It's looking very good so far! Based on the battles we've seen it seems like it won't be exactly returning to the first 2 games styles, but I'm OK with that. As long as they can make the battles feel worthwhile I'll be happy. I'm in the minority that actually enjoyed Color Splash, but my biggest complaint was that the battles felt completely pointless.

TBH, I didn't have a problem with the story in Colour Splash. I have never played the previous games. I know it's probably a simple story, but it's Mario, so I don't really care.

It's more that the battle cards were pointless. And they introduced an enemy which could undo all the progress you made in a level, and that was the most annoying thing. I've spent hours looking for the last spots to fill in and get a 100%, then halfway through the game they introduce a mechanic to undo all of that.

@darkfenrir If that video is representative of the battle system, my enthusiasm for this game has just increased drastically. Still too early to say what the whole game will be like, but they have my attention now.

This gives me more hope that we'll see the 3D Mario games this year!

Same here! As a relative newcomer to Mario games (15 months or so!) I am very excited for any of the past games to be brought back on the Switch.

Not sure what I think of the trailer on this latest one but will make my mind up once more gameplay/information becomes available.

I've dabbled with the games here and there but never played a game in the series from start to finish. I look forward to Origami King being my first deep dive. It looks pretty terrific.

I'm all in for sure. Only played a tiny bit of the original though. I'm starting to really enjoy rpgs so this is great news

I just want to see the creativity from the originals come back. Sticker star was such a disappointment both in creativity and poorly thought out gameplay mechanics that i never even considered color splash when I heard it was similar. I don't want to play games with sticker star as the basis. I'll be watching this one carefully, but I'm not getting my hopes up until I see positive reviews.

I don't know how I feel about this game in particular (ask me again when it comes out and/or I play it). But this does confirm they're not going back to the formula of the first 2 games, and this confirms me that they're probably NEVER going back to it. The original Paper Mario is one of my favorite games of all time, and was unbelieveably important into getting me into JRPGs and the entirety of story based games. So even if this actually addresses the problems with the series as of late, I do find it upsetting that they can't just make a good Mario RPG anymore. Keep It Simple Stupid, comes to mind.

Like even with BOTW, it still feels like 3D Zelda is in that game, and the assumption is that the next one will have more of what people like about 3D Zelda. But considering Sticker Star sucked, and Color Splash bombed, if they were gonna bring back the old style of Paper Mario, it was gonna be here. So, the old style of games is dead. It is not coming back, and we just have to accept that.

That doesn't mean this game won't be good or even great. But it's just kinda sad that I know I'm never getting another game like those first two Paper Marios. At least not until some talented indie dev makes the spiritual successor to it anyway. Like I wonder if this is how Fallout fans or Sonic Adventure fans feel like.

sigh nothing I can do about this. I at least hope this game is the best it can be.

@kkslider5552000 To be fair, the only reason Color Splash bombed was due to being released at the tail end of the Wii U's life.

Also, I pretty much shared the same thoughts as you when I first saw it. It looks good, but I have to wait and see. I'll probably end up buying it just due to a lack of games I'm interested in.

PS: Am I the only one annoyed at the lack of voice-acting? Not a huge deal but it really does make Nintendo seem cheap.

@Snaplocket When Color Splash came out I was starved for games as a Wii U owner. And yet I didn't even touch it after getting burned by Sticker Star, where the first three are among my all time favorite games.

Timing didn't help, but that wasn't the only reason it bombed. Chances are I won't get this one either, unless word of mouth is really good. Sticker Star is one of the worst titles Nintendo has ever made, and it's legacy lives on.

And no I'm not exaggerating. Urban Champion may be worse, but that's not saying much.

Looks fun. I've never played Paper Mario but loved the Mario & Luigi rpg games for GBA and DS

I know I'm in the minority, but Color Splash was one of my top 5 favorite Wii U games. If you are able to understand that it is not an RPG in the vein of the first games and just play it on its own merits I thought it was great. Yes, I prefer RPGs and liked the first games better, but it was still really good. I played the first Paper Mario again not too long ago, and it's a great RPG but really could have been in any style. I love the way that the newer games really take the paper aesthetic to the next level and incorporate it into gameplay much more than the original did, and this one seems to be doing that as well. Hopefully it can combine the best parts of all the games.

I’ve enjoyed every mainline paper mario and completed all except sticker star.

@Xyphon22 I completely agree. The game looks beautiful and one of the mid level bosses is a steak.

I have very little opinion on the Sticker Star/color Splash since I've played neither of em, but there are 3 notable problems that has been echoed throughout and I do worry about if I plan on buying the game. The battle system from the post Super era.

1. Using Consumable attacks and ONLY consumable attacks.
2. Using a specific attack to make a boss vulnerable otherwise all other attacks are next to useless. (Which makes it doubly a problem since that's compounded due to point one.)
3. And little to no rewards after battling making random encounters pretty much pointless.

The battle system being similar to the first Paper Mario games or not. I just want PM:TOK nix those problems outta here.

BTW. From the screenshots I've saw, there's no hints of fighting bowsers army. Well the paper ones at least and the origami ones are taking it's place.

Mario does meet up with Bowser, Bowser Jr, a magikoopa and a bom-omb. (Yes, they aren't as sharply dressed as goombario. That's a can of worms for later.)

And that ring system with the potental enemy count could be overwhelming to Mario by his lonesome....

A wait n' see me says.

Same, from what I've heard, Color Splash was a huge improvement. Might buy it for cheap if there weren't so many games to juggle.

@kkslider5552000 You should check out Bug Fables when it comes out on Switch in 2 weeks. It's pretty much an exact clone of the original 2 Paper Mario games.

@Cynas I've heard certain things that suggest Bug Fables doesn't really live up to Paper Mario's standards, so I'm not as immediately hyped for it as some people are. I'll see how things are when more people get into it (especially Nintendo fans).

Can't wait for the newest paper mario! love the series! Oh and you know that sticker star game a while back that everybody hated? I finally played it to see what all the fuss was about and i had a good time. Still don't get what the problem was but whatever. It probably is the weakest entry though. Anybody played paper jam? That one slipped by me but i think i may finally pick it up and have me a marathon!
