New Super Smash Bros. 4 images include Samus in shorts.
Game director Masahiro Sakurai shared the pictures on the Nintendo forum Miiverse.
“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!” he said.
Another screenshot he shared showed the 3DS version.
“You can use the same outfit variations in both the 3DS and Wii U versions,” he explained.
Another recent screenshot from Sakurai showed a treasure chests.
“The treasure chests that appear in Smash Run are very important. Not only do they give you stat boosts, but they also give you custom parts (the bag on the right) and Smash Run powers (the bag on the left). You should pick these up and use them in the next battle!!”
“However, watch out for Mimicuties disguised as treasure chests. Run away! RUN AWAY!!” he added.
And Sakurai also shared a picture of one of the Assist Trophies.
“‘No, I’ll just beat you within an inch of your life!’ Demon Lord Ghirahim makes an appearance in Smash Bros!! He’s an Assist Trophy, so he could conceivably back up Link, too,” Sakurai said.
The 3DS version of the upcoming game is slated to drop on October 3 while the Wii U version is slated to be released sometime this winter.
