Well that's just peachy
Wario and Waluigi have been buddying around since the Mario Tennis days, and the dastardly duo has been together ever since. Mario and Luigi’s devilish doppelgangers came around decades ago, yet we’ve never seen any other mainline Mario characters get a ‘Wa’ makeover. Turns out there were actually plans to do just that, but they were left on the cutting room floor.
The original character designer for Waluigi has taken to their social media accounts to share never-before-seen art depicting an evil take on Princess Peach. Dubbed Wapeach, the image above shows the character design as a 3D model. She certainly has a different look from Princess Peach, but she’s decidedly more Peach than Waluigi or Wario.
Wapeach was originally in the works for Mario Power Tennis, but she obviously didn’t make the cut. This is due to Nintendo wanting to avoid comparisons to Doronjo from the Yatterman series. I guess Nintendo was extremely nervous about these potential comparisons, as Wapeach is still nowhere to be seen decades later!
