Before anything, it’s crucial to quickly go through what exactly Princess Peach: Showtime is. Princess Peach Showtime is an action-adventure game published by Nintendo that takes place in the Super Mario Universe. While this is indeed a Mario spin-off game, the major difference between this and, say, Luigi’s Mansion, is that you play as the Princess of the Mushroom Kingdom, Princess Peach.

Things are a little different with this game, however, as instead of having the traditional mushroom, fox, and fireball flower power-ups, Princess Peach has a wide selection of brand-new transformations. To understand these transformations, you first have to understand the overall story of the game quickly.

Princess Peach: Showtime! has Princess Peach save the Sparkle Theater from the Wicked Grape. She isn’t alone, however, as with the aid of the Theater’s Guardian Stella, she can change into different forms based on the stage production. All of these forms, or transformations, can grant Peach a variety of different powers and abilities that she can then use to dominate the opposition and clear every stage.

Now, based on what we’ve seen from the various trailers Nintendo has released for the game, Princess Peach: Showtime! will have multiple types of stages, and the stages will likely determine which transformation Peach is able to use.

For example, the trailer that revealed the Dashing Thief Peach transformation showed a stage that seemingly had Peach dashing on top of rooftops. On the other hand, the Mermaid transformation was an underwater level, and we’re sure other stages will follow the same or similar trend.

Now that you know what Princess Peach: Showtime! is, it’s time to go through the release date. Princess Peach: Showtime! is scheduled to release on March 22, 2024, and with the amount of content we’ve seen so far thanks to the various trailers Nintendo has put out, we highly doubt the game will be delayed.

At the time of writing this article, Princess Peach: Showtime! is only confirmed to be released for the Nintendo Switch. It’s available to preorder both physically and digitally from the Nintendo Store.

With that being said, the game will likely also be playable on the upcoming Nintendo Switch 2. If it doesn’t get an official port to that console, then it will likely be playable through the rumored Nintendo Switch backward compatibility.

As for when the Nintendo Switch 2 might be released, Princess Peach: Showtime! marks the last major first-party title that has a release date on the Nintendo Switch. All other major releases are remakes or remasters, even though there are some notable third-party releases like Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes. Additionally, there’s also the Metroid title that’s been in development since 2019, but it doesn’t have a release date as of yet.

Therefore, the Nintendo Switch’s successor will very likely be released sooner rather than later, which means there will be another platform that will be able to play Princess Peach: Showtime!

Finally, before we conclude this article, we’re sure some of you who are new to gaming and don’t know how Nintendo handles first-party games will wonder whether Princess Peach: Showtime will be released on the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X/S. Well, unfortunately, the game will likely only be playable on Nintendo consoles and won’t get released anywhere else.

After all, Nintendo is notorious for being extremely protective of its first-party titles, which is why titles from series like The Legend of Zelda and Mario have never been released for a non-Nintendo platform. This also means that Princess Peach: Showtime! will not be released on PC, either through Steam or through a different game store like the Epic Games Store. In a way, it’s the same story as Helldivers 2 coming to Xbox.
