Most in-depth alt costume we've seen so far in Smash Bros. I expect Villager and Pokemon Trainer to follow suit with female versions. Hooray for generically named characters!

YES! I always prefered to have a male trainer in WiiFit, and I was hoping that the male version was going to be presented in Smash. Good going, Sakurai.

For a moment I thought this was going to be a separate character...

Totally called this. Wii Fit Trainer and Villager aren't strictly a single gender, they're just commonly seen by the female/male counterparts respectively. Expecting to see a Female Villager reveal soon.

Female Trainer is the best Trainer

More alternate skins are a go? Alright. I hope there's lots but there will probably only be a few.

Still gonna play the girl, but this is great news. I vaguely expected it, but then didn't when Sakurai was all THERE'S NO COSTUMES IN THIS GAME.

So I guess there are.

Assuming he doesn't pull a Wario, I expect this for Villager and a potential Pokemon Trainer, if still in.

This opens up a new door, but it may not.

Speaking of Wario, I wonder if Male Wii Fit Trainer will have alternate colors like Wario.

Here's hoping other characters get alt costumes, too. A female Villager would be neat, and incredibly simple to do.

Dr. Mario could be a re-skin of Mario rather than a separate character, Lucina could be a reskin for Marth. Daisy a reskin for Peach, etc.

They could easily represent a ton of extra characters without needing to build new characters from scratch.

Not keeping my hopes up for this, of course, but...ya know.

Really happy about this, not just to see the Male one, but that there WILL be special costumes. ^^ Though, it's not confirmed that any more characters will, but I do expect at least some. And some people hate it, but I do want there to be costumes that are other characters (with their own voices).

'Costumes' I want.
Mario = Dr. Mario
Peach = Daisy
Bowser = Dry Bowser
Link = Any other adult Link design
Zelda = SS Zelda
Ganondorf = Melee Ganondorf design
Olimar = Any other Pikmin character
Villager = Female Villager
Marth = Lucina
Toon Link = ALtTP Link
Pikachu = Female Pikachu
Lucario = MegaLucario (unless it's a Final Smash... or if Lucario isn't even in the game!)

And so on. ^^ I doubt we'll get that much, but the more costumes the better imo.

I'm gonna be a killjoy and say this, among few others are exceptions.

Why? because they share names.

Link
Villager
Wii Fit Trainer
Pokemon trainer
etc

there's definitely room for more, and I think there might be more, but don't go expecting Daisy over Peach anytime soon.

EVERYONE misquote him on that...
That was a reply to the question: "When you talked about customization of the character, do you mean we will be able to customize their costumes, like changing their hats"... Alas I have proof of my claims now!

That's great. I'm personally all about multiple versions of every character where it is appropriate.

This was to be expected, personally at least, it would be pretty dumb to put the female trainer and just plain leave the male trainer out.

After this, if they add back Pokemon Trainer and don't have Leaf be an alternate costume...

Well, that's very much what they did with Pokemon Trainer. But you know, since it's Red, everybody just likes to ignore the issue. :roll:

I don't quite understand why people think it's a good idea for completely different characters to be alt costumes of other characters. For instance, Daisy being an alt costume of Peach makes absolutely no sense, given they are different characters with different attributes. The only thing they have in common in general body build.

For WFT or Villager, it makes sense, because they aren't really characters as much as generic avatars, and to the player, they are virtually the same.

I'm hoping Sakurai DOESN'T pull alt character costumes, because I think it's ridiculous. =P Either include the character as a character, or not at all. No character deserves to be demoted to an alt costume of somebody else, no matter how insignificant they are.

You're talking about this for the Super Smash Bros. series, where things don't have to make sense. It doesn't make any sense for Toon Link and Link to exist at the same time, either, but I don't see anybody complaining about that one.

Super Smash Bros. amounts to being a fanservice series... Seeing your favorite Nintendo characters getting to fight each other. I can not see how alternate costumes even begins to go against the point of the series. In fact, I think it does nothing other than further it.

And I just wanna see Dry Bowser playable. He's so badass. XD

What I'd really like to see... classic Link. We've never seen him modeled in 3D based on the old style artwork.

Can't wait to see female Villager then. <3

Here comes the creepy fan art...


As for Daisy in Smash 4, she shouldn't be an alternative costume to Peach. Since Daisy's a tomboy, she should be different from Peach, hopefully having different moves from her (like Luigi is to Mario) me thinks. Also, she's the best.

Now the people who ******* about not having enough females in the game so The Villager should be female can shut the **** up.

Odds are that you can swap genders on these two.

There's a huge difference between wanting more female characters, and wanting female alternates for the "avatar" characters. Of course, the first will very likely advocate the second, but the reasoning behind advocating the second is much, much stronger.

They're avatar characters, and have female versions in their games.This also applies to Pokemon. If we get male Wii Fit Trainer, but not female Villager, and Leaf as an alternate costume of Pokemon Trainer, even I will feel that's unfair (to put it lightly).
