Mario has caught the patriotic bug in the new Super Smash Bros. for the Wii U. One of his alternate costumes decidedly shows which country he's rooting for, and -- no -- it's not Japan. Revealed via the official Smash Bros. Twitter page, the outfit sees him wearing the red, white and blue colors of the American flag. Taken together with his dungaree/shirt/hat combo, we think even the Tea Party would find the new look a bit over the top. In case you didn't know, this is not the first time that the princess-saving, Bowser-fright plumber has donned such a nationalistic outfit. He wore something similar in Open Tournament Golf for the NES: All of this makes us wonder -- has Mario has been an Italian American all this time, rather than Japanese of Italian decent? His ridiculous accent makes it hard to tell. Also shown in the image is a new, metallic silver outfit for Samus, which is a lot easier on the eyes.
