Rosalina could have appeared in Super Mario Odyssey

3D Mario kind of felt like it was living in Galaxy's shadow before Odyssey, I think leaving Rosalina out of Odyssey was part of moving past that and being it's own thing.
Yeah this, most people would have hoped for a third Galaxy and the team wanted to move on.

With her guitar she most probably got the part of Pauline before it was changed

I feel she would have taken too much away from Pauline, and Rosalina was also in 3D World. it's best to let her sit out of main games before she gets stale and overused.

3 main games! So stale and overused! She would have stuck out like a sore thumb from all the unique and completely new characters in Odyssey!

Odyssey was only bland gameplay wise, for Mario it tried lots of fresh stuff.

Bland was 3d land , NSMB and 3D World
It’s hard for me to call 3D World bland when it was one of the most consistently inventive games I’ve played with something new and fresh every level. I really liked the incorporation of the official 2D art style in its Icons and promotional material. The Big Band soundtrack was also great. The world maps could have used some touching up, but otherwise, I think it did a great job and didn’t play it as safe as some people give it credit for.

Yeah 3D World was wild, every level was unique with it's own gimmick. It's just a pure joy to play and to look at. Every 3D Mario game is just awesome, I don't understand how it's even debatable, the people behind those games are some of the best designers in the entire world and the entire industry respect them.

Thank God she wasn't in Odyssey. She doesn't need to be shoe horned into everything. She's not necessary.
This is what I feel, though not as strongly. I liked her in Galaxy but that doens't mean she needs to be in every game now, and I prefer her as a side character.

Between this and the strange Isle Delfino hints, something tells me there were some cut Odyssey kingdoms that they are hopefully going to use in a sequel, judging by the lack of any substantial DLC.

Maybe this is why I felt Odyssey dropped off significantly after the Bowser fight. I didn't really enjoy the "Dark" and "Darker" side kingdoms, nor did I enjoy a lot of the filler-type moons that comprised the rest of the game.

A Sunshine and Galaxy Kingdom would've been a great way to end things off.

Here's hoping Princess Bowser makes an official appearence, too.

Don't think there's a good place for her in the final plot as it stands, but she would've been a fun postgame inclusion along the same sort of lines as tracking Peach down across the world.

Great design, though.

I'm pretty sure she's been demoted to secondary cast like Daisy and Waluigi.
Waluigi is in no way a "secondary" character, he has never even appeared in a proper Mario game he is Sports/board game filler at best. At least Daisy is the princess in Mario Land.

Hopefully they use this design in the sequel.

Love that design. Shame on you Nintendo for leaving out best princess.

Anyone know if there's a less blurry pic of it somewhere?

That appearance would make sense in the concept art of New Donk actually being Mario themed, she probably stands out too much in the "realistic" New Donk they went for though.

Rosalina in casual realistic clothes seems offputting, but she should have gotten at least a cameo.

Looks like she might basically be at daisy and waluigi tier now.
Its not offputting at all, infact its the exact opposite

This was found in the “Art of Super Mario Oddysey” book:



Why wasn’t this in the game? She looks amazing!
That's an incredible design. Maybe she was intended to be a musical contrast to Pauline's Big Band Jazz vibe and perform somber acoustic guitar songs. But man a real shame she isn't in Odyssey and especially without that outfit.

Also how wasn't she on the Moon level? Would have made total sense for her to be there.

Almost thought that was D'arcy Wretzky there. Seriously though, Rosalina should do a number in Galaxy 3. She and Pauline are so much better than vanilla Peach and Hi I'm Daisy. She was such a well-placed bonus playable in 3D World and until I went back to Link when BoTW Link appeared, she was my most played as MK8 driver.
