There is a strong history of fake Peaches in the Mario series, so that being a fake Peach seems likely. I'm holding out hope that she'll be playable like in the classic games, but I guess we'll see when it launches.

@Snaplocket I'll be honest, I've never heard anyone rank Paper Jam over Dream Team before you. Occasionally over Partners in Time, but not Dream Team.

@link3710 I wouldn't get my hopes up, Odyssey pretty much crushed ANY chance that Peach would ever be anything more then a one-note joke in the main series and I doubt Zelda will be treated any better.

@Snaplocket Uh... No idea what that's about. But anyways, this isn't the main series. This is Paper Mario, and 3/5 games have had Peach in a major role.

@link3710 Those 3 games were, conveniently, the first three titles, and she was still a damsel in distress in two of them.

It kinda just says something that people have to look super hard to see if this RPG will actually have normal attacks that aren't consumable and party members that aren't exactly the same appearance-wise as a normal enemy. Both in terms of the direction of this series and the early marketing for this game.

For any disappointment I have, I don't think anything made me as mad about the direction of this series than when Nintendo kept pretending this RPG series that still uses turn based RPG battles like every other Mario RPG wasn't an RPG. As someone who agrees with Nintendo that Metroid Prime (well mainly the first 2 games) isn't a first person shooter, this is way too much of a stretch, if not an outright lie to excuse poor game design decisions.

Things like this go beyond me just being disappointed, and are more just stupid decisions that no one actually likes. Like even if you adore the new Paper Mario games, you can't tell me "yes this is an action adventure game and it would be worse with more named characters with unique appearances".

I was pleasantly surprised with this news drop yesterday. I'm relatively new to the series, but I have enjoyed the two games I've played. I'm cautiously optimistic about this title, but I need to see more first.

I found Super Paper Mario to be really enjoyable. The platforming elements seemed a bit odd at times, but the worlds, writing, humor, and music of this title made up for any awkwardness IMO. Who knew that Peach would have to deal with a dating sim setup? XD

I really don't get the hate for Color Splash though. Sure, it's a flawed game, the battle system being my main problem as that's the first time I've had an incentive to flee from combat to conserve resources. But there were some genuinely funny moments, the levels were fun to explore to find each and every paint spot, and I really do like the self-aware "Hey, we're paper!" humor. Things were a pretty fun, albeit OP mechanic as well.

My rankings of Paper Mario would be:

1. Paper Mario Color Splash
1. Paper Mario TTYD
3. Super Paper Mario
4. Paper Mario
5. Paper Mario Sticker Star (right at the bottom)

I feel that the writing and aethestic of Color Splash was absolutely fantastic. I also liked the combat system but preferred TTYD's. The only things I didn't like in Color Splash were the Roshambo Temples and the Shy Bandit.

Would've been nice for it to have had a second life on the Switch like many other underrated Wii U games like Tropical Freeze, TMS and Wonderful 101 had the chance though the existence of Origami King suggests this won't happen.

@Snaplocket Right. I'm not saying she doesn't play a Damsel in Distress here either. I just want her to have a story about it.

Those two things pretty much ruined the whole game for me.

The trailer left me "cautiously optimistic" like a bunch of other people. I'm intrigued by the story shown so far. The deleted chinese clip hints at temporary partners alongside Olivia.

Unless they bring back move cards and the Color Splash map system, I'll be pretty happy.

I skipped the Roshambo Temples. As for the Shy Bandit, I also found him to be a major annoyance. That took second saddle to my complaints about the combat system though.

That's not to say I didn't like the game. But if the combat system had been set up very differently and if something trying to undo your progress wasn't a thing, I would've enjoyed it a lot more.

I am SUPER hyped for this game. It has that same grand, epic scale of older entries. In fact, far more epic and grand than any game in the series. That trailer was incredible.

The story premise seems intriguing and more serious (relatively, it’s still a Paper Mario game after all), the characters are oozing charm and personality (already love Bob-omb, he emotes his mellow, chill attitude so well), the audience from Thousand Year Door is back (yay!) traditional non-resource-based attacks make a return (no more stickers or cards), and frankly, the game just looks downright amazing.

I hope the partners join in battle (seems they might), but even if they don’t, just based off face value alone this looks to be the best Paper Mario game in a decade.

Love the weighty feel of Mario stomping on enemy heads, and the sound of the coin you get.. Pop-clink! Pop-clink! Pop-clink! Nintendo is so good at making games with a focus on celebratory audio-visual feedback.

@JaxonH next to trials of mana, this is my most hyped game so far in 2020. So much so that I've already started stock piling paper Mario and mario+Luigi titles. Earlier today i bought dream team. I assume it's more or less its similar game play. Next is super paper Mario unless i find color splash on the cheap.

@NintendoByNature I highly recommend Super Paper Mario; I picked it up used from GameStop and played it over the holidays in 2018. It does a few things differently from the first two titles (from what I've read), particularly with the platforming elements, but the story, characters, and music are pretty decent.

Color Splash is fairly decent and worth playing for the writing at least, but I wouldn't get it at full price. As mentioned previously, there are a few flaws to the game.

I can't speak for the other titles. TTYD is out of my reach right now, I'm avoiding Sticker Star, and I'd like to pick up the original game on the Wii U VC in the future.

@NintendoByNature
Ha! Me too. At least, I started playing Thousand Year Door and Super Paper Mario on the Win 2 handheld. May even throw Color Splash in at some point.

Mario & Luigi titles have a different flavor. Still good but... different. I liked Dream Team. I own the rest (Paper Jam, Superstar Saga and Bowser's Inside Story) but havent played them.

I have yet to play a Mario & Luigi title. I own both the Superstar Saga and Bowser's Inside Story remakes on the 3DS but have yet to dive into either of them. I also want to try Partners In Time. Not sure if I should bother with Dream Team or Paper Jam though.

@Tyranexx yea I heard good things about super. Color splash looks beautiful and it's kind of confirmed its not coming to switch( which i was holding out for), so I figured i might as well give it a spin since I'm really enjoying the original atm..

I can get TTYD but cheapest ive seen is $60. And I'm not really willing to spend that much. Who knows, my mind may change lol

@NintendoByNature At this point I'm just excited for the return of a constant stream of Switch games releasing starting next week and this game (release date and announcement) is evidence that Nintendo isn't just relying on updates/DLC for the big 3 (Animal Crossing, Smash, Pokemon) for the summer.
