For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past year, Smash Bros. Director, Masahiro Sakurai, has been showing off Smash Bros. glory by uploading a screenshot from the upcoming instalments for 3DS and Wii U nearly every day on MiiVerse… that’s a whole lot of visual content for your eyeballs! Today’s screenshot showcases an alternative costume of a certain newcomer in the Smash Bros. games… check out the image to find out who it is!

And this is what Sakurai had to say about the image:

Pic of the day. The pink sweatshirt looks really cool on Little Mac, so you can use that outfit in this game… How can a pink sweatshirt look so cool?

And for those who simply can not figure out who the character is, Sakurai posted a second comment for the image:

Looks like some of you noticed that this version of Little Mac wasn’t shown at E3. There are many things, like Link’s Skyward Sword tunic design I posted earlier, that haven’t been revealed yet.

Yes, it is Little Mac. And from this comment, it seems that this time alternate costumes will involve more than just different colours, like in previous games, but instead will be completely different attire. Here’s an example of another costume which Sakruai posted several days ago.


This image shows off Link’s alternate costume. Do you recognise it? It’s the outfit you start off with in Skyward Sword, the Skyloft Knight Academy Uniform!

Super Smash Bros. is set to be released on the 13th September 2014 in Japan, 3rd October 2014 in Europe and North America, and a day later in Australia for 3DS. The Wii U version is set to be released during Q4 2014.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
