Walking tall: Rosalina stands head and shoulders above Mario in latest Super Smash Bros. Wii U shots

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • January 1, 2014 at 1:03 p.m. PST
Rosalina is a tall character in Super Smash Bros. Wii U, but very light, according to Masahiro Sakurai. You can tell from the shot below that she's considerably taller than Mario, but since she sports an anti-gravity effect, she doesn't weigh a lot.

The other shots show Toad being held hostage, a roundup of yellow characters and a few more things. Check them all out below.

I think Nintendo and square enix should work something out to bring in Geno from super Mario RPG since he didn't make it to the N64 version.

Also to work on a new Super Mario RPG2 game! Its been so looooong for a sequel to come to life. I already have the update battle mechanics and ideas ready to go...

1. Just update the combat mechanics like in the first one, but make it more like dragon lagoon or Xeno gears fight style to add more combos.. also their own ultimate cinema special attacks.

2. Add in other special guest from different Nintendo games to help along and explore their worlds. Add A lot of exploration (with mini games & old school reference like in the first game.

3. Bring back some characters that didn't hardly get no love/mention in other games like Princess Shokora & Captain Maple Syrup (wario land 4) and Pauline (Mario vs donkey Kong series) etc.

4. Increase the cap level, add plus mode, harder mode and add in special outfits.

5. Upgrade the store limit in your inventory.

I known this post was off topic but it was fun to make. :)

Why is this news? Everybody that plays the two Super Mario Galaxy games already knows this.

I liked that trailer with them riding the karts. HOPEFULLY, we'll see cross over in mario kart, here's hoping that they add in Link, Kirby, Diddy Kong and Captain Falcon to Mario Kart 8!!

@10

They should put those characters in and call it "Mario Kart All-Stars!"

You can see the chain mail under Link's tunic. That is pretty cool.

Someone brought up Square Enix for Mario RPG and all I could think was Sora from Kingdom Hearts would be great in Smash Bros. Too bad that wouldn't happen though.

wasnt rosalina heavy in the games she's been playable?

The trailer might actually be a hint towards Kirby being in mario kart 8.

2 birds 1 stone kinda deal... I mean it IS possible, Kirby air ride is bad but it still exists and shows Kirby is capable of racing. And he was seen alongside other typical mario kart racers in the smash trailer

And think about it, technically diddy and funky have nothing to do with mario (though more to o with maio than kirby has anyway) but they were in the previous game, same with rob in mkds.

Sora would be great for Smash bros, but Disney been acting like a butt hole right now with all this taking stuff off the PSN/XBLA stores. Nintendo don't need that headache right now.

We all hope but otherwise it was all a ruse by Sakurai as he already told us in advance newcomers would get interaction trailers.

First off, Rosalina being in space means Kirby is bound to be there.
So here's a question, how do we put more characters Who are already confirmed for Smash bros, in the same area that is space?

The answer is Rainbow Road, and especially because we havent seen actual Mario Kart trailer in a pretty long time that the set up was perfect.

If he whacked her in the face with a turtle and ate some shrooms they'd be about the same height.

Also the shot with Peach, Toad, and Link is /fantastic/.
