New Super Mario Bros U director Masataka Takemoto has explained why Nintendo decided not to include Princess Peach as a playable character in his new game.
As in New Super Mario Bros Wii, you can play as Mario, Luigi or a Toad in multiplayer mode and according to Takemoto, there is a good reason why his team chose these characters.
"In Super Mario Bros 2, Princess Peach had her own unique moves and animation," Takemoto told GamesTM, "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."
What he didn't mention is that the goal in New Super Mario Bros U is to rescue Princess Peach who is being held hostage in her own castle. So clearly it wouldn't make sense for Peach to rescue herself!
Anyway, would you have liked to have been able to play as other characters from the Mario universe in New Super mario Bros U. If so, who?
