Know Your amiibo! Episode 1-2: Peach

Super Smash Brothers Wave 1, amiibo 2 - Peach
Franchise: Super Mario
Debut: Super Mario Bros. (1985)
Creators: Shigeru Miyamoto; further designed by Yƍichi Kotabe
Major Releases: Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2/USA, Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, Paper Mario, Super Princess Peach

You cannot have a hero without someone to save, right?  Well, Peach happens to be that person about 90% of the time.  Princess Peach is the ruler of the Mushroom Kingdom, and for some reason Koopas find her particularly intriguing enough to kidnap all the time.  However, she has been able to duke it out against villainy, herself, when given the chance.

Note that this episode was completed before Mario Party 10 released, so its including in Future is explained by that.

Like with Mario, this required a lot of playing of older games.  We had to purchase Super Princess Peach, which I had all but completed in a rental before, just to ensure we got footage of the game.  Honestly, I found her to be rather interesting a character to cover, because she has a lot going on that most people might not see.  I mean, she has probably been in more video games than any other woman out there, and her moveset covers a lot of different influences, even if most of it originates from Super Mario Brothers 2, itself another interesting tale.  Anyways, onto the next part.  Hope you enjoyed it!
