Eleven days until Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS reaches the hands of those of us in the West. Today’s spotlight focuses on the one formally known as Princess Toadstool and the one that would constantly kidnap her, Princess Peach and Bowser.
Princess Peach was originally known as Princess Toadstool before she got her official name change to Princess Peach. Bowser, known as Koopa at the time (and still in Japan), would always kidnap the princess and Mario would be forced to rescue her and defeat Bowser. Both have been a part of the Mario Bros. franchise for many years. They even appear in Mario spin-off games like Mario Party and Mario Kart. Princess Peach and Bowser both made their Super Smash Bros. debut with Super Smash Bros. Melee. They have been a part of the games since then. Peach is known for her “Peach Bomber” a.k.a. her slamming her butt into people and occasionally sending them flying, which I find highly amusing, and for the fact that should could occasionally hit the opponent in the face with a frying pan. Bowser is known for his fire breath and him spinning inside his shell to recover. Princess Peach has always been one of my mains in the Super Smash Bros. games due to the fact that she’s floaty, light, and I can easily recover with her.
