This is the Zero Suit Samus design from the new Smash Bros. How the mighty have fallen.

Just read about this redesign on Wario’s blog, but didn’t see the full-body image… WOW, are those heels fucking terrible(also tasteless as hell)

Added Samus’s previous design for the reference.


This is particularly upsetting since, as Dingo pointed out in a recent submission:

This is disappointing as Metroid was one of the first highly successful games to star an original female lead in a way that was inconsequential to gameplay and completely lacking in gender signifiers.

Samus is ~ 6’3”, 200lbs of space bounty-hunter whoopass.

Samus needs high heels like a barracuda needs a unicycle.
