Bowser, Mario and Luigi’s long-time nemesis, still doesn’t have a game of his own. You’re probably dreaming of using Bowser, right?
Well, what if I tell you that there is a game where you can play as Bowser? There is and it is available on the Nintendo DS.
The Mario and Luigi Bowser’s Inside Story Game for the Nintendo DS is the third title in the Mario and Luigi series of games and in this game, you can make use of Bowser and his abilities.
The story of the game begins when a mysterious disease has plagued the inhabitants of the Mushroom Kingdom. The leaders of the kingdom wanted a meeting to discuss the matter.
Apparently, the people who suffer from the “Blorb disease” ate what is called a “Blorb Mushroom”. It was also made known that a mysterious salesman was the one responsible for giving out the mushrooms. This mysterious salesman is none other than Fawful.
One day, Bowser went to the Mushroom Kingdom in order to kidnap Princess Peach (like he always does) but was defeated by Mario and Luigi.
After moping because of his defeat, he comes across Fawful and he was given a mushroom that could help him defeat the brothers.
Little did he know that that mushroom was the “Vacuum Shroom” and after eating it, Bowser sucks almost all of the inhabitants of the Mushroom Kingdom and he cannot stop it. After sucking almost everyone, Bowser passes out.
Upon waking up, he notices that there are no inhabitants in the Mushroom Kingdom anymore and Fawful assumed the role as the ruler of the kingdom.
Fawful’s assistant, Midbus, went to Bowser’s castle and assumed the role as the king of the castle as well.
Since Bowser had no memory of what he did, he doesn’t know what to do. Fortunately, Starlow, an inhabitant of the Mushroom Kingdom, acts as the messenger to Bowser.
During the course of the game, Mario and Luigi will be inside Bowser’s body and both of them will help Bowser from the inside. Ultimately, Bowser defeats Fawful and everything went back to normal. Bowser was even rewarded with a cake for his unlikely heroic efforts.
The Mario and Luigi Bowser’s Inside Story Game for the Nintendo DS makes Bowser the hero of the game. This is a turn-based RPG game where you roam around the Mushroom Kingdom and fight against Fawful’s minions.
Sometimes, the game goes back to both of the brothers that will spend most of their time inside Bowser’s body.
The X and Y controls are dedicated to Bowser and the A and B buttons are used to control the brothers.
Bowser deals incredible damage and he can do two attacks: he punches enemies and he can also breathe fire for some AoE damage.
The Mario and Luigi Bowser’s Inside Story Game for the Nintendo DS is a truly remarkable game as it makes use of Mario and Luigi’s long-time rival, Bowser. If you like to play as Bowser, then definitely try out the Mario and Luigi Bowser’s Inside Story Game for the Nintendo DS.
