The game’s theatrical setting and art style calls all the way back to the memorable stage-play framing device for Super Mario Bros. 3, while also carving out a unique starring role for Nintendo’s leading lady. The story follows Peach’s mission to save the Spark Theater from Grape and the Sour Bunch, and to do so she must take on different stages (quite literally considering the theater setting) in the aforementioned outfits.

And now we finally have some concrete information about what the game feels like to play. Ahead of the game’s release, Nintendo held a preview for press, giving them hands-on time with an hour of content. Overall previews paint a picture of a fun—if sometimes simple—game that delivers a satisfying experience that’s geared especially towards younger players. We also learned that the game will let you tackle each stage in whatever order you choose from an overworld map. With Nintendo Switch’s 2024 slate of games looking fairly sparse of first-party releases, Princess Peach: Showtime is set to be the console’s big title this year.
