    Many of us had hoped that each character would come with their own set of costumes, rather than change colors. You know, Mario could be Dr. Mario instead of...erm...Blue Mario.

    However, after the numerous videos seen today, its become apparent that these hopes are in vain. In one of the videos, Yoshi was shown changing colors from Green to Pink to Yellow on the character select screen. Of course, many things will change before Brawl's launch, but until then it seems as though we'll still be getting colors rather than costumes.

    You guys as dissapointed as me? What are your opinions?

    I don't know what the point of costumes is in this game, maybe it makes it more appealing to look at and gives your character more identity but it's just more work for them. and not a necessity. This thought didn't cross me though, it was nice with Soul Calibur and everything so they still might do it...

    But, it's not like I'll just drop dead to the thought of not having a costume option.

    If you read this article:
    http://wii.ign.com/articles/826/826602p1.html
    it says that Link can change to Dark Link as a costume change, so there is still hope.
    Here's a direct quote from the above article:

    ^I did read that quote and assumed that Link had simply taken a black color change.

    There is nothing unique about Dark Link except color, which is why he could be integrated.

    remember king(or should i call you leve? hmm..) That was only a demo. Now since their having extra time. their probably going to look into suggestions like this to see if its possible. now they might include a shop where you can buy trophies and stickers. their is a small chance they will do that. but mabye they might make the costumes just for looks, and not for you know. diffrent abilities. causing different FSA's

    Well in one video there was pickachu with goggles on. Remember that that was only a demo. There could be costumes later on.

    True, that. However, I think they'll be adding new costumes, considering they have 2+ months to get this **** done. I mean honestly, Nintendo owes it to themselves to make one of the greatest games in history. The little things count too. Ammirite?

    I do understand your position on this though, LevesqueIsKing.

    You have to remember that the game shown was a demo. Sakurai i'm sure was careful in what he put in item, character, stage, pokeball, AT, and costume wise. I don't think that he wanted to get rid of characters like roy, pichu, and doctor mario with alt costume at a private conference in japan. It's probaly just to mean for him. My guess is the only way we'll know if they got cut is when all of the dojo characters have been announced.


    But I did hear that in one vid that pikachu had a costume change that used pichu's goggles.

    haha, the man of a thousand names. yes, I too am hoping that Sakurai purposefully stopped them from changing costumes, its the only strand of hope we have. However, why would he take the time to allow the characters to change colors then? Doesn't make sense.
    It would look cool, much better than changing tints. Why the hell would Mario have a Luigi costume? I don't appreciate your last comment either, so either provide to the thread or gtfo.
    Thanks. I've heard quite a bit about you. Are you back to stay?
    He isn't wearing anything, he's simply a different color. White, or Pink maybe? Sorry, I'm color blind.

    Probably the best answer for that is "hopefully". I can't really promise more than that because I have a really busy schedule this year, but I hope to stay. "I'm staying lik 4evar" would be the ideal answer, but you know.

    Erm...I love SSBB.
