My guess would be that Bowser has his enemies taken/possessed by the big bad guy and he's going to play likely a supporting role, but jury's still out if he's going to Antasma Cursa or something. I did joke on the Discord that he could also just have literal seconds of screentime before fading in the background to go on vacation. :P
Honestly I’m not surprised that they made a sequel. It’s one of the switches best selling games. And I’m happy that they added new characters to it. I feel like this one is going to be a worthwhile sequel
Well it's a mild disappointment it's not this year but it's not a big deal. There were games like Ultra Smash that, iirc, got released pretty early after announcement and had just silence soon afterward. Was clearly a rushed game off the wazoo. I mean how long were they working on this game? They've probably been doing this while we've been asking for a sequel.
I'm hoping they'll just show more of the game after announcement, hope we don't get a long drought after like what happened with some games. Oh and that movie. That one movie.
