    This is a 2-part news article about Nintendo's hottest craze on Twitter, Bowsette.

    Who the Hell Is Bowsette and Why Is the Internet Obsessed With Her

    If you've made it this far, it's already too late. The phenomenon known as Bowsette is dominating the internet and there's no turning back from the character created through a cruel morphing of Peach and Bowser.

    Seriously, the Bowsette hybrid has gone on to inspire countless amounts of fan art, cosplay, and even a custom amiibo in just a matter of days. Most depict Bowsette as Peach donned with black apparel, spikes, two horns, and a strange affect that makes it hard to look away.

    What makes this lunacy even more absurd is the fact that Bowsette is actually Bowser who has been transformed, seemingly leaving Peach out of the entire process.

    So, how did it come to this? It all started with a short segment from this month's Nintendo Direct. During the announcement trailer for New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, Toadette was revealed as a new playable character. Then, without warning, a new power-up known as the Super Crown made its first appearance. Touching it as Toadette will transform you into a Peach look-alike named Peachette and the implications of such a powerful item were quickly glossed over. It was a puzzling moment for both the port and the Mario universe as a whole, but nobody could have predicted the absurdity that would soon follow on social media.

    Concept Art Shows Bowsette Was Nearly Canon

    Well what do you know: Nintendo had thought of Bowsette before the internet did, and the character was nearly in Super Mario Odyssey.

    Though Bowsette is a character that took the internet by storm, it isn’t a real Nintendo creation, rather fan art that was spawned from the odd introduction of Peachette during this month’s jam packed Nintendo Direct. Or, at least we thought this idea of a Bowser and Princess Peach combination was entirely made up by fans, until today’s release of The Art of Super Mario Odyssey in Japan.

    Twitter user Nao (@Sakusuru) posted this shot of the book full of official concept art today. It allegedly shows a concept where Bowser throws a hat similar to Cappy that allows him to take over/capture Princess Peach’s body, effectively making this a more official version of Bowsette. To further verify these images, more Twitter users that got their hands on the art book posted pictures of the same page online.
