Are Mario and Peach Finally Getting Married in New <i>Smash Bros.</i> Game?

For almost three decades, Mario and Peach have done everything together: parties, kart racing, sports, even fighting. But if a picture released for the new Smash Bros. game is any indication, Mario and Peach might finally be getting married.

In a picture taken by the game’s director Masahiro Sakurai and posted on the Smash Bros. official site, a close-up is shown of what looks like Mario placing a ring on the princess’ hand. Somehow after years of risking the lives of both him and his brother for the love of the princess, Mario has never put a ring on it.

It may be too early to start picking up gifts at the Mushroom Kingdom’s Bed, Bath and Beyond though, as Sakurai also posted a message on Miiverse stating “The ring is for whom?” Also, it looks as it the ring is on the wrong finger, but who knows what weird marital traditions a land full of Toads has anyways.

We’ll just have to wait until the release of Smash Bros. on the Wii U in 2014 to see it Mario does in fact get down on one knee and pop the question—or if he’ll continue playing with this poor girl’s heart.
