With Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury now available, fans of the Wii U original and newcomers alike have been enjoying the new content that the Nintendo Switch upgrade has to offer. Going by a recent datamine of the game, it seems Nintendo may have also had plans for a playable character at some stage in development.

The discovery was made by Twitter user Nickolox, who found a voice line and over 200 animations for the character Toadette.

 

 

As for that dialogue, Nickolox managed to load it through the game’s character selection screen.

 

 

While it’s possible that a playable Toadette was scrapped, there’s always the possibility that future DLC will allow her to join Mario’s feline-friendly adventure.
