King of Spades
We know it's possible because Nintendo has the code for a playable Bowser. (Mario Odyssey)
I'm not sure why fanmade stuff factors here. I don't see it likely that particular possibility will play out but I can't say Bowser getting his own game is nigh impossible. We do live in a timeline where Peach and Toad have their own games, and the beginning of Yoshi and Wario and Luigi getting their games, well, there has to be a beginning, no? Mario + Rabbids is one of the weirdest things to come out during the 2010s concerning the Mario ip, so consider that too.but knowing Nintendo, they would likely never do it because we've seen how stingy Nintendo is with fanmade stuff based on their properties.
edit: and thinking about that line more...there's just so many possibilities with giving Bowser his own 3D platformer, but knowing Nintendo, they would likely never do it because we've seen how stingy Nintendo is with fanmade stuff based on their properties.
Which is why even after over 30 years, Bowser does not have his own game for there isn't any real concept that he could do that Nintendo couldn't do with any of their other characters or franchises.I play devil's advocate, but isn't Mario already perfectly capable of "fire [...] to clear out obstacles and enemies" and can't he also ""could grow in size in order to take out threats much larger"? Nintendo might be asking themselves, why make Bowser do this when Mario can? And why should Bowser be a star? I know Nintendo comes off as stingy, but we should also be aware that thousands of ideas float around during game development, and they go through a lot of consideration before finally morphing into the final product.
Them taking down fan works is just out of spite and control. It has no bearing on the creative process that's poured into the games.
Feels like this is just trying to be Eggman or Dr. Wily though.Funnily enough I feel Tatanga could've spent that role being the weakling behind giant mechs
Sounds like Super Mario Odyssey to me. Probably could be better if he can enter his shell and spin through everything. That would be awesome.An Interesting genre that could work for a Bowser game could be a hack and slash, just run in and use Bowser's brute strength to mow everything down.
