  1. You know, comparing Miyamoto's habit of retconning to Iizuka's, I notice Miyamoto is more upfront about what he says being retcons than Iizuka is. I mean just compare what Miyamoto says about the Koopalings not being Bowser's blood children (going out of his way to say that them not being blood related is the current story) to whatever Iizuka's been saying for a bunch of years.

      Iizuka doesn't have the balls to admit that Sonic is not a hedgehog anymore or that he is Big's mother, like Miyamoto did.

      Miyamoto is still guilty of overiding the Paper Mario series to Iizuka-like levels.

      The Koopalings retcon reveal is just the Mario equivalent of the Chaotix retcon reveal.

      Iizuka, while incompetent in most of his methods, seems to at least somewhat care about what he's saying. He tries to make sense of things the best way he can.

      Miyamoto, on the other hand, never gave a shit to begin with in this area.

      The koopalings being bowser's children in the first place was a localization thing, so Miyamoto was really just correcting what was meant to be the entire time

      If you're to take Iizuka at face value and not just respect that he says weird shit on the spot sometimes and look the other way, he's revealed some dumb illogical retcon every time a sonic game comes out for a while now

       No it wasn't. SMB3 JP's manual has Bowser call them his children. And Miyamoto bothering to say that them just being Bowser's henchmen is the "current story" instead of the lore he planned the whole time points against what you say.

       just looked into it and you're right.

      They probably changed it because they like to play up the Bowser/Jr relationship and wanted Jr to have the privilege of being Bowser's son to himself.

      No doubt there.
