We have received some very interesting news related to Nintendo, since one of the ideas that were being considered at the time of creating a Mario Tennis installment has just been revealed: Walupeach, a new character who could be Princess Peach’s nemesis , something that Shigeru Miyamoto did not take very well.
Miyamoto saved us from this creation
As you surely know, Mario and Luigi have had a continuous battle against Wario and Waluigi, 2 characters specially created to make life miserable for the most famous plumbers in the world.
However, it seems that when the team behind Mario Tennis wanted to do something similar with Peach, Miyamoto did not accept the idea and dismissed it without thinking, considering that it would simply be another version of Doronjo, the antagonist of the popular anime series. Yatterman.
buoyed by the OK & the knowledge that Nintendo was open to good ideas, they tried to pitch “Walupeach” for their next game, but apparently Miyamoto vetoed it before they could even show him their design, on the lines that “I know it’s gonna be just like Doronjo, so don’t bother”

It is worth mentioning that the previous tweet was published by a user who reviewed old interviews conducted by the Japanese media Nindori in 2008, where the leader of Mario Tennis, Shugo Takahashi, revealed his idea for the new character without success.
Thanks to this situation, Takahashi was left with the desire to shape his idea and Peach will have to settle for having Bowser as his main enemy.
What do you think of the idea of Walupeach? Tell us in the comments.
