A few days ago, a Nintendo spokesperson said the company had nothing to say about drawings and “other things” uploaded to the internet. This was a response to a question about social media superstar, Bowsette. That wasn’t enough to stop one fan from starting a petition to make the fan-made character a legitimate thing – asking for her inclusion as a trophy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
The latest news related to the subject of Bowsette this time comes from an official Nintendo source. Twitter user Sakusuru has tweeted an interesting photo of a Super Mario Odyssey art book that has just been released in Japan. Inside, is allegedly a scrapped concept of Bowser who has taken over Peach’s body with his own version of Cappy. As can been seen in the image, she’s basically the official Nintendo version of Bowsette, created long before the fan-made one.
In case you haven't heard about Bowsette, the character became a superstar on social media over the past week when an illustrator located in Malaysia tweeted a comic featuring the Peach and Bowser mashup inspired by an item set to appear in New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe.
