Mario is always risking life and limb to save Princess Peach, but what does he get in return? To live happily ever after? No. How about a vacation to a beautiful tropical isle? Nope, not even that. But this week the tables have been turned and the Princess must save the two kidnapped Mario brothers! An entirely new 2D Mario-style platformer from Nintendo, this is a fairly rare event indeed, and the game's fun, bright and colorful design is very reminiscent of Yoshi's Island. Armed with her *cough* umbrella, Peach travels across eight worlds to rescue her *cough* dream man (sorry, I seem to be coming down with something this morning!), and can use her magical brolly to gracefully float, or viciously attack enemies.
Each creature she takes out increases her "Vibe Meter", which when filled, can be converted to one of four emotions. Float through the air when she's happy, burn through walls when she's mad, make vegetation grow with her tears, or chill and regain health when she's got a good calm going, Peach is an emotional gal. Knowing how girls love to shop too, Nintendo added the ability to buy new moves at Toad's store, and thereby finally also gave more of an incentive to grab those golden coins. The Japanese version has been in stock for a while now, and all 7 customer reviews gave a solid . In stock now, all pre-orders for this US version have already been cleared, but everyone else better hurry up, Mario and Luigi need you!
