In the new Super Smash Bros. game Samus will have a move that causes her to take off her clothes and pull out a whip.
Okay, not _all_ her clothes, but still. Not that the taking her clothes off thing is remotely new, but the _whip_ part certainly is! :) At least as far as i remember anyways. Has that actually shown up in any of the games that i either haven't played (some of the GameBoy ones particularly) or am just forgetting about?
(And here's the original source for the news for anyone who cares wasn't already aware of it.)
