While 2013 was declared the Year of Luigi, Nintendo of America’s Twitter account has stated that August is the month of Princess Peach. Seems kinda tacky to only give the leading lady of their longest running franchise a month versus the year that Luigi got, but Nintendo isn’t exactly being forthcoming with why it’s Peach month, either.

Given that Luigi had several games released within his year dedicated to the green brother, we’re wondering if Nintendo isn’t planning on announcing something to do with Princess Peach this month, perhaps in a new Nintendo Direct. The last game Peach starred in by herself was the fantastic platformer Super Princess Peach on Nintendo DS. Maybe we’ll see a sequel announced for Nintendo 3DS? Yoshi’s Island got a sequel, so perhaps it’s not too far-fetched.
What do you think? Would you like to play a sequel to Super Princess Peach either on the Nintendo 3DS or the Wii U?
