Mario & Sonic Guy Mario & Sonic Guy Char Seasalina Char Seasalina Hey! Long time no see :p I hope you've all been doing well

Would any of you happen to have high quality snapshots of Rosalina (and maybe Luma) from the games? Preferably from Super Smash Bros. For the Wii U.

I would be very grateful if you would share them with me as I want to try to make some cute/funny emotes out of the snapshots if possible

Any particular expressions or games you want?

I have tons of SSB Wii U ones and a few from other games like Mario Kart 8 and Mario Party 10.

Like this one.

It's nice to see you again! I am doing pretty well, thank you for asking. Of course, I'd love to help. I posted some few pictures of my gameplay on 3D World in the old pages. Here are some pictures I took from the games.



I was actually lucky to pause at the right moment when playing this.






As for the ones with Lumas, I only have this. Most of these are from my brother's account.

If you need any more pictures, you can always ask me and I'd be willing to assist!

I'll try, but I'm not sure if the following images are what you're looking for.

I don't really post on Smashboards anymore but I think I will stop by this thread on occasion.

The Mario Party box art looks nice and I love how big Rosalina is, though she looks a bit odd in the face. I seem to hold the unpopular opinion that the game actually looks like a lot of fun, being more like a Mario RTS than a traditional Mario Party, at least as far as Toad Scramble is concerned. I'm totally down with that. I might pick it up.

I do need to vent though.

I've become really bothered with Rosalina's portrayal in the Rio Olympics on Wii U.

Her model may be sexy and all that, but they make her sound as weak and delicate as rice paper in this game. Their excuse for her not being able to compete in other events besides gymnastics is that they're "too difficult for her".



I know it's just an arbitrary way of justifying why she isn't in other events, just like how her stats are non-sensical due to the fact they really don't matter for her in this game. But they could have handled it much better. You could also interpret this as her just being modest, but even that doesn't work. Rosalina is supposed to be confident yet modest - she's able to do amazing things and she knows it, and won't back down from a challenge, but will not get in your face if you lose and will commend your efforts regardless of the outcome. She's not even being modest here, she's flat out too nervous to participate in the first place. Seems really off to me, especially considering stuff like this:



If they really needed an explanation for why each character isn't playable in every event, Rosalina's should have been "I'd love to try my hand at more events, but I'm far too busy right now. As fun as the Olympics are, I've got Lumas to feed and galaxies to protect! I'll warp down here whenever I get a free moment, though, and cheer everyone on from the spectator's stand!".

Something like that would have been much more in character and wouldn't require arbitrarily making her a wimp. I just really don't like handling her character like this, it's literally the stereotype less informed Mario fans make about her, where she's this weakling, anorexic shy girl who can't even take on a Goomba, let alone Bowser (just because of how she arbitrarily sits on the sidelines in Galaxy), and needs Peach and Daisy to escort her around everywhere like a little kid (despite the fact she's a literal mother herself).

I mean she is clearly more physically built than Peach and Daisy and most other characters in the game. And in Ultra Smash, she's a Power Class who can break real life serving speed records.

Yet SEGA sincerely expects me to accept that even Table Tennis would be "too difficult" for her?

SEGA is normally pretty good with actually making Mario characters pretty interesting in these games and staying true to their characters while expanding upon them. But with Rosalina, they did the opposite. They just took a misinformed fandom stereotype and rolled with that.

This is why Rosalina really needs her own game, if not to be segregated from the Mario franchise altogether. Her bios consistently paint her as an OP goddess in both magic and physical strength. But her in-game portrayals don't always match up with this, because they're afraid of her actually looking more powerful than other characters, or they want to glorify another character (Bowser in MP10, for example).

Outside of fan-art, I've been less interested in Rosalina as of late. Granted, that is partly because I've had other things going on, and there hasn't been a super compelling game featuring her recently, but I just want both a solid and fleshed out portrayal for her, for once to really ignite that spark in me again.

I'll still buy three of her amiibo, though...
Something about the way she words that makes me feel like she could actually do all of the other events with the greatest of ease, but she chooses not to in order to give everyone else a chance. I mean, she is the only space god in a competition full of mortals.

I've seen other people say that, but I don't get what they mean.

She seems to be talking pretty straight-forwardly to me, with no real hint of sarcasm or cheek.

Notice how she says "a little difficult" and not "too difficult." And before that she comments on how people are enjoying the Mario League. I interpret that as her saying "Oh, everyone's having a good time, I won't spoil their fun by winning everything." Rosalina's not really the type of person to be sarcastic or cheeky. She speaks in riddles and makes you read between the lines to find her true meaning. She's mysterious like that.

So I found a good tool for converting XNALara models to Blender. Most of the Rosalina models seem to be converted to XNALara format, so this means I can easily convert them and work on them now.

Right now I'm updating the Tennis Rosalina model to look nicer. I'm using Waifu2x to update the textures, so they look clearer. The difference is really cool.

Her crown texture before updating:



And after updating:



After that, I will add material effects to certain textures.

Rosalina will be in the new Mario Sports game on the 3DS. Looks like her Tennis outfit will be her main sportswear.

I was fortunate enough for the 3DS Direct to be right in between my classes. Nothing special, but a couple notable things.
Super Mario Maker and Yoshi's Wooly World now have 3DS versions. What's next? Splatoon?

Mario Sports Superstars is basically the next Mario Sports Mix, and Rosalina is in her tennis outfit as seen on a horse she's riding. Rosalina basically shows up for maybe a whole 2 seconds in the entire direct.

There is a new Pikmin title with no name yet. Looks kinda interesting.

Oh, and nothing new for Pokemon except Alolan Rattata.

Is that official art of the new Mario Sports game?

Also I will wait and see. I'm worried this game won't have much in each individual sport, since the menu looked bare bones.

Yes , it is official.

I will keep my mind open since this game is set to be released in next year , not on holidays this year or anything like that.

What they have now is good , enough to announce the game , so we can wait to see what comes next.

Im actually very happy they basically confirmed evey character is available in any sport , and the roster is MKWii - like this time around. I have no complaints.

I think someone is very jealous that he got excluded from soccer...


I mean the Kritter "is" the goal keeper in the Mario Strikers series after all.

Man this looks like one massive grand finale of fireworks to a nice, warm, relaxing summer. Of course Bellhenge never ceases to wow me, even when the drawings aren't even new.

While summer of 2016 was a bit dry in "certain" areas, I enjoyed my time. I was even able to take time to shrink down my backlog again.

Just because Yoshi has dumb expression doesn't mean other characters will though.

There's many ways to show ''damage''

You can always not be over the top about it.

Though knowing current Nintendo, she probably will do something real out of character in this game or something.

Anywayy... These are good news. And the fact she's got her tennis outfit for every event is quite good. She at least doesn't have a recolor of Peach's outfit and the white leggings really fit her.
Also, Rosalina in soccer.
Finally.
Finally!

This game would have looked better on Wii U, but it's good enough. So Rosalina will compete with her tennis outfit (we should just call it sport outfit now) except for Golf I guess?
I'm really hyped for this game.

By the way, if every character only has one instrument for himself, Rosalina has violin in Mario Part Star Rush. Along with guitar, she seems quite the good musician.

EDIT: Found this. She doesn't need to be perfect, yet she is.

Good question. I found it on Tumblr and there wasn't any source. It came with Peach's, Daisy's and Toadette's version. I didn't see it on Nintendo of Europe or America however.

I was kind of dissatisfied to hear that she will only be wearing her tennis outfit. They could've least gave her pants which can cover up as well as her leggings do, to avoid upskirts. Especially when playing sports that involves alot of bending downs and etc. I mean like, only Tennis dress when Peach and Daisy wears gets to wear other clothes?

Peach looks like the cheery friend welcoming you to the party, she's probably a bit stressed holding everything together though.
Daisy looks like the overly excited aunt who's about to grab you and give you a big sloppy kiss and is making you uncomfortable.
Rosalina looks like the sassy MILF who will show you a good time.
Toadette is the cute younger cousin everyone likes.

I'm happy the way it is. A Peach recolor of the sport outfit would just... not fit her. At least she's finally got a sportwear and that's amazing.
Now let's speak serious. She'll be a power type.

It's funny because the Tennis Outfit is almost a recolor of Peach's.

My problem is the same , it's messy to ride a horse with no pants on , and if you have a skirt it has to be long to avoid it getting up.


There's also the possibility that Rosalina has an alternate costume , like Peach and Daisy do in Sports Mix. You can pick shorts or a dress.

I would think it would look messing in football , but they most likely will make Rosalina float to put in as an excuse and get away with it.

Upskirts aren't as big a deal for Rosalina because her legs are covered anyway.

I wouldn't care either way.

I personally think the one sports outfit is fine. It's the best looking one in general anyway.

An excuse?
Rosalina's been floating in 95% of her appearances
what excuse do you speak of
it's one of the character's main ability

aaaand yeah. But she looks way different than Pech with this skirt on. And white leggins~!
I said it already but I'm really hyped for this game. Rosalina in football couldn't make me happier.

I meant the dress. They will make her float just to keep the dress in football , that's what i meant.

Running in football is way more active than in Tennis , so there's a high chance Rosalina will just float in her dress instead .

A power type... Since she will be playing in other sports, I wonder how will she fare. By other sports, I mean Equestrian and the racing kinds.

By Nintendo logic of wearing a sport dress on horses and other transportation, Rosalina could wear her sport dress for bikes in MK8. I hope she gets an alternate costume, because it would be nice to see her wearing pants and sneakers that covers up her body as well as her sport dress does. Either way, It's nice to see Rosalina playable in all sports. We have to wonder whether or not she'll be an unlockable.

The problem with this statement is that you're speaking as if they would make Rosalina float in soccer BECAUSE they want to cut corners.

When in reality, they would make Rosalina float regardless because it's a signature trait of hers.

It's more a case of "we don't need to make a new outfit because she's floating anyway", rather than "we'll make her float so we don't need to make a new outfit".

Judging by this , we can already have some clue of the categories divided in this upcoming game.

The emblems shapes seem to have a meaning.

We have Mario , Yoshi and Birdo with the same shape = Medium or maybe all round

Baby Mario has a tiny shape = Small or maybe speedy

Boo has a special shape = Tricky or Defensive.

And we have Rosalina , Bowser and Wario with a round and big shape = Large or Poweful.

The fact that they fit in each category going by this logic already tells the message for me. Rosalina's emblem shape matches the common Power characters , thus she is likely to be too.

Also there's tennis and Golf in this game , and Rosalina is already power type in those , so put the pieces together and you get the obvious answer.

Unlockable? Nah, don't think so. She's on the tennis art, but with how she's also on Mario Party's cover and yeah being unlockable... I dunno. It's funny how Rosalina just switches between unlockable and not. This game has lots of characters already, Birdo even returns. I doubt she'll be unlockable, but that's not really important anyway.

Hey, clever! So yeah it's confirmed.
It's done. I'm in love with this game already. They can't mess the Tennis part more (than they did in Ultra Smash) and the Golf part seems alright. Football isn't Strikers but it's the least we'll have I guess. I've never played Mario Super Sluggers (never released in Europe. What a shame), so I can't really tell if it's good or not. As for Equestrian, it just seems like some random sport they needed to add I think. Not that random, but I would have chosen something like Basketball or even that sport game they never released because of its "violence".

As for alternate outfits, I guess she'll just have her dress in Golf with the sportwear being optional.

Don't forget about Baseball. Rosalina can canonically hit it more than just "out of the park", hopefully they can make that happen in game. And I feel she'd still wear her Tennis dress for that sport as well. I'm so upset that the time Rosalina appears in many 3DS games such as the parties and sports, I barely have a working 3DS and lost my other games.

Sadly , the under representation of DK series in Smash seems to have been ported to other series as well.
I still remember the day Bayonetta was announced and the K Rool thread...didn't take it too well. *shudders*

My biggest problem with this is regarding soccer, I wanted a sequel to the Strikers Series, by which I mean overly edgy, gritty, and personalized. I'll probably pass on this one.

The only other thing to note is the Yoshi Wooly World port. First off, last time I checked, Poochy was about as popular as Scrappy Doo, so I'm wondering why he's being advertised so much. Secondly, I hope those stop motion shorts are sold separately, as I would gladly just pay to see those.
