Ever heard of Bowsette, the Nintendo fan character? Of course you have. The first time was probably around the publication of the New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe trailer, the re-release of a Wii U platform game that will soon hit Switch. It was there where the creators decided to introduce a new character - Peachette, a combination of Toadette and Princess Peach. The appearance of the new character aroused the imagination of Mario fans worldwide, who decided to create another hybrid character. That’s how Bowsette was born - a transformation of the game’s antagonist, Bowser.

Nintendo fans instantly fell in love with the character, especially due to how the characters significantly diverges from the family-friendly heroes of the "great N" games. Unfortunately (especially for the fans), Nintendo recently put up some critical infor on the New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe website - only Toadette can wear the crown of Princess Peach (the object that has the power to change a character). Thus, the developer made the situation clear to any fans who were hoping that Bowsette would appear in the game. The reason for this is probably the family image of the company, to which the character invented by the fans would not fully fit.

New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe will debut on Nintendo Switch on January 11, this year. The production will be an exclusive title. The story of Bowsette will most likely be developed by the fan community on its own and the character will remain non-canon. Below you can see one of the fans' works depicting the heroine.
