Why did they think it would be silly to have Samus wear a purple Gravity Suit in Other M when Ridley is supposed to be super terrifying and he's a purple dinosaur like the illegitimate offspring of Barney and Spyro? Normally I don't care what color Ridley is as long as I get to kill him, but why does he get the purple and Samus doesn't? Samus deserves the purple! She doesn't mind looking silly! (Which she doesn't...)
Real talk tho, purple is a sweet colour. And the Gravity suit has never exuded anything but a sensation of sheer badassery, colour regardless. A on-and-off purple glow is far less rewarding that a whole visible outfit change.
At least Sakamoto seems to have overcome his thing about purple, or at least he trusted MercurySteam with it. And rightly so because they did the Gravity Suit the most justice it’s been given in the entire franchise probably. Seriously, those blue lights! The shape! The shoulders! I can’t get enough of it
