Mario & Sonic at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games (Wii U)

Compared to the 3DS version availagne earlier in 2016 (see it below, the game was release at same time Rio 2016 Olympic Games begin. All the world got it at same time compared as it happen with other games, just a day earlier for Japan.

Nothing special on WiiU version compared to 3DS, stages and characters are the same. At last this time you can enjoy it (and especially Rosalina) in HD with much better graphics. The game was also criticised for being too similar to past instalments of the Mario & Sonic series, place and a few stages change but the more important is here: Rosalina joined the series.

Mini-Mario & Friends: Amiibo Challenge (3DS & Wii U)

A little game based on the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series with close gameplay and many elements from said series. The game is free on both WiiU/3DS but you must have an amiibo to play, you can use Mario, Diddy Kong, Luigi, Rosalina, Toad, Bowser, Princess Peach, Bowser Jr., Donkey Kong, and Yoshi to unlock miniature versions of those characters with special abilities or use any other to play basic stages.

All characters listed have a unique power in the game, Rosalina have a galactic jump to reach high height places. These powers allow you to reach special places in stages and get bonus or the character-themed worlds with four stages each, Galactic theme for Rosalina of course… °w

November 2015 / January 2016
Mario Tennis Ultra smash (WiiU)

10 years after the Gamecube version in 2015, here is a new Mario tennis games coming for the WiiU. Was powerfull to discover Rosalina join but once again you feel that Nintendo really consider her as secondary character cause she was revealed way after the first teaser during 2015 E3

The game also got a really bad rating and feedback cause it lost all that crazy things that made the gamecube version so fun. This on is much more realistic and limited. Only the giant mushroom add some particular gameplay but when your opponent get one you can just do your best and survive before he kick your ass. Also (for now), no function to play online with friends.

Once again Japan got the game two months after the rest of the world. Maybe Nintendo wanted to check for bugs and fix them before sell on Japan but the game never had updates.

Game announced: June 16th 2015 (during E3)
Rosalina announced: October 22th 2015

Nothing between the first teaser during E3 revealing Mario, Peach, Bowser and Toad and then the main trailer on November showing Rosalina with a suit close to the one she have on Mario golf then.

Yoshi’s Woolly World (WiiU)

Rosalina don’t appear at all on this game but her amiibo will unlock a pattern for Yoshi based on the character and that you can see on the corner illustration. I wasn’t sure about list this game but the Rosalina amiibo give a bonus and design that is linked to Rosalina, I thought it was interesting mention it as for Metroid Prime Blast Ball.

December 17th 2014 – Collectable Badge Center
Menu ni kazareru – Batsu toreru Senta

Only available on Japan 3DS at first and available a year later on the rest of the world, the collectable badge center is kinda as a crane game (claw machines). The goal is to collect badges from various Nintendo series that you can use to decorate the Home menu of your 3DS. Each day you can play on a training machine and get a chance win tries for the real machine and then win badges to use ton your home menu or can pay to have a go (5 plays for 99yen, $1 or 1€).
There is a machine rotation and new badges come regularely, Nintendo is adding more badges and there is a few with Rosalina from the Mario kart series, Mario party or St valentine theme. Can see all of them on the menu on top left corner and some machines that hold Rosalina badges on the bottom.

September/October 2014 – Smash Bros. 3DS
November/December 2014 – Smash Bros. WiiU

I consider Rosalina as the mroe beautifull girl in the world and not I also have a reason to say “powerfull”. She’s officially a fighter on Smash Bros. (3DS & WiiU). Fighting with her Luma who can attack and also be used a shield (poor guys), Rosalina is slow but strong character and can make really dangerous combos.

Interesting thing, Japan had the 3DS version 3 weeks before the rest of the world (lucky bastards) but they had to wait a week after other for the WiiU version.

Rosalina announced – December 18th 2013

It was the same day as Mario Kart, A new Smash. Bros. trailer announced Rosalina to join the newcomers. In fact the community already had a doubt since there was a stage inspired by Mario Galaxy appearing on the first Smash bros. trailer and now it’s confirmed. A wonderfull video to announce Rosalina here..

May 2014 – Mario kart 8 (WiiU)

Compared to Wii or 3DS versions, there isn’t special conditions to unlock characters. Each time you win a cup and have at last a star, a new character is unlocked randomly. It mean you can unlock Rosalina and Baby Rosalina directly at start or at the end if not luck.

So who will be your favorite, the strong and Heavy Rosalina to push your ennemies as for the Wii and 3DS versions or try this cute and lovely baby version damn fast?

Rosalina announced – December 18th 2013

As if it was expected, Nintendo officially “announced” that Rosalina will be available by showing her on the 2nd Mario kart 8 trailer. You can see her on a bike a few time (yeah, it come back)… \(^o^)/

Baby Rosalina announced – April 30th 2014

Nintendo announced so many characters during a live video. The more important is that after baby Peach, Daisy, MArio and Luigi, it’s now time for Baby Rosalina to join the game. IF you like Rosalina but don’t want to play with heavy characters, you kow what you have to do…

If like me you are not a huge fan of golf this game can’t sounds really interesting (as if not so bad once you played it) but it’s not the same thing after Nintendo announced what will inside the 3 DLC packs who will come with the game. And for sure there is Rosalina is inside the 3rd one… °w°

November 2013 – Mario Island tour (3DS)

Rosalina appears in Mario Party: Island Tour for the Nintendo 3DS. In this games she’s present as non-playable character on the space themed board: Rocket Road, where she waits at the end of the board for the winner and also appears in the celebration for a victory on this board.

As if Rosalina is not a playable character Nindendo didn’t forgot her like in Mario Tennis on 3DS. Rosalina was intended to appear instead of Luma suit but was replaced bacause the developers did not have enough time to model another complex character.

Available dates are also really surprising, USA received 1st the game on November. After that europe and Australia had to wait two month and Japanese guys four month… surpriseing Japan is so late compared to other countries. Also, South-Korea is still waiting for the game.

Rosalina is unlockable as the fifth playable character in Super Mario 3D World and first time Rosalina is playable in a Mario platformer game. To unlock her, return to World 1 after defeating Bowser and talk to the Sprixies, they will build you a rocket to World Star. Rosalina will appear at the end of the second level of the world, and after completing it she will become playable in any level. Oh yeah… °w°

As Peach floating, Toad running fast and Luigi with high julp, Rosalina have a special abilities: the Spin Jump and the Spin Attack, Like Mario in the Super Mario Galaxy series.

Rosalina announced – November 13th 2013

Nintendo officially announced Rosalina as fifth playable character character during the Nintendo direct in November 13th 2013. It was a little video showing “10 things you don’t know about Mario 3D world” and it was the 10th new…

December 2011 – Mario kart 7 (3DS)

After the Wii time for the 3DS version with Rosalina here as playable character. You have to win the star Race in 150CC (1st place) to unlock her.

As for Wii version, she have the same weight as Bowser but not sure there is still the bonus speed and the lovely Luma floating around her during the race was removed. You have now Roslaina in 3D but compare to Wii it’s not the same quality and she also don’t have biker suit since there is only karts available on this version. Once again, available dates are close for Japan, Europe, USA, Canada and Australia but South-Korea had to wait 5 moth before enjoy the game. I wonder what is the main reason.

May 2010 – Mario Galaxy 2

For Rosalina lovers it was a really bad surprise. There is a shadowy form named the “Cosmic Witch” or “Cosmic Spirit”, strongly resembling Rosalina, who appears to help in levels where the player has died multiple times and take controle of Mario to make him finish the level. You can also see Rosalina during the ending movie.

Don’t worry, there is a way to admire her, once you finish to collect all 250 stars, she come to your ship and offer you the 251th star. After that, she stay on your ship, Oh yeah… °w°

For this game, Nintendo wan’t so fast to make it available for all countries. It started in USA in May 2010 but South-Korea had to wait untill January 2011 to see the game available on the country. Other curious detail, it was available for USA before Japan… surprising… O_o
