Never heard of Bowsette? Then you’re missing out a lot on what the Internet could offer right now. Bowsette is the fusion of Princess Peach and Bowser from the Super Mario games. Love it or hate it, the fanart stirred the Internet for almost a week now. It turns out that this concept was actually an old idea from Nintendo.
The Birth Of Bowsette
The first Bowsette concept found on the Internet is a comic strip from Twitter user @ayyk92. Princess Peach both turned down Mario and Bowser when Bowser suddenly got a new idea. He put the Super Crown on his head and he became Bowsette. Princess Peach and Luigi were seen staring at the two who seem to be hooked up together.
This idea was born one week after the revealed new game feature in Super Mario Bros Deluxe where Peach and Toadette can fuse together to make Peachette. For some reason, the ball keeps rolling and a lot of fans made their own variation of Bowsette. Although Bowsette is a very recent creation, it seems like the idea for it has been present for a long time now. And what’s even shocking is that the idea is from Nintendo itself.
According to @Sakusuru’s Twitter post, the idea of putting a crown and fusing was almost included in the Super Mario Odyssey. Instead of a crown, Bowser would use a hat and then throw it to Peach to take over her body. This creation is called “Bowser Peach”. However, the idea was not added in the final cut.
So in THE ART OF SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY that came out in Japan today, there’s an scrapped concept of Bowser taking over Peach’s body with his own version of Cappy.
Kind of surreal how there could have been an “official” Bowsette long before the fan one took over the internet. pic.twitter.com/gSMOqNDKKf

Japanese website J-Cast News asked Nintendo of Japan if they have something to say about the character, in which the company replied: “Concerning the drawings and other things uploaded to the Internet, we have no comment.”
