Princess?
« on: February 07, 2012 »
Anyone else getting tired of every major female Nintendo character being a princess? I am! Yes as you can see I do love the princess characters but they are getting old. I would just like to see a normal girl for once strutting her stuff with the Mario gang or in her own game or in many other Nintendo series.

I hadn't really thought about that. Look at the brothers,  they all have the similar clothing and the girls are the princesses. Imo, that's how Nintendo makes their characters, but yeah, I'd like to see something different as well; It gets stale after awhile. Not saying I hate them, but Nintendo needs to try some fresh new ideas with characters (bring Toadette back).

^ Not to mention Fire Emblem and Mother

But yes, I'm tired of seeing Princess Peach as the main female character in every Mario game.

Mother 3's leading lady was a princess. I do know about Metroid! I am talking more about Mario though and I'm sure FE has its fair share of princess to.

I disagree, I really like the idea of the princesses. Sure, it's cliche, but I still think it's a great idea. I never get tired of the "mario-rescuing-the-princess" thing.
I like pancakes.

I agree we need more different girl characters, but they shouldn't lessen the appearance of characters like Peach/Daisy, they are main characters...

Peach has been the main female character in Mario games for years now, kinda doubt they'll change it. In Zelda games it's the same, I hardly see a game without Princess Zelda, unless it's someone like Tetra. For main characters I don't think it'll change, but any other character then yes.

The closest thing to a non princess in a Mario game would be Wario's mini-game games.

I don't want them to get rid of Peach either. I just want them to mix it up a bit.

Yeah earlier you said you like the princesses, you would just rather have a higher variety than just only princesses in the universe.

Yea I'm all for the princesses I just want more than just princesses. Maybe like a female plumber but I don't ever see that happening.
