Just when you thought gaming couldn't get any weirder and talk about holding back a character Nintendo has just dropped a blue turtle shell on us. Princess Peach isn't playable because she is too unique where as the characters playable on the roster Mario, Luigi, Toad all do and can have the same move set as Mario so the reason she is no where to be found is because of her animations and moves... are you kidding me Takemoto? Your telling me that we haven't seen a solid playable character because of what reason...?
"In Super Mario Bros 2, Princess Peach had her own unique moves and animation," Takemoto explained. "In this series, we want all the players to have the same moves and animations as Mario, and Princess Peach isn't suited for that."
You cant tell me that you just want to be in your own box and not think or work outside of it, you should be all over the place with playable characters and things like that. Only having Mario moves gets a little repetitive over a while especially with the game glorifying how multiplayer and 4 player gaming is where the game stacks up. Characters like Peach, Daisy, Boo, Bowser Jr. and hell even Bowser should all be given a chance and not "suited" for anything because they can't play like Mario. Although maybe in one respect she cant be found playable because she got kidnapped again....
