Rosalina is sassy in Star Rush? Well according to the original meaning , maybe , but i would hate that over the top lively character.

And Last time i checked she was howling like a she-wolf whenever she gets zapped in that running minigame. Sad.

1 thing im sure about is Sports SuperStars will be better than Star Rush, at least for Rosalina and her competitiviness in golf.

You'd hate it? First, a sticker. Then, the world.
I don't see what's bad with giving Rosalina some sassy traits. What would be the best representation of her for you?
Personally, I'm happy she isn't just the "calmer one" in this game. She never really was just that, but some games tended to it (aka MP10 I think), so this attitude of her really makes her stand out more (as she already did).

Kinda feels late for me to ask this but I will anyway. Can we really be so certain that Rosalina was formerly a redhead? I'm thinking of a possible scenario where it may just be for the sake of the storybook's art style as well as them trying to hide the fact that it actually is young Rosalina portrayed in the story. It could be a somewhat similar thing as the first Metroid where they try to hide the fact that Samus is a woman with the manual calling her a "he." Or I'm just missing something entirely and it was already explained long ago why she actually was a redhead?

I mean it was never explained why she had apricot hair (it wasn't red hair), but we really don't need one.

This is just one of those things I take at face value. My headcanon to explain it a bit more is that her hair became platinum blonde because of her constant exposure to stars.

You know how soaking in the sun a lot can make a person's hair go blonde in real life? I imagine that's simply how Rosalina got her hair colour by the time she was an adult. Since the sun is just a huge star, Rosalina being exposed so closely to stars would have the same effect as someone hanging out on a sunny beach a lot.

Oh my god guys, I'm so happy right now! I legit thought Rosalina would be the type of person who teaches, like a teacher, to her Lumas and telling them stories. This has been in my mind for a while now, and I'm so happy it's canon! EEEEK!! No, seriously.. I really think she is like a teacher in the galaxy games, where she is like: "Listen, little ones. I shall teach you the borders and boundaries of the cosmos..." and open her book and begin her story and multiple thing like that. But for her to have a Tennis School? It would be the best Tennis school, and probably the best IRL if it wasn't fictional, due to her being the strongest female in Mario for sports.


That sounds like my kind of school.

I wonder how strict a teacher she is.

Actually, if she were that strict then Bowser would be getting detention all year long, lol.

I personally believe that Rosalina wouldn't be as strict to her students, due to her being a calm character and a motherly one at that. I could imagine her saying stuff like: "Oh no, that isn't right my dear... I know you are very capable of performing said tasks, the power in you remain dormant until you arise from beneath the clouds of insecurities." Literally hearing her teaching and stuff is what you'd expect from a teacher. Not to mention that she would be that one motherly teacher who nurtures her student, like a kindergarden teacher.

I do kind of wonder why Rosalina would have a tennis school. She'd seem too soft of a teacher, or at least, that's how I feel about the matter.
Teachers can be soft. There are teacher with bubbly personalities while there are boring ones (not to point out names). I've been to High School, so I'd know. If you take Rosalina's character, altogether, and make her a teacher, she would teach you unlimited wisdom of the cosmos because she bears such knowledge for being a goddess of the stars.

-------------------------------------------------------------

I really like that Nintendo made my dream of her being a teacher come true (even though she was like one in her first debut), but I do want her to have full authority over her school.. So wouldn't she be like a principal? Also, there's one thing I'm afraid of and that is how she is portrayed in a scenario with Bowser in it for Star Rush.


It was just a quick pose as a joke so I wasn't going for perfection.

Her hand isn't supposed to be in a fist, actually. It's just a sort of neutral position a lot of catwalk models seem to rest their unused hand in.
Oh, so I guess we don't have to mind memoryman3's O.O.C comment then.

It could also be that when Rosalina got her powers, and went into motherhood, her hair change would be an indication of growing up and maturing to take on an eternal responsibility.

One thing I would like to mention is that Rosalina's normal dress is a hue of the blue sky we'd normally see everyday (in real life and in Mario games), along with the fact that it's also used to represent sorrow. Yeah, I was thinking of this for a while too.

There are various elements in the book that let you say something about it, from the most straight to the most far-fetched:
  • 90% chance it has to do with the acceptance of her role. That is simply because in the second to last image of the storybook She gets platinum blonde hairs. She is also significantly taller, her eyes turned from blue to turquoise, her skin is even paler and her dress becomes turquoise.
  • Since that image and the one immediately before happen in the same day, the change was sudden, and it is implied that it is due to the light enveloping her that night.
  • One might argue that the light was blue since it remembered her of her home, the same color of her powers, and thus her powers changed her appearence

Well if Rosalina were a teacher, she'd probably teach either in small groups (like 5 to 10 people), or in very large classes (like a college lecture hall).

Play Nintendo has a puzzle that includes Rosalina along with the rest of the Mario cast. I bet most of you want to piece her together first.

https://play.nintendo.com/activities/puzzles/nintendo-online-jigsaw-puzzle-game/

That image hurts me.

They're using renders from all across the last decade and they all clash.

And the scaling on the characters is really weird, Daisy looks like she's the same size as Mario, and Luigi looks smaller than both of them.

It's like a random fan-made image in MS Paint or something.

Yeah... Play Nintendo really isn't a perfect site. They just put stuff in and be like "whatever", and that includes calling Baby Rosalina and Rosalina a princess along with other mistakes. At least the background looks decent.

I found this picture.


Who wants to bet this game has more content than MP10?

What really bothers me about this picture is the mixing of different renders... Like Peach's MP10 artwork is mixed with old renders for other characters... Also, I don't like puzzles (just not my type of enjoyment).
You can notice Peach and Toad used to more recent renders. Whereas everyone except Rosalina use their classic render.

Well of course Play Nintendo is a kids site, they would spent all day going through that if they want to.

This reminds me that Wario , Daisy and Waluigi need new renders NOW.

They are being lazy with that , i remember VIVIDLY when Nintendo updated their artstyle and they updated ALL the characters in a bunch , unlike now.

They are so lazy is not even funny.

Nintendo are too lazy to do anything new, too lazy to learn their mistakes but overall, they're too lazy to listen to their fans.

All the more reasons why I've given up on them.

Just thinking that Galaxy cruise could make for a mighy fine Mario Kart track.
Now that you said it... It's true it's even an ad that could appear in a Mario Kart. I wonder if it's a hint for something in the future.

I noticed Rosalina has areally funny idle pose when waiting to be recruited

She has one arm in her hips like this , makes her look a bit more womaly and with personality
This portrayal was almost perfect ... until she jumps and makes the same sound when she is hit by a blooper in MK8 , which makes no sense.

Cannot win them all these days , There is always that little something that makes my eyes roll.

Excessive Rosalina and Luma cuteness best cuteness.
You could say that that's one of the reasons why I like to think of Rosalina as being a cute person who's also nice, caring, and very good tempered. Too bad that not all drawings are like that.

In fact, it's cute drawings like those that can highly explain my Rosalina + Biddybuggy pairing in Mario Kart 8, though the demo version of the game is also the reason for the pairing.

Could this be the beginning of a great era..? It must truly be...

https://mynintendonews.com/2016/08/...are-of-past-mistakes-and-wont-repeat-with-nx/






Ultra Smash and Rio Olympics aren't bad since Rosalina get new outfits and etc. But the portrayals aren't really the best.

3D World isn't that bad, since Rosalina does well in that game. Rosalina is a very, very popular character in Nintendo, so her not being in a game would be a problem. The only thing they'd need to work on for Rosalina is the contents she's placed in and her portrayals, but that failed in the Rio Olympics.

Hopefully for the NX, Super Mario Galaxy 3 will come. Remember, there's still hope.



I sometime like to imagine Rosalina sing "Tomorrow" from Annie, to her Lumas when they are in a state of sorrow. To represent hope in a way.
Found this on Miiverse: https://miiverse.nintendo.net/posts/AYQHAAABAACaU2ySjeHcKQ
Eeewww!

Showcasing RoSTALINa porn art along with posting a screenshot of that abysmal Manhands game to boot?

That's a double negative my friend

Im seriously Liking Rosalina in this new Mario Party Game ... she is cute but there's no over the top emotions when she does stuff ... they removed all the ''Woooooooooos'' from MP10.

We also get more than expected Rosalina related content , in this case Galaxy content . I LOVE they included this specific song in its original form.

So this happened. May Jesus be praised , because he does indeed Exist.

Im in love once more ... However , if it was me , i would have probably experimented either With Kerri Kane or Laura Faye Smith herself , as i think after so many years , im more open to a more joyful Rosalina , nevertheless what i like about Rosalina's original voice is not just the echo or the ''monotone'' feel , is the fact that its deep! Rosalina deserves a deeper sounding voice and that's all.

I know that **** right. Be smart, Nintendo!
Hints... All hints. If we start off with an insanely popular Rosalina game, she may get her own series, that then we can worry about how her game will play. As of now, we can still gather pieces of the future and see what unfolds. Beside, Mario games are usually simple and Rosalina has many things to her and the best way is her own series to simplify the complications and to correct the misconceptions. Also, I wish there was a Galaxy game made to be as big like Breath of the Wild, yet similiar to Skyward Sword in a way. I mean, it's space we're dealing with here so wouldn't it make sense for make it infinitely massive? If that's too much trouble then gravity is always around.

It's been a while since there was main game, or big games featuring her. A game with story elements or those kind of games that you expect main characters and popular characters to get in.

And I noticed today that these dice blocks are colored in the character's favor.

It would've been nice if they added a starry design for Rosalina's dice, along with other characters like Mario and Luigi, so that Diddy Kong wouldn't be the only one with extra details.

Here's something you guys might like.

Michafrar (pixel artist that is also known for making the title cards for JonTron's videos) is selling a sticker set of some Super Mario Galaxy pixel art he made. It honestly looks better than something Nintendo would produce. Think I might buy them.

http://michafrar.tictail.com/product/mario-galaxy-sticker-set

Tried to post images but for some reason they aren't showing up.

I feel very inspired by looking other kinds of art styles that i should try in the near future.
Even though my strong point now , its vector art . I also like How Nintendo is going back to use it after so many years.
It seems like the current trend is ''less is more'' , simple things are appreaciated more and popular right now.

Yeah, though I kinda wish it wasn't the case for everything.

Like, almost every Western cartoon these days has almost the exact same art style. And all of them are comedies.

That's why I find myself watching anime more often, these days, since there seems to be a bit more variety.

^ I instead find that among animes, there are way too many middle of the road, high school harem shows riddled with cliches of harem shows, of shounens, of fantasy/fighting high-school animes and animes in general.
This is not to say that an harem show is inerently bad, but most of them are way too lazily made for my tastes, though I will give you that occidental animation isn't that much less stacked. That is why in the end I prefer occidental animation influenced by oriental one, as in the end, despite some influences that might not be the best, the gap between the likes of Avatar, TT and RWBY is overall higher than purely occidental or oriental animation, also the blend almost always menages to grant them the best fight coreography

Tiny nose depictions have been something that I prefer to see when looking at artworks or various drawings. There's just something about a pencil point nose that can make certain characters look better.
