Samus Cameo in "New" 3DS Commercial

Postby TheAccursedHunter01 » 09.29.14 12:18am

I can't find a topic appropriate enough to post this in, so I figured I'd make this its own topic. It is very brief, but Samus appears in this "New" 3DS commercial:

I find Samus' reaction to be hilarious:

This picture does a better job at showing what Samus looks like:

I have no idea exactly what this commercial is about(outside of the interchangeable 3DS face-plates), can someone fill me in?

On top of that Luigi looks like one smug asshole.

Diddy is happy, like always.
Donkey Kong's head doesn't look like a turd anymore as he is now becoming a banana.
The cartoon Zelda I hate only less than the CDi version looks like she's taking an awkward high school photo with clothes her parents picked out.
Animal Crossing sucks.
Bowser is all spiffy and going in for a job interview.
Yoshi is ready for the boat cruise back to his island.
Peach = worst mime ever.
Samus is so out of place even she doesn't know what the hell is going on.
Toad has that happy killer face on like he's about to choke someone.
And Luigi looks like such a smug asshole it makes me want to punch him in the face very very very hard.
Nice find :thumbsup:

Hmmmmmmmmm

*Puts on tinfoil hat*

Some of the character choices got me thinking. Zelda is represented in her Toon look and there are two animal crossing character. Toon Link appears as well, and Pikachu and Kirby are showcased, especially since there last games were on handhelds. And Donkey Kong and Diddy were have DKCR 3D on the 3DS. SO it seems obvious to me that majority of characters here also market handheld titles...

So I find it strange that they are even advertising Samus here, who hasn't had a handheld game in years...

*takes off tinfoil hat*


Eh, means nothing. :P

I'm kinda hoping the Other M Power Suit design isn't the new universal basic Power Suit for all future Metroid games. I'll agree with :YS: saying that it looks silly with any color other than yellow/orange/red. Hell, the Light Suit and Fusion Suit colors for Samus in SSB4 look so weird.

This is a great promotion for all those Metroid games playable on the New 3DS.
Suckers.

Surprised they didn't use Zero Suit Samus.

As funny as Samus is here, she doesn't beat Top Hat Link, Hipster Bowser, or Luigi Death Stare.

I think they didn't know what to do with her.

Everyone else has a legit different costume.. they just painted her limbs a different and added stars.
The only other who didn't get that much as DK.
