Every character in Super Smash Bros. will have eight colour variations, director Masahiro Sakurai said over Miiverse last night. Sakurai used Samus to demonstrate the feature, showing off eight different colour schemes for her Varia Suit.
“Until now, you were only able to choose from four, or sometimes five or six colors for each character,” Sakurai wrote. “This time, though, all characters have eight colors to choose from! The first four color schemes for Samus are based off her Varia Suit, Fusion Suit, Gravity Suit from Super Metroid, and the Dark Suit.”
“And here she is in the color schemes of the Gravity Suit from Metroid Prime, Green Samus (a regular in the Smash series), the Light Suit, and Dark Samus. A total of eight colors,” He added.
In a third comment, Sakurai stated: “You can choose between four male and four female Villagers to play with. The designs for their faces and clothes are different. And here are the four Villagers we haven’t shown you yet.”
