A new batch of screenshots has just been released for the upcoming latest installment in the Super Smash Bros. franchise, this time featuring the return of one of the most popular characters in the Super Mario Bros’ franchise (who isn’t a plumber nor a monster): Princess Peach.

Super Smash Bros (aside from the Doki Doki Panic reskin that is SMB2) is one of the first games where Princess Peach really comes into her own, no longer requiring any rescue and in fact going toe to toe with the red fat plumber himself on several occasions. Aalthough one of the screenshots shows her in distress while Koopa looms menacingly behind as Mario watches from afar, but we chalk that up to the characters doing it for old times’ sake.

In case you were wonder about the difference in quality in the screenshots, some of them are from the Wii U while the remaining two are from the 3DS version, as the labels so clearly state.
