I'm pretty sure she's been demoted to secondary cast like Daisy and Waluigi.
It can look that way since she's been absent since 3D World, but the team is still interested in using her. Aside from Odyssey, the developers also had ideas for putting her in Captain Toad's ending.

I was actually 100% expecting it but I don't really care either way. Her story in SMG was nice and touching but I still don't get why fans have made such a big deal about her.

It really bugs me too how her actual spoken lines are just "yes", etc.

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.

Wow. That looks soooo much better than the New Donk City we got in game. I really wish they would've gone this route instead of the hyper realistic stuff.

Oh man what is this art, this looks fantastic. Can the next Mario look like this please?

That's a lot more interesting to me than NDC (and I'm fully aware of what they were going for with Odyssey/NDC).

I so want to see Casual Rosalina just out in an urban area and be like "Oh, hello Mario. Looking after the Lumas is a lot of work, but they don't take up all my time, and the stars can manage themselves once in a while."

This is more characterization than all the other Mario characters besides maybe Luigi.

It's also cool to have a "princess-like" character like Rosalina that isn't just a damsel and actually does stuff and has her own story that has no relation to Mario himself and that isn't tied to the Mushroom Kingdom overused stuff.

Rosalina is the best mario character, fuck are y’all on about?

Great design, actual great backstory, this whole ethereal vibe to her... amazing character

One of the original ending ideas for Captain Toad was that it would be revealed the entire game was a story book that Rosalina was reading. This fits with how the game's levels are presented as chapters in a book.

Source for this? That’s pretty cool

During development it was discussed whether the story of Captain Toad: Treasure Trackerwould be connected to Super Mario 3D World, or whether it would be a separate story being read by Rosalina. In the end, the former idea was chosen. According to director Shinya Hiratake, "If we had gone with the book idea, Rosalina might've appeared in person at the end of the game[...]"[2]

Thanks, this would’ve been pretty interesting but I see why they didn’t go for it. It worked in Galaxy 2 because it was obviously a sequel. Treasure Tracker has nothing to do with Galaxy so Rosalina showing up might’ve confused people who didn’t know who she was
Rosalina has since been established, so I don't that would be a problem. She's appeared in every spinoff since Galaxy

Also whenever Rosalinas not on screen, all the other characters should be asking, "where's Rosalina?"

I don't mind her, just again, don't think she needs to be in everything.

I'm glad she didn't. We got a good compromise with Pauline, since no other princesses besides Peach showed up.

Rosalina is much more important today than Daisy and Waluigi have ever been.
The benefit of having an entire mainline 3D game revolve around her and her story vs only spin-offs and being in a Gameboy Original title.

The first time I saw a picture of Rosalina from Galaxy I swore it was Peach on a different hairdo. The fact that they look so alike makes her boring. At least Nintendo could've given us a bit of diversity and make her brown or black. Opportunity missed....

I appreciate how Odyssey had a lot of the main cast show up, even if the story was centered on Mario/Peach/Bowser.

The most prominent being Pauline for New Donk City, but Luigi and Captain Toad also show up in every world. Then there's in the post game
Yoshi, Toad, and Toadette. Also Rosalina had the sprite cameo and DK was there as his original 8 bit self.

There should've been a world that was just all the characters out-of-wardrobe, like actors chilling backstage after a show. Miyamoto even thinks of them as performers. Rosalina is chillin with a guitar, Luigi is way into coffee, Waluigi is like the most normal of everyone.
