid and Super Metroid she's stripped of her armor and wearing nothing but undies.
Personally I don't mind the way Samus looks. I'm glad they chose to depict her the way she looks. I think her image fits, she's attractive yet not so much that it takes away from the seriousness of the games. What I was shooting for was a pixelated drawing of a tight butt from space.
