They get to be the little spoon. A new experience, if nothing else
Well we need both, don't we? Tall amazons like Rosalina and Samus and shorties like Edelgard and (some) Zeldas
WOW. I had no idea she was that tall either.. Which means Daisy is also around there too. I think she’s a little shorter.
I would say that most Zeldas are actually reaaaally tall women.
I can't believe an actual answer was produced.Miyamoto wanted her to be bigger to differentiate her from the existing cast--not bigger as in "moderately tall", like inhumanly big, because he had a complex about them adding a new princess to the main stable when they already had two or something. He talked about it in Iwata Asks and other places, IIRC.
e: one quick quote from Iwata Asks http://iwataasks.nintendo.com/interviews/#/wiiu/super-mario-3d-world/0/3
Miyamoto When Super Mario Galaxy first came out, I was a little hung up on why Rosalina was showing up when Princess Peach was already there. I thought it was fine as long as it was only Super Mario Galaxy, and we made her design so she's a little bigger. But all of a sudden she was a regular character in Mario Kart as just a regular girl, even her size turned to normal.
Iwata As they say, time solves all things.
Miyamoto If I think about it now, I'm like, "What was I so hung up on?!" I guess I was still green. (laughs)
All the more reason to get Edelgard into Smash, so we can have both Rosalina, a featherweight giantess, and Edelgard, a smol heavyweight swinging an axe larger than her.
Finding a woman as tall as Rosalina is difficult. All the women I end up dating are in the low-mid 5 foot range. My suffering is eternal.
