Earlier today, Nintendo hosted one of those Nintendo Direct events where they showcased trailers for games coming to the Switch. Among other things, we got to see more of the upcoming Princess Peach: Showtime!, which also received its release date of March 22, 2024.
In Princess Peach: Showtime!, Princess Peach is on a mission to save a play, and she’ll do so by transforming into various roles, each granting her different abilities. For instance, she can become a swordmaster to combat enemies with swordplay, mix it with martial arts as Kung Fu Peach, or defeat foes with baking skills by transforming into a pastry chef.
Another exciting reveal from Nintendo was a new trailer for the updated version of the GameCube classic, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. The game will, of course, feature updated graphics and new features.
