Princess Peach: Showtime! Changes Key Art

Following the announcement of Princess Peach: Showtime!, Nintendo has altered the game’s original key art, viewable via the official eShop store page. While mostly the same, there are two significant changes, notably the Peach shown front and center, as well as the one to the right side of the illustration.

They are depicted with angrier expressions than the original, which is neat as it highlights more of Peach’s personality. Perhaps it’s inspired by the direction the animated film took with her characterization.

Thanks to the NoContextSuperMario Twitter account for sharing this news. They also pointed out the the Japanese key art is the same as this new version.

The wicked Grape and the Sour Bunch have taken over the Sparkle Theater, and now it’s up to Peach and the theater’s guardian, Stella, to save the play. To do this, Peach can transform and use fantastic showstopping abilities to face off against the Sour Bunch.

The last time we saw Princess Peach get her own game was with Super Princess Peach, a Nintendo DS game. In the DS original, players find that Bowser has stolen the Vibe Scepter and kidnaps Mario, Luigi, and the Toads. Princess Peach then heads to Vibe Island with the help of a talking umbrella, Perry, and she must rescue Mario and his friends using the power of her emotions.
