Samus (サムス, Samusu), one of the characters revealed in the E3 2013 trailers, is a playable character in Super Smash Bros. 4. Samus is confirmed to retain her Special Moves Charge Shot, Bomb, and Missiles. She is also to retain her Final Smash, Zero Laser[1]. However, she will not transform into Zero Suit Samus after using this move, and Zero Suit Samus will return as a separate character. Her design is now based off her appearance in Metroid: Other M, as opposed to the previous three games where her design was primarily based on Super Metroid and the Metroid Prime appearances.
