Little Mac’s Pink Sweatshirt Is An Alternate Costume In Super Smash Bros.

By Ishaan . July 2, 2014 . 12:59pm

Another one of Little Mac’s costumes in Super Smash Bros. has been revealed. Director Masahiro Sakurai showed off a pink sweatshirt costume for the character on Miiverse earlier this week. The costume on the right looks like a new reveal, too.


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


Super Smash Bros. will be available this October for Nintendo 3DS. The Wii U version will follow sometime this holiday season.

    So i guess we’ll get three types of costumes. Re-skins, new models, and character model replacers like the male Wii Fit Trainer. NICE.

  • Shippoyasha

    Uh oh. I have that politically incorrect song playing in my mind right now!

    • DeadLineDance

      Please tell me it’s a certain song that became popular on YTMND like ten years ago…
      (if it appeared somewhere else, I’M SORRY, that’s just where junior-high-me heard it for the first time and got the giggles)

        Has anyone seen my bike? I can’t seem to find it. I was gonna ask Doc Louis, but I can’t seem to find him either.

    I wonder if this means Peach will get a Daisy model instead of just the colors?

    • Zurashii

      I don’t think they would change an entire character, just their outfit.

      • wii fit trainer male/female and villager male/female have already disproven that.

        • Yuuki

          They haven’t disproven anything,their alts are just different versions of them,they’rer still the same person. Peach and Daisy are two separate people unlike Male and Female WFT,and Villager.

          • the main point is that they are using different models, and considering that daisy was a pallete swap before, it is not unfathomable that they would make a model for daisy.

        • Zurashii

          That’s only because Wii Fit Trainer and Villager are unisex names, you’re still playing as either Wii Fit Trainer or Villager whether or not it’s the male or female model. They won’t be having a new Daisy model for Peach because she won’t be Peach anymore, she will be Daisy. You can say the same for Mario’s Wario/Luigi palette, and Luigi’s Waluigi palette.

    Megaman.EXE, Megaman.EXE, Megaman.EXE.

    That’s all I want.

    • oh man, im actually trying to play through battle network atm and i would love this too.

      • chroma816

        My favorite megaman series, bar none.

    • Göran Isacson

      That would be cool, but I wonder… so far the models haven’t been too different in height, and the model we’ve seen of Megaman compared to the model we’ve seen represent Megaman.EXE would indicate they’re too different…

      Though by that logic, a Protoman model-swap may not be out of the question…

      • Arrei

        It’s also always possible they’d just change Mega Man’s textures and models a bit to give him a costume based on X, .EXE, or other Mega Men.

        • chroma816

          I mean, I guess that’d be something. And something is good.

  • mojack411

    He actually looks a hella lot more intimidating in that pink sweatshirt than he normally does haha. I’m really looking forward to the different skins each character will have in this game since a lot of them seem to be more than mere pallet swaps.

  • Jonathan Tse

    i hope the alternate costumes also have different colors. I’d like a purple/navy blue one for a Takamura style Mac.

    • God
      • Shippoyasha

        Funny thing is, most of Little Mac’s moves in this game seems to come straight out of Ippo. Gazelle punch, Bryan Hawk uppercut, heart-stopper/corkscrew, strafing 1-2. Probably more on top.

        • Jonathan Tse

          it’s not a surprise that Punch-Out!, Street Fighter,Tekken, Ippo, and many other series all share techniques, as they are all taken straight from boxing history. The Ippo manga makes that abundantly clear.

          • Mastery

            Yeah that’s what I was about to say. Ippo didn’t invent boxing.

          • Shippoyasha

            It’s not really just that, it’s the entire overt flair as well. The exaggerated Gazelle punch and Bryan Hawk punch is VERY distinct and it’s very Ippo-esque. Real life fighters don’t have that kind exaggerated movement quite like Ippo.

          • God

            You do know there have been tons of other Boxing mangas before Hajime No Ippo, right? All of them exaggerate the moves, and Punch Out has been doing it since the very first game.

          • SuperSailorV

            Thank you.

  • AuraGuyChris

    Well, this is a step in the right direction with Little Mac…

    Unlike how historically inaccurate Link’s and Rosalina’s published “outfits” and color schemes are.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    What I want…

    Mario: Dr Mario/ superstar saga outfit
    Weegee: Mr.L/ superstar saga outfit
    Peach: Dasiy with voice change/ Racer outfit
    Diddy kong: Dixie kong with voice change
    Zero Samus: her first zero suit with green hair
    Pacman: Pac women
    Rosalina: racer outfit *drool*
    Palutena: Pseudo-Palutena/ Medusa
    I could go on

    • Göran Isacson

      Dr Mario as an alternate outfit (and Mr L hell yes) would be oh so delicious.

    • God

      Please, do go on… And i need Shulk, and Ocelot if possible.

    • Fastchrone

      err… i think medusa and palutena have a different moveset. it would be interesting if they make dlc character of her (and other villain)

      racer outfit ftw

  • Yuuki

    I wish Marth would get brown hair with his Leif/White Color, and I need Ike to have his Vanguard outfit.

    • PragmaticSoul


      The only costume Marth should have is this fucking glorious Sigurd costume.

      I had an eyegasm when I first saw this. Project M too good.

  • Notquitesure?

    A steve fox (tekken) costume would be cool.
