Hm, Bowser Jr. looks more like Baby Bowser in that artwork.
It's the stylized nose at this angle, resembles Baby Bowser's stylized SMW2 sprite and depictions based directly off it. Given Jr. was design-wise (directly or indirectly through Koopa Kid) based off Baby Bowser himself, though, that's a given.

I'm starting to get redundant remake vibes again.

I mean I already did but I was HOPING they'd add more new stuff this time but so far it's just the same as before and in fact worse in some areas due to the slower pacing of some battles.
I didn't have high hopes to begin with, considering they didn't even add a Battle Ring to the SSS remake.
The only real thing I can see them adding is a Bowser Battle Ring or maybe a further superboss after Bowser X, and neither of those are likely. Like with SSSDX, it seems like most of the new stuff will be in the secondary mode.

I apologize if I'm sounding a bit pushy/picky but where are like more screenshots of the story in Bowser Jr's Jounrey? all I've seen so far is just the alliance fights.
They've been weirdly coy about the story in Bowser Jr.'s Journey. Notice that the US site doesn't have any of the cutscene images from the Japanese site nor does it really explain the story of the mode like the Japanese site did.

The Cat Mario Show touched upon the remake a bit (6:55):

You can see some previously unseen areas for the Bros like Bowser's memory banks, as well as a quick look at the new title screen. None of the footage of Bowser nor Bowser Jr. is new though (unless you missed Madame Broque in BJR in the overview trailer).

Japanese footage is starting to go up. Also somebody ripped the entire soundtrack already.

Music feels very....not different. Like it's technically different yes but no better or worse.

Yeah, it's mostly remasters it seems.
Which is actually pretty disappointing since the new tracks sound so much better.
They even gave Fawful and the Dark Star new tracks and it's kinda jarring just how much more effort went into those + the Bowser Jr.'s Journey ones

I think they did a better job capturing the atmosphere of the final boss music in this remake than the Superstar Saga one, personally. Not to say the new rearrangement of the Superstar Saga music is bad, but I think the BIS remake one is better overall.

At this point I just need to know if they bothered to include a gauntlet for Bowser.

I've heard there was one for Giant Battles, no word on normal boss battles. I haven't gotten far enough to see for myself yet.

Well lots of video footage of bosses and stuff on youtube now.

They seemed to have gotten rid of Bowser's giant attack in the gauntlet and instead he now heals himself with a drumstick when he reaches his halfway angry phase.

Either that or it just didn't happen in the video I watched.

I've been watching footage (I've seen pretty much 90% at this point), but I haven't heard that track. The icon give me pause as to whether or not it's actually in the game. I'll need to check the soundtrack rip to see if its there.

UPDATE: Okay I checked, and yeah it's in the soundtrack rip. If it isn't used for the part where Fawful gives Bowser the Mushroom, then it's probably unused.

It's definitely there, I'm the one who uploaded that video. It's sorted with the sound effects though, not the music. The filename is "se_gerako_shop_theme"

some of these sprites look less like they made new ones from scratch and more like they took an old sprite and just "painted over it" so to speak.

I also have to question some of the altered usage of sound and music in some areas, making the presentation suffer considerably.

Feeling pretty underwhelmed thus far.
