The lights are on
We know Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Toad are all playable in Super Mario 3D World, but a new video today reveals that Super Mario Galaxy's Rosalina will also be a playable character.
The video also showcases other new facts and modes about the game. Some are expected, like the use of the Wii U's touch screen and mic, speed run levels, and new bosses, but there are a number of surprises. Super Mario 3D World will feature foot races (with a Mario Kart theme!), dedicated Captain Toad levels, special top-down stages, and access to the original Mario Bros. multiplayer arcade game. You can check out the full video below to see all the new reveals, as well as how they look in action.
Super Mario 3D World is coming to Wii U November 22, the same day as the release of The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds for 3DS, and the Launch of the Xbox One.

My hype for this game has crashed through the ceiling. It looks so pretty and so much fun!!!!
Rosalina as a playable character is the best thing to hear.
Have not heard from her in the game for awhile since SMG.
At first i thought this game was gonna be boring because all the worlds looked the same and the focus on the cat thing wasn't very interesting... now I'm very interesed c:
My hype for this game cannot be contained!!
Dangit, I wish I could afford a Wii U. Anyone here wanna buy me one?
Rosalina = AWESOMENESS!!!
Awesome! Rosalina is great!
Can't say this makes me more excited for the game, but a larger roster in a platforming game is always welcome as far as I am concerned. Outside of Mario Party and Kart games, we rarely see any extra characters besides Mario, Luigi and the Toads.
Looks like this is going to be robust as hell, good to see they are offering a lot outside of the just the main adventure. Its like Sakurai designed this game.
I am prioritizing Zelda above this game.
We need more characters!
Wonder why Rosalina would decide to randomly show up ;) She's like a less perky, less obnoxious Peach.
But anyway, great variety.
