This week was an exciting week in Super Smash Bros. news, as we saw a brand new screenshot that hints at a Super Mario Galaxy level, featuring Kirby. In addition to that, Princess Peach was announced as a playable character and several new screenshots of her moves have been shown off, including a new move that seems to include her crown.

Check out the full gallery below and let us know what you think about these brand new screenshots and stay tuned next week for another round up of Super Smash Bros. screenshots, as they’re released daily.

    One does not simply play SSB as Peach.

    • Farespokemon

      Play with her in melee…SHES REALLY POWERFUL

      • Jan

        True! But there still too much pink for me 😀

        • bizzy gie

          That’s why there’s color change.

        • Jon

          is it the same with jigglypuff and Kirby? too much pink to play them too?

    • Rick van der Linde

      It’s my main character and she’s just wrecking everything on her path of destruction. It’s a miracle how Bowser can capture her every Mario game, he’s nothing compared to that pink demon from the depths of hell.

  • Arthur Jarret

    The bottom left picture… that might be her reveal movie.

    It would be great if Bowser was laughing, mario is about to rescue her and then… she turns around and just smacks Bowser out of the area with her frying pan – leaving Mario out of the equation.

    (Although… why would her reveal movie be in a metroid stage?)

  • Merrfn

    Amazing. I can’t stop feel the tingly sensation of hype in anticipation for the lineup of games Nintendo shall be providing us with in 2014. Smash bros screenshots tip me over the edge.

  • Lil J Moore

    So many things wrong. Where do I start at #5 or #7?

  • Thomas Fitzgibbon

    I want to play as BLASTOISE!!!

  • bizzy gie

    Kirby is KING!

    I’ll destroy all with him!

    • Arthur Jarret

      Kirby will destroy the world one day. Please stop feeding him – or we’ll all be doomed!

      (I made the pic in Colors! 3D)

      • 00EpicGamer00

        …Did Kirby swallow a Chain Chomp?

      • CMB

        We have villager though!

  • CEObrainz

    Everything is so pretty in HD, I mean the other iterations were okay, but it really is easier to keep on looking when the lines are all crisp and there is more detail. Especially on Peach’s Gloves…..

    • Daniel Carvalho

      When you think of HD with other companies, the only thing that comes to mind is textures in 1080p. But when Nintendo makes it HD, we can see a care with the elements that compose the visual elements that goes far beyond just HD. That’s why I love Nintendo so much. The game looks so beautiful, instead of simply sharp.

      • CEObrainz

        It’s one of the primary reasons I think why Nintendo games take so long to develop.

        • TaintedXGamer

          is that a bad thing? 🙂

          • CEObrainz

            Nope, if anything it allows you to treasure the game more. Especially with the Smash Bros series which comes out once per console.

  • Peach is one of the worst characters of Super Smash Bros

  • Rukiafan Rukiachan

    Looks kid ikarus is a masochist!

  • Wiiluigi

    First column third picture down. Why is Peach holding her crown? Do her powers come out of there or is she holding it to not drop it. lmao. Also check out third column third picture. Did I miss something?

    • Josiah Parsons

      I think she is about to pwn someone with said crown. as for the hearts? your guess is as good as mine.

      • 00EpicGamer00

        I think the hearts might be a taunt. Or, it’s one of her moves and the hearts are the after effects.

      • Wiiluigi

        Maybe one of her special moves makes her happy. 😛

  • Josiah Parsons

    the PilotWings stage looks Epic!

  • Yoshiwhirlwind

    Peach’s forward air is my favorite move in Smash next to her float of course. The flash when she swipes at you is her crown, talk about bling.

  • marth175

    her crown attack is not new, that’s her forward air attack.

  • Jack5221

    The game is coming together nicely!

  • Toadlord

    Glad you decided to use the idea, Ashley 😉

  • TULFich

    AS much as I am waiting for this hell of a game!! the dev team has a lot of work to do with the character model´s articulation influence, some movements look just wierd. and the attack effects, seem to be a bit invasive. But I expecti it to be an excellent game for next year, and the years I´ll be playing this 😀


    Hey, could some of you guys check out my Wii U website?

    Thank you.

  • jreed3842

    The crown move isn’t really new. Her forward aerial movie in Melee and Brawl is the crown smack attack.
    But since Sakurai mentioned “refreshing” her move set, I feel like the move could do something new and different! Who knows?! All I know is that I’m excited!

  • MysticDude97

    Peach, if U can do this, why can’t U save Urself from Bowser?

  • Alex

    nice n64

    • Merlio Brossi

      Sempre più ridicolo. Continua così che tanto da ti hanno già bannato e su IGN la strada è quella.

  • TaintedXGamer

    o.o is that her ribbon from M & S at the olympics?! Sweet! Peach was one of my mains in Brawl, She gonna be in my mains to use once More, Can’t Wait!! 😛
