Miyamoto Explains Why Peach Isn’t In New Super Mario Bros Wii

October 18, 2009


Kotaku (Well, that’s where I found it) have a question from an interview with Miyamoto where he explains the reasons that Princess Peach isn’t in New Super Mario Bros Wii. The main reason is because she has a dress and a different programming job would be required to program the gown’s flow. Since she is a different build from the other characters it would also require more programming to get the movement right.  Here is the full answer:

“I thought it’d be nice to have her as a playable character, but the toad characters had a similar physique to a Mario character than Peach does. And if one of the four had a dress, we’d have to come up with a special programming to handle how the skirt is handled in the gameplay, and that’s really the only reason why Peach isn’t playable (laughs). Of course If we had Wario in there we’d have to program a way to make him fart. (laughs)”

The main reason I posted this is because he mentions that Wario would have been able to fart which would quite frankly kicks ass.
