Nintendo apparently filed a Koopa (Bowser) trademark

The story, told from Bowsers perspective would be a good twist. A la Disney's Malificent

Bowser, the purest koopa in the kingdom of Mushroom, falls in love with Queen Apple. Over the course of the years, their relationship flourishes until the queen betrays his lover.

Now Bowser wants to take revenge by kidnapping her daughter, Peach and telling her the whole truth about his mother
and the nature of her brother, Bowsy

Skimming the title, I thought this was Nintendo using the name Koopa for their new Internet Browser.

I'd like a to see a Bowser game where the goal is to enact evil and keep the Mario Bros. from stopping you.

Would Nintendo actually do that? They could googly-eye it up and make it kid friendly.

the two times bowser was playable one had some eldritch abomination eating up the world because of some romeo and juliet plot, and the other involved some body snatcher shit and really odd fetishes

There was a leaked game called Bowser's Minions, which is meant to come packaged with the Superstar Saga remake. It's probably that.

Good thing Bowser hasn't been done and is actually well loved~

Well, he has a starring role in one of the RPG's

I want a Bowser game where one player is Bowser and acts a sort of Dungeon Master for the other players, building levels and enacting traps and such. That kind of mechanic with the tight controls of a Mario game would be great.

Last time Nintendo had a trademark like this it was for Hyrule so there's only one thing this can mean.

I do hope this comes into fruition. As much as I love Bowser's Inside Story, it's high time Bowser gets his own, focused game.

I want this as well, i want a game that has in the very least light strategy elements to represent bowser conquering some land or something as he goes through the levels.


Unrelated: I just realized for the first time you're wearing an avatar that's literally your user name.

would be cool as fuck

also a platinum bowser action game would be swell

I've used Doggie a few times before too :p

Because it's a terrible name and the Japanese name is better.

the naming convention is weird when localizing

Magikoopa for instance is a race name and the wizard's name is Kamek, but in Japan both race and character name is Kamek

Koopa in Japan apparently is not the race name as it is Bowser's name, but rather Turtle Tribe, and the various koopas have their own names

Koopa Musou

Fixed to make it a bit more inline with JP naming conventions.

Bowser: "DO NOT PURSUE MARIO."

Junior: "I GOT THIS!"

Bowser: "WHAT DID I JUST TELL YOU?!"
