Rosalina Announced for Upcoming Super Smash Bros.

By on December 18, 2013 at 6:30 am

During this morning’s Nintendo Direct, it was announced that Rosalina will be joining the cast of the company’s upcoming Super Smash Bros. title for Wii U and 3DS. The Super Mario Galaxy character is accompanied by one of the series Lumas, which she appears to use in her main moves as well as separately as a puppet character, allowing for some interesting offense.

We’ll keep you updated as more becomes available but, for now, feel free to check out the announcement video along with some new images below.

    Oh boy. Here come the suggestive Miiverse posts…

  • NyuBomber

    I like it!

  • R.D. Covenant

    She’s like the ice climbers except with a stand/built in desynch.

    • Exy

      Her ability to apparently draw items to herself seems kinda off, though.
      I imagine that she has lower damage tolerance like Peach once did to
      counter it.

    • anthony apduhan

      Does this mean Sakurai has solved his problem about the difficulty on putting the Ice Climbers issue?

      • R.D. Covenant

        Most likely yes.

  • airco

    She almost looks like a puppet character, like BB’s Carl or JJBA’s D’Bo. Interesting.

    • datagram

      Almost? Try definitely.

  • Chooch

    Wow. She looks like she might be ridiculously strong.

  • ragnarok954

    To be honest, I thought Kirby was confirmed for Mario Kart 8 after first seeing the trailor on Nintendo Direct.

    • Chooch

      Same. It was kinda disappointing at first.

    • Joshua Tiberius L

      i thought they were announcing kirbys air ride 2

    • What?

      • CptPokerface

        Apparently this guy is a…troll with a chip on his shoulder about Peach. Posted the same comment on Siliconera

          STFU that pink whore killed mah waifu Zelda in Death Battle!

          • CptPokerface

            Yeah. So i’ve heard. Don’t worry champ. Theres other princesses out there to put on your body pillows

          • Guest

            Yeah like FAT PRINCESS! she is a human pillow and she is not a whorey bitch unlike her!

  • No.1 Important

    Where’s Daisy?

    • metaxzero

      Driving karts

      • Pooh Hardy

        and crying herself to sleep

  • Jason DonkeyKong Budzi

    Final Smash??

  • Felipe Pereira

    it was obvious to me that she would appear because she was in super mario 3d world. but looks cool so far, like a puppet character 😀

  • Snow Loss

    So the Super Mario franchise now has seven representatives (six if you want to discount Wario)…

    Still though her gameplay looks neat even if i am getting a lot of Olimar and Ice Climber type vibes from it.

    Looks like it’s also possible that we’ll get a Rainbow Road stage which, if it follows its roots, is sure to cause some eye strain.

  • Aiddon

    looks like she’s the Carl/Relius character if we’re using Blazblue lingo here.

  • Trevor Clarke

    Brace yourselves… the salty victims of Luma edge guards are coming…

  • Richard N


  • Simply Chun-believeable ^_~ ♥♥

    She’s gorgeous! Now I can cross her off of my wishlist. I’ll sub her, because nobody comes before Peach. Kirby is too cute though. Especially with DK poking him. 🙂

  • VicViper

    welp, fuck everything, Mario has the FLUDD. I don’t know why they bothered to keep that shoehorned piece of shit in Mario’s movelist.

  • MrJechgo

    Does this also confirm a Rainbow Road stage? SWEET! ^_^
    Only downside is that I’m still waiting for characters from new series to be announced. Y’know:
    – Shulk from Xenoblade Chronicles
    – Zael from The Last Story
    – Aeron from Pandora’s Tower
    – Andy from Advance Wars
    – Saki from Sin & Punishment
    – Isaac from Golden Sun
    – Ray from Custom Robo
    – Takamaru from Castle Murasame
    Oh, and Yoshi. Seriously, is it so hard to announce him alongside the original characters? He will end up being announced late twice, first being for Brawl.

    • I. M. Schrobb

      Ya know… somehow, an Advance Wars character doesn’t seem totally unlikely to me….

    • Sentsuizan

      Yoshi might just not be ready for a trailer yet.

  • I. M. Schrobb

    Princess Peach? No… THIS is my waifu.
