Bowser: Minion Battle Royale is a 3D fighting game developed with the assistance of Nightcap Devs. for the Nintendo Switch. This game is inspired by the game Kirby: Battle Royale.


A Goomba can be seen walking in the Hallways of Bowser's Castle. The Goomba looks to his side and sees a poster hanging on the wall. The poster says:

"Bowser's Minion Tournament: A tournament to see wich minion is the strongest. The winner will of the tournament will recieve a million Coins and will be deemed the strongest minion of the Koopa Troop."

The Goomba quickly makes his way to the sign-up room. Once he arrives there,He signs up for the tournament and makes his way to the locker room. The Goomba looks around and sees all kinds of minions getting ready to battle. After making some preparations,An announcer requests everyone in the locker room to make their way to the arena.

Once they arrive at the Arena,They see Bowser standing on a stage. Bowser then proceeds to explain the rules of the tournament and rings a bell once he's done. Once the bell rings,All the minions in the Arena get into a fighting stance before jumping at each other.
