Keeping its promise to regularly release information for Super Smash Bros., Nintendo has revealed another character who will appear in the roster of fighters. This time, the fighter is none other than our favorite princess in another castle, Princess Peach.

Providing screenshots from both the Wii U and 3DS installment of the game, a fair amount has been revealed concerning the Princess's move set. She still has her classic ability to reflect damage using Toad as well as the "booty-bump" attack (this time without hearts), but there are a few newer attacks she will be able to perform.

For instance, Peach can be seen in one of the stills attacking Pitt with her royal crown in mid-air. In another screen shot, the princess spins with a long, pink ribbon in her hand which damages her opponents at close range. Something both new and surprising is her ability to grab one of Olimar's helpless Pikmin and apparently throw it at her enemies. Princess Peach also seems to be able to perform a move that involves hearts appearing around her, but this particular photo-still is a bit unclear.

Since the official announcement of Super Smash Bros. back at E3, Nintendo has slowly revealed the roster for the game from the classic Mario and Kirby to newcomers such as Mega Man, Wii Fit Trainer, and the Villager. Super Smash Bros. releases on the Wii U and 3DS in Spring of 2014.
