A Bowser origins story would be kind of cool.

You mean even before Yoshi's Island?

Yeah, I suppose. Something explaining his obsession with deposing the royal family and ruling the Mushroom Kingdom, as well as explaining why he hates the Mario bros so much. Maybe I’m thinking of something too deep for this IP lol

While I'd love to see some sort of adventurous platformer where you can spin around in the shell and stuff, I'd see a strategy game happening, placing your minions around the kingdom (groups, castles, bosses) to stop "intruders" (Mario lol) from accessing the huge castle in the center of the map.



I'd rather have a Daisy spin-off, she deserves it.

I'd like a strategy game where you play as Bowser and you basically go through levels of increasing difficulty plotting out the kidnapping of Peach... would be pretty interesting in my opinion lol.

Or a full on 3D platformer with him would work too... either way I would definitely like to see Bowser get his own proper spin-off game.



Yes, that would be awesome. I would not mind a Ganondorf spin-off either. For instance, Ganondorf's rise to power over the seven year time skip in Ocarina of Time.

Excellent idea! Would be great to play as Bowser. My take would be similar to Wario land on the GC where it's completely Bowsers' world, his own world with no Mario and different enemies. Also, the beat 'em up style gameplay instead of platforming would be a good idea.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

It does seem like it could be an interesting game, however I don't know if that's something Nintendo will ever do.

You didn't really specify what type of game this would be. Did you have a platformer in mind? Would it be 2D or 3D?

I like this idea. Bowser is world-renowned and yet he's never really had his own game. Platformers tend to have agile characters that can move quickly, so Bowser doesn't seem like the best fit for that type of game, but maybe a beat 'em up of some sort.

Earlier I thought maybe it could be an over-the-top brawler, where Bowser would use actions similar to his Smash Bros. moveset to destroy anything in his way. Think of it as like The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction, but the ultimate goal is to have Bowser succeed in a new evil plot, or to take out a new villain like I said earlier.

Why do I want to see that now? XD

I always wanted to know how Bowser is able to get to the castle before Mario does lol  He must have some secret tunnel that goes to the end of each castle and knows which castle Mario goes to lol (At least in the first game)

Made more sense in SMB3 where he had his kids in each castle lol

And the fact that he has kids, where's Mrs Bowser??  Why is Bowser Jr the only one that looks like Bowser?  I think Mrs Bowser cheated on him cause the other kids dont look like him lol

Those were the things I thought of growing up with Nintendo/Mario lol

That's something else I'd like to see as well.

Agreed, as a brawler would work best for Bowser's violent temperament.

Yep, lol and definitely no Mario in it. I wouldn't like it to be a "Mario game in reverse". I also loved Wario's piledriver move in his Wario land game on GC. "Have-a-rotten-a day!" Lol. Bowser could have a similar attacking style.

And maybe have a throwback to Bowser's Inside Story by having Bowser fighting giant mecha created to stop him.
