We’re still doing Bowsette stuff? OK, here’s the end of New Super Mario Bros Wii, modified by StupidMarioBros1Fan to replace Bowser with a giant, fire-breathing Bowsette.
As far as Gita and I were concerned, only one video game news story happened this week: Bowsette. We declared on Twitter earlier this week that we’d do a whole episode of Kotaku XP devoted to her. We didn’t realise until yesterday that we needed a full hour to talk about her. If you’d like, you can call this week’s episode of Kotaku XP “The Bowsette Gazette”.
Things have moved real fast for Bowsette. There is a Change.org “Bowsette is Real” page hoping to make the character cannon. That’s not all. Next month in Japan, there will be a Bowsette gathering with fan art and cosplay.
Nintendo has of course released official Peach Amiibo. But it’s up to people like GandaKris to turn them into something fans truly want.
