Princess Peach (ピーチ, Pīchi) has been confirmed to reappear in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Originally shown in the Subspace Emissary trailer, she was later confirmed as a playable character on August 17. Her play style appears to be relatively unchanged, as she still possesses her floating ability, as well as her four distinct Special Moves. She has, however, been updated graphically to appear more realistic. Her Final Smash was recently shown in one of many videos of hands-on gameplay. Two drawings of Peach flank the window, and hearts frame the view. Peach blows numerous kisses, damaging all enemies and putting them to sleep. A plethora of health-restoring peaches drop from the sky; with her opponents subdued, Peach thus has the ability to restore health at her leisure. In a recent trailer, Peach is seen dancing with Bowser, who seems to be under a trance. Whether this is a taunt or a special ability is currently unknown.
Role in the Subspace Emissary
After seeing Mario and Kirby attacked by the Subspace Army, she and Zelda run to aide them. While Mario was blasted away, she and Zelda were both captured by Petey Piranha. It is up to the player at this point to decide which one to save. Afterwards, Kirby takes them for a ride on his Warp Star before being hit onto the Halberd. Soon after, an Arwing gets shot down, blowing Peach and Kirby off the Halberd onto the ground below.
