Rosalina Drives Into Mario Kart Arcade GP DX

By Spencer . December 18, 2013 . 2:20am

Rosalina from Super Mario Galaxy is entering another race. Nintendo and Namco Bandai added her to Mario Kart Arcade GP DX. Rosalina will race alongside Mario, Wario, Pac-Man, and Don-chan from Taiko: Drum Master. Like the other Mario Kart arcade games, Namco Bandai added some of their own characters as cameos.

Players can also unlock alternate costumes like Ice Luigi by scanning special codes. A code for Fire Mario can be found in the February issue of CoroCoro.

  • Arcana Wiz

    Rosalina is really becoming popular.. interesting.

    • Cazar

      Easily the best Mario character IMO.

      • PreyMantis

        No. Waluigi is the best Mario character! :P

        • Arcana Wiz

          No the best character is the bowser childs mother(s)!

    • Nintendo are treating Rosalina as the new Daisy. Next thing we know she’ll be introduced for Smash Bros. Most likely as an Assist Trophy instead of being an actual fighter, but they’ll still introduce her for it.

      OH MY GOD! I didn’t know! I was merely guessing! ^_^;

      • anthony apduhan

        Rosalina confirmed for Smash Bros. 4 and she will be playable…

        • Arcana Wiz

          damn! ninja’ed :P

        • I know. I face palmed as soon as I saw “Rosalina & Luma launch into battle!” but I never would’ve guessed she’d be playable.

      • Nightstar1994

        You called it!

      • Arcana Wiz

        And she was confirmed to be playable… funny.

    A Wii U compilation of all three Mario Kart arcade games? Pleeeease?

    • 하세요

      Honestly, I’d rather get Mario Kart 8. GP games are stiff and the courses are extremely short. Items are limited as hell. Maybe for the sake of using Don-chan, but I couldn’t play GP for more than a race or two per arcade visit.

      It’s a different experience, but if I’m going to play MK on an actual console, then I’m going with the real MK.

      • GH56734

        But the arcade Mario Kart games are the only ones still continuing the legacy and the spirit of the GC game.

      • s07195

        I tried playing Arcade GP, and you’re right… It’s nowhere near the quality of the main titles.

    • MasterScrub

      They’re fun to play in the arcade, but every console MK beats the arcade ones by miles.

  • At first I thought we were finally hearing some news about Mario Kart 8, but then I read Arcade…

  • MrJechgo

    They should really release it on the Wii U as a DLC game.

  • Cyrus

    Don Chan!!

  • grayson gee

    Lets see, this character has appeared in
    Mario Kart Wii
    Mario Kart 7
    Super Mario 3D World
    Something tells me Nintendo really likes using this character.


      Galaxy Princess Rosalina, do it!

    • anthony apduhan

      She is also confirmed in Smash Bros. 4 beware the wand though…

      • grayson gee

        I think that announcment confirms that Nintendo likes to use her.

    • Time Sage

      Add Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. 3D/U

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Stuff like this make me hope, that Mario Kart 8 some sort of DLC.

  • Spirit Macardi

    Great going, now just get Namco to add Klonoa as a racer and I will drop so many quarters into this game that the slot will explode.

  • XaviIniesta

    Happy to see Rosalina in more games. I really like that character.

  • Tonton Ramos

    Now Pac-Man for Smash Bros. 4 plz!
