Super Smash Bros.

Super Mario Galaxy’s Rosalina Coming To Super Smash Bros.

Rosalina is making her way from the Comet Observatory to the battlegrounds of Super Smash Bros. The powerful princess was announced during this morning’s Nintendo Direct.

Rosalina fights with Luma at her side, giving the other Nintendo characters a worthy foe. Rosalina has slowly been making her way through the Nintendo library, joining the race in Mario Kart and even appearing as a bonus unlockable character in Super Mario 3D World.

You can see her in action below. You can also check out the full Nintendo Direct presentation here.

  • Cool. I was hoping that she wasn't just going to be Peach with a different skin. Nice to see some diversity between the two of them.

  • Sweet! Glad to see another new character finally! Curious about what other new characters we see before it releases.
  • This was a really cool trailer. At first I thought Kirby was in MArio KArt.
  • She kinda reminds me of the Viola character from the latest Soul Calibur (are there 5 now?). You know the one with the energy ball that kinda just hangs out, super broken character at times. I see what your doing Namco Bandai. I'm watching you.

  • I don't think I can groan loud enough. There are already too many Mario characters in the damn game. Might as well call it Super Mario Fighting Brothers.
  • I can't wait for all the complaints I'm going to see about this not being Shulk or Chrom.
  • Her playstyle looks like a cross between Zelda and Peach.
  • Well that's disappointing. Maybe they'll add Koopa Troopa in as a playable character as well. I'd really like some more diversity here...
  • We need Bayonetta and Wonder Red in this game and that trailer was hecka adorable.
  • Rosalina has been growing on me lately.

    She could be good. She looks neat. And its nice to see new characters.

    I just really hope they bring back Mewtwo.

  • Well, the trailer was cool. I definitely wasn't expecting any SSB announcements, and I stand corrected on statements I made in previous comment sections. That said...can't say I'm disappointed. Rosalina has some interesting fighting mechanics that look similar to Zelda's. NOW, we just need some newcomers from a non-Mario/Zelda game. Like, for real.
  • Out of all of the characters Nintendo has ever created, WHY did they have to put Rosalina!? I think that they should've put somebody else instead of her or just announced her with some better character. Also, why is Kirby in that trailer?
  • Rosalina=this gen's Waluigi.
  • Rosalina > Peach. I agree with anyone saying that this game still needs some Platinum Games love though.

  • I think Rosalina is an excellent addition to Super Smash Bros.

  • This is cool. Her fighting style looks like it could be kind of tricky -- both to use, and to fight against. I like that -- not that I ever plan on getting a WiiU, but...still. Neat.


  • I've been waiting for you, Rosalina! That was a pretty good intro for her. I loved the part where she and Link were waving their wands. XD
