Nintendo really should have based Samus' design off of this as soon as it published.


They did.
That was official artwork for Super Metroid.

Don't rock the boat. Don't even get in the boat! Just buy some ice cream and walk around the pier. But don't go in the bathrooms; they're filthy!

No it isn't it was some Nintendo Power writer who made it, and Nintendo Power isn't affiliated with Nintendo.

According to Nintendo Power back in the day, Samus Aran is 6'3" and weighs just shy of 200lbs without the armor.

Those boots likely add a couple of inches, and depending on how one measures (Varia shoulderpads and such), it's conceivable that she could reach 6'8" in armor.

Either way, Samus Aran is supposed to be an absolutely enormous amazon of a woman.

One more reason Other M was trash.

The explain to me why a big deal was made of Nintendo deciding to stop producing the magazine directly and having it go independent?

Also, for all those "NOT WRITTEN BY SUPERIOR NIHONGO" folks, I present the following corroborating evidence from the intro of Super Metroid:

Samus Aran absolutely dwarfs this man. She's always been a giant, right up until Sakamoto decided he needed to make a game about taking her down several pegs.
