Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS just increased their roster by one as Princess Peach will rejoin the fray. Yes, it's near 2:00 in the morning here in North America, but that won't stop Nintendo from putting out news that should have Smash fans psyched. They'll each wake up in the morning and peruse the over ten new screenshots that have also been released. What secrets do they hold?
As far as Princess Peach's move-set, well, we can see in the screenshots that some moves will be returning and some are likely to be different. Her move where she shoves a defenseless Toad in the way of an incoming threat returns. Other moves include attacks with her crown and what appears to be a streamer or cloth. Then, as expected, the move where she leans over and sticks out her butt also appears to be back.
Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS, and yes Princess Peach will be appearing in both, are planned for release in 2014. The roster currently sits at 15 members including newcomers Mega Man, Wii Fit Trainer, and the Villager from Animal Crossing. Stay tuned for more roster announcements in the months to come. One last note... that's makes five Mario game characters on the roster (counting Donkey Kong). Come on, guys, how about some variety?
