God Slayer Bowser...[edit]

Apparently, at a Japanese press conference, the big dark Bowser is known as God Slayer Bowser. Should we use that as a tentative name or...?PrPro03 (talk) 13:02, January 12, 2021 (EST)

I'm not too familiar with how we handle this sort of thing, but for now until it's name comes up in English, we could use it. If the page is created, it should be marked with {{another language}}. Master of Masters KHXBC.png Keyblade Master
name is pretty much confirmed to be made-up. BabyLuigiFire.png Ray Trace(T|C) 15:36, January 12, 2021 (EST)
I probably should have asked for a source first. Master of Masters KHXBC.png Keyblade Master
Yes, the name came from this Twitter user. I'd advise getting your source directly from official Nintendo-released material rather than someone's word from Twitter. SMB Smallmario.png Mario JC 19:45, January 12, 2021 (EST)
I found it's name: Fury Bowser --Chompers (talk) 14:51, January 13, 2021 (EST)

Cat coins[edit]

I'm not very sure about this idea, but it's possible that the small tokens could act like moon shards rather than green stars --Chompers (talk) 18:59, January 12, 2021 (EST)

Bowser's Fury formatting[edit]

Should we italicalise just "Bowser's Fury" as well, even if it's just talking about the mode itself? Master of Masters KHXBC.png Keyblade Master

If refered as full title (Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury is Nintendo Switch game.) then I yes, but if we are talking about mode as standalone entity (Bowser's Fury is new game mode added in SM3DW port.), then not. At least that's my opinion. Superbound (talk) 14:59, January 13, 2021 (EST)
Typically, for citations the greater project (e.g. album, book, video game, etc.) it italicized, but individual portions within are to just have quotation marks around them. The collection of short stories by J. D. Salinger is rendered as Nine Stories but one of the stories within is rendered as "Uncle Wiggily in Connecticut". The Beatles album is rendered as Abbey Road but an individual song on the album is rendered as "Come Together". For video games, I'm inclined to think the most appropriate render for individual modes or minigames within a larger package with follow a similar convention: the game as a whole is Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, but the latter mode itself should be rendered as "Bowser's Fury". - Nintendo101 (talk) 15:13, January 13, 2021 (EST)
I'm thinking it should be along the lines of Bowser's Minions and Bowser Jr.'s Journey, which are already italicised across different articles. We should instead determine whether standalone-adventure "sub-games" like these should be italicised or not. SMB Smallmario.png Mario JC 23:55, January 13, 2021 (EST)
Well, I can make a proposal about it, but I'm unsure what would be the definition. Would "a mode in the game that has significantly different gameplay" work? Superbound (talk) 10:40, January 20, 2021 (EST)
I wouldn't phrase it like that. Why would it matter if the mode has significantly different gameplay? - Nintendo101 (talk) 11:49, January 20, 2021 (EST)

I need to mention something. I brought up this discussion because at the time Bowser's Fury wasn't formatted in italics on this article, even though we had been doing that formatting with things like Minion Quest. Then after I created this section, I noticed that Bowser's Fury had been formatted like that in several other articles, so I went ahead and did the same here. Now I don't know if this discussion is entirely necessary. Master of Masters KHXBC.png Keyblade Master

I thought the gameplay value mattered since Bowser's Minions and Bowser Jr.'s Journey are italicized and have different gameplay, while Donkey Kong Adventure, another standalone mode, doesn't have that much distinct gameplay and I assumed that in consequence isn't italicized. Am I wrong? Do you have a better way to phrase it? Superbound (talk) 15:07, January 21, 2021 (EST)

Nintendo Life information[edit]

There has been a bunch of new info that has just surfaced, as described in this article from Nintendo Life We should get this added. --Moustachetana (talk) 07:37, January 17, 2021 (EST)
