I adore Paper Mario. TTYD

the train was my favorite part.

I'm hoping that paper Mario SS will be as good as TTYD. I'm not excepting it to be better though.

You know, I think someone at Nintendo higher up LOATHES Mario 3, and wants people to get full-on hype backlash against it by shoving as many references of it into every Mario game. I say this because this happened with Mario Sunshine. I seriously remember half of people's problems with Mario Power Tennis when it first came out were "STOP WITH THE SUNSHINE REFERENCES, NO ONE THINKS IT'S AS GOOD AS THE OLD GAMES, GET OVER IT NINTENDO".

Nah, they just like referencing Super Mario Bros 3 because they want to stir up hype and get fans of the NES games to buy into the newer titles.

And as for the Mario Sunshine stuff in the Gamecube era, that kind of thing happens every generation. Ever notice how all SNES spinoffs referenced Super Mario World a lot? How the Nintendo 64 games referenced Super Mario 64 a lot? How the early DS games reused a whole ton of stuff from Super Mario 64 DS, like Mario Kart DS's entire mission mode and most sprites used in New Super Mario Bros? The rule of thumb is simple; whenever a new Mario game comes out, every spinoff in that generation will reference the heck out of that new Mario game.

What I'm seriously disappointed in is the apparent lack of references to Galaxy 1 and 2 in this game. Did they forget it's existence?

I don't think anything will ever beat Thousand Year Door, it's just perfect from start to finish

Isn't the whole sticker festival/comet thing basically akin to the story in the two Mario Galaxy games? That could be counted as a Mario Galaxy reference right off the bat.

But I'm not surprised it doesn't reference them that much yet, the only real appropriate place to reference Mario Galaxy stuff is an outer space setting, and if there's one in this game, it's probably right near the end.

Not really, the last games had references to games by different developers. Why else was there a Pianta Mafia, Shine Sprites as level up items and various other Mario Sunshine references in Thousand Year Door? They even had that cola from Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga!

Well yeah, of course there are NSMB references. It sells well, so Nintendo wants the people who buy it to try out Paper Mario (hence why the style of some backgrounds are similar). But it's not like it's only referencing NSMB Wii. Are the stickers NSMB like? The items? The story? The music? There's plenty of room for Mario Galaxy references in there.

But this game has New Super Mario Bros. Wii references all over it, right down to the worlds.

other than penguin suits and propeller hats there's nothing that could be references specifically to NSMBWii. Unless you get Luigi and two Toads as party members.

Maybe the backgrounds? These hills look familiar:

and these snowy scenes:

Heck, the game even has Ice Bros in one level, and didn't that enemy debut in New Super Mario Bros Wii?

There has to be some references here and there, it’s a paper Mario game.
The first boss you face in Super Paper Mario had a Wii Shop channel loading sign. Also in TTYD the GBA Mailbox thingy has a couple of famous Mario music like the snow world in SMB3, title music in Super Mario World........
Also I’m curious of what role Browser Jr will have. Hopefully there will be more villains in the mix as well like TTYD and Super had.
(PS If I remember correctly Browser Jr. first made an appearance in Sunshine so 1 GameCube game reference so far)
