E3 2013: Princess Peach finally a playable character again in Super Mario 3D World for Wii U

It’s hard to believe that of the hundreds of Mario titles that have come out since the 1980s, Mario himself is almost always the only playable character. Luigi has had his moments and in offshoot titles like Mario Tennis or Golf or whatever-the-shit, you can play as Peach or Toad or Wario or Bowser, but as far as the main line of platformers themselves, it’s always Mario and sometimes Luigi. Finally in the upcoming Super Mario 3D World for Wii U, players will be able to play as Princess Peach for the first time since Super Mario Bros in 1988.

Major Wii U titles won’t be hitting shelves until sometime later this year

I’m not entirely sure what the hell is wrong with Nintendo the last several years. They launched the 3DS with very few games and not a single best-selling first party title came out until a year later and only now we’re just hearing about a Pokemon 3DS game. They launched the Wii U, but the only launch titles were a few crappy games and some rehashed Xbox/PS3 games. And it won’t be until sometime later this year that Nintendo will be launching some of the first person franchises people buy Nintendos for.
