In the latest Nintendo Direct on September 14, Nintendo announced a recently-teased Mario game — this time, a Princess Peach-focused game. Princess Peach Showtime features fun transformations that change how Peach looks and plays, with a release date announcement revealed. Peach has her own exciting adventure as she saves a theater production.
Princess Peach Showtime release date and trailer revealed
Although in a recent Nintendo Direct, we saw a teaser for an unnamed Princess Peach title, we can now put a name to the game. This Peach-centered game has the Princess save the Sparkle Theater from the wicked Grape and the Sour Bunch. Similar to how Mario typically transforms into different forms that give him powers, Peach has some transformations of her own. One has her adorn fighting attire with a sword in hand, while another turns her into a sleuth for clue-finding.
Throughout gameplay clips, we could see side-scrolling combat, mystery solving, timed minigames, and more interesting features. For now, we’re not sure how long each transformation lasts, or how many there are. From one of the final clips shown, we can see different rooms with icons above the doors, which makes it seem like there will be a hub world.
Perhaps each room you enter is a new level with a new transformation. What you’re doing all depends on which transformation Peach is in. If this title interests you, Princess Peach Showtime releases on March 22, 2024, on the Nintendo Switch. Preorders are now available through the eShop.
