It's nice, right? Switching around the colors of some of these new characters may end up switching their gender. If they can talk, their voices get changed to go along with their new gender.
But what I should've known already is that the Ice Climbers technically did the exact same thing first.
In Melee, the last 2 colors in this lineup made Nana the controller leader, and Popo the following CPU.
The same thing happens in Brawl with the 2nd, 4th, & 6th colors here, except their artwork in Brawl always had Popo leading and Nana following.
Sakurai allowed more characters than just Wario to have alt outfits, AND allowed more than just the Ice Climbers to swap genders. Marth was originally going to get both at once in regards to Lucina.
The main differences is that the new genderswaps always keep their same name, and don't have to rely on a twin following them around to further confirm their own gender and their own name. Also, according to Smash 4, both genders (or at least those of the Wii Fit Trainer, so far) can use the same colors for themselves.
Food for thought.
