If you have played most Mario games, majority of the time the princess Mario has to save is none other than Princess Peach. But it seems with the upcoming Super Mario Galaxy’s new and exciting gameplay comes a new and exciting princess.

According to the latest preview of Super Mario Galaxy caught in the latest edition of Famitsu, the new princess pictured above is named Princess Rosetta. Not much is known about her or what significance she has in Super Mario Galaxy, but fear not fanboys. Your precious Princess Peach will still be the main focus of this adventure, as the majority of the Mario games are.

When did Princess Toadstool become Princess Peach? :confused:
It was a translation thing I believe.

oo yeah here it is

From "Toadstool" to "Peach"

In Japan, the Princess's name has always been Peach, but when Super Mario Bros was released in America, Nintendo of America decided to rename her Princess Toadstool,[7]. She kept this name throughout the 8-bit and 16-bit video game eras. Often, however, in-game text only referred to her as "Princess" or "The Princess," most likely a result of space constraints. In Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars she was referred to in menus as just "Toadstool." However, if Princess Toadstool gets eaten by Belome, he mentions that she tastes "peachy".
The English translation of Yoshi's Safari (1993) was the first usage of the name "Peach" outside of Japan; however, the name did not catch on at that time. When Super Mario 64 was released in North America, she signed a letter to Mario as "Princess Toadstool" and then hand-wrote "Peach" (thus "Princess Toadstool, Peach"). Throughout most of the game, she is still referred to as Princess Toadstool. In subsequent sequels and spinoffs, however, she has come to be known only as Princess Peach.[7] The only exceptions to this are certain ports which retain the name. In the official Mario Megasite, her full name is given as "Peach Toadstool". It should be noted that in Japan, the re-releases of Super Mario 64 (both the Nintendo 64 Rumble Pak version and DS remake) feature the same voice-work, and the Princess still signs her letter as "Princess Toadstool, Peach" in the Japanese version.

he mentions that she tastes "peachy".
Oh boi! That's wrong on many levels. Well maybe just one level, but wrong nonetheless.

I declare,

I liek that straight hair. She's probably some universe princess that you help in the game. This game looks better everytime I see it.

Makes a measure of sense; it's not in the Mushroom Kingdom anymore, so it makes sense that there would be a different princess. Kind of. (shouldn't she be alien, not human?)

Bowser looks awesome though.
