Cat[girl]urday: Long Live Bowsette!

Posted on
Due to my love of Nekomimis I have decided to post something catgirl related each week! It maybe cute. It maybe sexy. It may even be a bit disturbing…

Bowsette would be OP!

The day has come. Nintendo has officially tried to make Bowsette non-canon. The Big N updated the description of the Super Crown to read “When Toadette finds one of these, she can transform into the Super-powered Peachette. (Sorry Luigi-only Toadette can use this item!)”. Although many people are saddened by this news many saw it coming. Even though Nintendo has made some sly references to questionable memes in the past (like Doc Louis telling Little Mac “After you win son, I feel like taking a ride on your bike!”) Nintendo is not touching Bowsette.

In many ways, this is a good thing. Part of the reason Bowsette has become as big as she has is because of the vague nature of her concept. As with other fandoms, like Kantai Collection and Touhou fans, get to uses their imaginations to fill in the gaps. Bowsette is seen as everything from a loving mother to a transgender icon. Each of these interpretations is true in its own right. I do not see this fandom going away any time soon. After all, you cannot put the toothpaste back in the tube!

Also… Did Nintendo just make Luigi wanting the Super Crown cannon?

So what do you think?
