Nintendo have shared a new gameplay trailer for Super Smash Bros. on Wii U that shows Rosalina off as a playable character. You can watch the trailer below.



Additionally, Rosalina has been confirmed as a playable character on Nintendo 3DS as well. Screenshots of her and Luma—who will fight as a pair—can be found below.

    I think Sakurai will not have a problem on Ice Climber controls anymore…

    • Enzo

      I honestly thought, while watching the footage, that she is somehow the “fix” to the Ice Climbers problem and will be replacing them. I mean, while you are using a similar moveset as Ice Climbers, you aren’t exactly using two characters in one.

  • Symbol de Au

    Kirby’s a bit of a jerk. I must commend Donkey Kong for his restraint.

    • zferolie

      I think DK’s face when Rosalina showed up was great

      • Kaihedgie


  • Prinny Dood

    Sweet cant wait

  • XaviIniesta

    Hell yeah! Nintendo giving us Rosalina fans what we want!

  • Strain42

    Her mechanics with Luma make her seem like a pretty interesting character. I might just have to give Rosalina a try for myself…and then probably use her in the game some too :P (sorry, couldn’t resist. In all seriousness, this is cool news)

  • So far, all the videos have been on the stages. Even though Sakurai made the video to combine Mario Kart and Smash Bros., it might’ve also been hinting at a Rainbow Road level in Smash Bros.

    • God

      Mabe it will be like the F-Zero stage, but with 2000% more chances to fall off the stage, cause, it’s NOT the Rinbow Road if no one falls down.

    y’know this just hit me with that trailer, why DOESN’T nintendo ever make a crossover kart game? Kirby jetting on by just gave me that idea. They’re doing other crossovers, it’d be fun to see a NINTENDO KART RACER game, or at least some cameos.

    • Heisst


      • kenshinx13

        fair enough, i havn’t followed that game enough quite yet but.. have characters like kirby and link or something been added? Pac man is awesome but it’d be fun to see some smash representatives in mario kart

      • Kaitsu

        That only happened because Namco developed that game, not Nintendo. Though, reminder that Namco-Bandai is also working on SSB4, just to be on topic.

        • Heisst

          I don’t see what does that matter, it’s still Mario Kart which means Nintendo had to approve it, it’s a crossover that happened because Namco developed a Nintendo IP.

          Another Arcade GP is coming and has even more Namco characters like the taiko thing.

  • domonkun

    I loved the fake out this trailer did during the Nintendo Direct! I honestly thought it was going to be for Mario Kart 8 at first! :P

    • Farid Belkacemi

      I thought it was a new Kirby game for Wii U at first lol, then a MK8 trailer and then “OMG, new SSB trailer” in my brain :D

    • Carlos Fernandez

      I think they did that because she is in both. Rosalina is certainly becoming one of their big name characters, even with only really the Galaxy games to give her a name.

  • XaviIniesta

    Love the way Rosalina looks in the trailer. I always want my characters to have graceful moves, and she certainly does. And Luma seems to make her a bit of a more complex character, which I like. Can’t wait to try her out. She will be my new main.
    Now after this great piece of news I’m getting my hopes up, and hope they actually add Lucina as well.

  • Brimfyre

    Peach, stop touching people….

  • mojack411

    This is really neat. Didn’t really expect it and it looks like her playstyle is perfect for annoying people! Also, the music playing in the background made me wanna play Mario Galaxy all over again. God the music in that game was so amazing!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    yes yes yes yes yes yes yes!!!!!! Si!

    • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World


      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        Shes going to own Smash bros lol

    • Arcana Wiz

      Rosalina… you scare me,

    • Symbol de Au

      But you posted this before though. Post another one. =/

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        ok you asked for it.

        • J_Joestar

          we are just missing Daisy then (not counting a pallet swapped Peach).

          • ShawnOtakuSomething

            :/ it sucks they only use her for party games :/

          • J_Joestar

            Poor Daisy, always being left behind…
            i mean, remember the last time Bowser kidnapped Peach?

          • Servant BerserCAR

            It’s just every Friday night sight on Mushroom Kingdom.

        • Symbol de Au

          Lawl someone else posted that one before but ok thanks.

          • ShawnOtakuSomething

            ……ok bro want a Rosalina thread? I’ll be on the OT with the goods

        • Brimfyre

          That’s the background image I have on my PS3. :)

        • Servant BerserCAR

          These gals need their own game.

  • I did not expected Rosalina to be on Smash, to be honest I didn’t
    expected any news regarding Super Smash to be shown here. When the video
    started I thought it would be either Kirby Air Ride sequel or just that
    Kirby would be in Mario Kart lol. But I’m happy that it ended being
    Rosalina on Smash :3!

  • Nanaki

    Luma and Kirby…..Best of friends!

  • Rasputing

    When I saw the title I thought “You’re not gonna add as many new characters and another Mario character gets in?” But she looks like a fun character. Reminds me of how I felt when I saw the Ice Climbers (not pre release but at a friend’s house before I got the game myself), “Who are these two and why are they so cool?” That’s a pretty interesting gimmick there, can’t wait to give her a spin in-game.

  • chroma816

    Will she play a bit like the Ice Climbers, but with Luma instead? Or will Luma be more like an “option” in a lot of mech shows – a device used along with the robot that attacks and supports on its own?

    Either way, I still hope we have the Ice Climbers as well.

    • Leon_Tekashi

      I think she’ll play more like Olimar but more…Advanced?

      • chroma816

        After watching the vid again, I think you may be right.

  • Brandonmkii

    I giggled way too much at Kirby and Luma dancing

  • Anthony Birken

    Luma is cute and a badass. Rosalina…SOLD!!(was getting it anyway :P, lol at villager trying to catch luma XD)

  • *Sits on a corner hugging a Daisy doll*

  • God

    Too bad mario still has that God awful B-Down…

  • Magus KilIer

    She somehow reminds me of Eddie from Guilty Gear
    She looks like a pretty fun char

  • Yan Zhao

    Interesting, shes similar to Ice Climbers where you fight with 2 characters, and im assuming if one get KO’d you’ll be crippled with less moveset.

  • DragKudo

    Raidou and Jack frost can be like this if they put the two in this.

    • kmantle

      One can hope, but still, since Raidou has only appeared as a cameo in one game for a nintendo console, it looks like it’s never going to happen.

      Maybe the Demonica user and a Demonee-Ho?

  • O_O Master Clueless


  • So basically the Smash Bros equivalent of Viola from Soul Calibur 5

    Sign me the hell up

  • FFmax


  • mike dickson

    so ice climbers got replaced ?

  • She looks like fun, but also a bit tricky to use/master.

  • Ixbran

    Sooo exciting! Also, the character poster from the website for those interested.

    • Crevox

      fox is like “wtf am I doing”

  • Spirit Macardi

    A physical god and a baby planet… Suddenly the roster seems unbalanced XD

    Only one way to add balance back. You’re going to need another character with incredible powers… Like maybe control over the wind. Possibly one who’s a divine being as well, or is hinted at being the reincarnation or the avatar of one. And instead of traveling through space, maybe this one journeys through something like dreams.

    Actually, I think Namco has a character like this. And it just so happens that they’re working on this game and haven’t had a character of their own announced for this yet. Prime opportunity I’d say ;3

    • Barrylocke89

      You REALLY want Klonoa on the roster, don’t you :/

    • bassgs435

      nah , we need a guy with semi divine powers thanks to a powerful friend living within him who causes one of the guy’s eyes to be purple. (I REALLY want a Tales Character in the game and Asbel from Graces is the first that comes to mind and more recent one on a nintendo console)

  • Areuto

    Rosalina is the new Ice Climbers?….yeaaaaa -_-

  • Hinataharem

    Kirby making friends with a Luma? That is everything I could ever ask for
