Do you think that Sakurai doesn't UNDERSTAND how Other M was such a failure?

You'd think that with how badly Other M bombed that maybe he'd realize including the design of Samus from it in Super Smash Bros 4 might not be the ideal decision. It could be that he has little knowledge of Other M in general, and when someone from Nintendo came up to him and said, "Hey, why base Samus off her Other M iteration?", he didn't think much of it.

Your thoughts?
More villains need to be protagonists. BIS proves it can work.

I don't care what design they use in this game, just don't let the story of Other M rear it's ugly head.

Maybe the Japanese audience had a better reaction to it?
Besides, it's her armour, it's not like Smash has a huge narrative or anything, so relax, it's really not that big a deal he has chosen the Other M look, at all.
I'm sorry folks.
I just can't help my bad tastes.

It was better than any Prime game. Maybe he realizes how dumb of an opinion it is to hate on Other M.

I'm not certain whether or not you're trolling.

He won't change it, maybe tweak it a bit but no major changes. I highly doubt he doesn't know about Other M's reception, he just probably wanted to represent Metroid's newest entry and that's it.

Actually, Japan didn't like it much either.

I think it's simply an objective decision. As far as I can tell, Nintendo is considering Other M as canon and Metroid's last major game, regardless of consumer opinion. It then makes sense to model SSB4's Samus after Other M's.
T or F: This statement is false.

It's an indication that people at Nintendo aren't realizing the reason why it bombed. They might not think it's because of how bad Other M was, but because people just don't like Metroid games anymore.
