Nintendo is honoring Princess Peach with a set of appropriately coloured Pleasure-Cons. On Tuesday, the corporate posted on X (Twitter) {that a} set of pastel pink Pleasure-Con controllers will launch alongside Princess Peach: Showtime! on March 22.

The pair shall be bought for a restricted time on the Nintendo Retailer and “choose retailers.” Though the corporate hasn’t specified how a lot they’ll price, $80 — the usual Pleasure-Con pair going charge— is probably going a protected wager.

Nintendo already sells a pastel pink left Pleasure-Con, paired with a pastel yellow one as a part of a batch launched final summer time. So, if we’re being technical, the wholly authentic a part of Peach’s long-overdue tribute seems to be half a controller. Engadget reached out to Nintendo to ask if the shade of pastel pink in Peach’s set is equivalent to the one within the pink / yellow pairing because it seems to be within the promotional pictures beneath. We’ll replace this text if we hear again.

The pastel pink left Pleasure-Con (second from the appropriate), launched final summer time, seems an terrible lot like Peach’s tribute set.

In fact, the themed Pleasure-Cons are merely the undercard to the primary occasion of Princess Peach: Showtime! The pseudo-platformer, introduced throughout the September Nintendo Direct, has the perpetual damsel in misery taking heroic heart stage in a narrative about saving a theater (the Hamlet variety, not the Barbenheimer variety) from the villainous Grape and the Bitter Bunch.

Peach can wield a ribbon as a whip-like weapon, lent to her by the theater’s guardian, a floating star named Stella. (She could play the same position to Cappy in Tremendous Mario Odyssey and Prince Florian in Tremendous Mario Marvel). Peach may draw on her theatrical quick-change talents to remodel right into a ninja, swashbuckler, detective, patisserie, cowgirl and Kung-Fu artist — giving the frequent McGuffin in Mario’s tales enjoyable power-ups to counter these of her mustachioed beau.

Princess Peach: Showtime! is offered for pre-order now from Nintendo and Amazon. It and the pair of pastel pink Pleasure-Cons arrive on March 22. You’ll be able to watch the sport’s newest trailer beneath.
