Mario's Super Sticker Collection

On the day of the annual Sticker Fest, Bowser decides to pull a prank and scatters six Royal Stickers across the land. To retrieve these mysterious, magical stickers, which are now stuck onto Bowser and his underlings, Mario sets off on an adventure with Kersti, a sticker fairy, visiting prairies, deserts, forests, snowy mountains and volcanoes around the world.


Stickers are blended into every aspect of game play. They become your arsenal of items and attacks in traditional Paper Mario action-battles and can even unfold the environment to reveal new areas and ways to progress through the game.

Collect stickers by peeling them off their environment, buying them in shops, or even making your own, and store them in your notebook for later use.

"Paper"-ize the world by flattening it out and then use your stickers to find secret areas and hidden items just about anywhere in the game.

The papercraft setting of the game is really emphasized in 3D, giving you the feeling of peering into and exploring a world comprised of shoebox dioramas.

A cast of colorful characters will keep players laughing at every turn.

Stuck on you

If there's one thing we can learn from its 3DS catalogue so far, it's that Nintendo is great at the safe sequel. Sure, there are out-there exceptions like Kid Icarus: Uprising, but by and large we've seen a whole lot of remakes or new entries in...

TTYD was my favourite, but one in 3D will be... I wanna say "epic", but that word was kinda overused this E3, so I'll say... good.



Zono15 said:

Hey looks like hes got a new Chain Chomp partner! I'm so excited to see who else will help him out on his new adventure..



Yellowkoopa said:

This Paper Mario looks like the one from N64 and Gamecube. If it is, I'm going to buy it. (I love Super Paper Mario as well). Edit: Meh,it looks okay.



Hokori said:

I really need to Play TTYD again a few years ago my GCN memory Card got Corrupt and all my files were erased. I was like half way through but ill defantly pick this up.



ExploderReviews said:

Oh yeah thousand year door was epic... and why does this say that its a platformer? Its mainly an rpg.



Pogocoop said:

I might just get this one! I've never had a RPG format paper mario. I Do however own super paper mario for the wii.



NapalmHornet said:

Yup this is a must buy for me. I have only owned Super Paper Mario, I also had TTYOD for a day until it broke (it was second hand anyways).



Shirma_Akayaku said:

i would be so cool if there was mutiplayer co-op mode. also being able to change main characters like in super paper mario.



Capt_N said:

Lookin' good! Can't wait,... Well, ok, yes I can. Gonna have to.

Edit: ^Oh! So, That's how you bold! Asterisks!



J-Forest-Esq said:

The thousand year door has got to be one of my all-time favourite games. Wasn't so keen on the Wii version but it was still good. Hopefully this will lean more towards TTYD in terms of locations and characters (and art style come to think of it).



X-145 said:

This looks cool. I did like the feature in Super Paper Mario where you swich in between 2d & 3d. They'll probably do it automatically now.
This is still a must get for me!



StarDust4Ever said:

I see they have reintroduced the classic battle system. And presumably, one of Mario's partners is a Chain Chomp



xPOTATOx said:

Oh my god! I already have a million must buys for the 3DS... better start saving my money!



Shirma_Akayaku said:

Does anyone remember Toadette in TTDY? she was always there to help but but at the last tutoiral she left him. i hope she comes back in the paper mario 3ds as a partner.



Yoshidude said:

Paper Mario 3ds will definitely be my first game for the 3ds! I'M SO EXCITED! The bad news is that I have school. It will take forever for the 3ds to come out!



some_guy said:

Me too. I've got boarding school, but I still don't care. Nothing can stop me from getting this game. Nothing. It looks SO awesome.



Geno93 said:

This Game Will Be Awesome And I Can Tell Already Is Going To Be Better Than Super Paper Mario (Wii) With The Stage Battles Back And Its Gone Back To The 3D Aspects Instead Of 2D And Flipping Between Dimensions Unlike Super Paper Mario. However I Feel That It Won't Be Better Than Paper Mario TTYD As That Game Is Just Brilliant!



Dr_Salvador said:

@20.Jango.Forest - I couldn't have said it better myself!
I'm really looking forward to this game! But even more after seeing these pics!
Looks like your allies in this game is Mario's former enemies... Interesting!
Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is a sublime game, and I'm so happy that finally there will be a direct sequel, at least in terms of gameplay!



jayjay99 said:

coool!! ,but they need to make a baby mario 3d game that'll be good ...if they go through baby bowser and the legend of mario : D! dont forget about baby peach and all the other characters!



Lumi said:

I've been waiting for a new Paper Mario game for ages. Can't wait!



Yoshidude said:

This game looks so good, and it is soo creative. I mean stickers, who would have though of that? I have a feeling this is going to be like the best game in the world. I can't wait for Holiday 2011 for Mario Kart and Super Mario. I am so hyped right now.



meizme said:

Had this on preorder but canceled it, the Wii version super paper Mario was the best game of the series and the switching for 2d to 3d was a fantastic concept. WTF is wrong with the devs at ninty? you have a console that goes from 2d to 3d FOR REAL and you drop that design for the long drawn out, boring style of the gamecube and 64 releases. FOR SHAME!!!! FOR SHAME!!!!
edited to add another FOR SHAME!!!!



Nintonic said:

Does anyone know if there is a release date for this?

Also I want to get this but I'm dissapointed by the fact that there is no flower points or even an audience. Well maybe there is something like flower points in this game. But no audience is completely true. But this still is a must buy. But one of my later must buys. Animal Crossing, Mario Kart, Luigi's Mansion 2, Paper Mario. Depending on which comes out first, it's a shame that Luigi's Mansion 2 is coming out 2012 because I heard the play control is really addicting. I'm curious how it is possible to control luigi and the vacuum and the same time.



Paperguy13 said:

@49 O_O wat r u talking about??!! have u even played those paper mario games?! theyre waaay better then the wii version. the old ones actually rpg's. the wii version was.. a side scroller? but watever, its ur opinion, all im saying is that i think the old paper mario formulas, r better than the one for wii. why do they make u go through all those pointless doors, its frustrating!



mariopaperthin said:

your rite the new paper mario was terrible i like the role play better but i
wonder will they still have the stars that u will have to save
to help defeat browser that was fun



blueboom said:

paper mario looks better with the graphics even better than paper mario and the thousand year door and i think one of the partners will be toad because i saw it in a video of paper mario 3ds also it looks a bit harder from the original thosand year door with the gusty wind



SuperLink said:

Can't wait. Paper Mario is my favorite series of all time. The dialogue is the most creative and witty I've ever seen in a video game. TTYD is the best in the series so far.



DigitalMonkey said:

Love Paper Mario 1000 year door! Not happy though that I can't play this on my new DSI XL. Can't they make a 2d version for those of us that can't afford the new 3DS. My dads iPad has cool games like Infinity Blade that only cost $3.00. Cmon Nintendo...



EagleLion said:

I NEED THIS GAME!!!!! I want another lakitu partner. In the original paper mario, Lakilester was my favorite partner. I just think that the lakitu should have a different out of battle ability.



Curt said:

When will we hear about this game some more? Can we expect something once SM3DL and MK7 are out?



StephenYap3 said:

I loved Paper Mario for the N64, which is the title I enjoyed the most out of the three PMs in the series and any other Mario RPG, but seeing how this is majorly different than the first two, I hope it turns out to be worthy in the end. Also, I freaking love Paper Mario.



Nintonic said:

I think this is a later 2012 come out because we've gotten no news about it. It better come in 2012, and I hope that there is a audience at the bottom because in TTYD I've always tried to make my audience excited. In this game they should have an audience mood meter so you can interact with them, and you can use items on them to either make them happy or angry. Making them angry should be a disavantage to mario but also a disavatage to the enemy, they should have a star power meter too. I also hope that you don't have to buy hammers and jumps beacause that would certainly be annoying.

Edit: Actualy, I think buying hammers and jumps are a good idea. As long as they are cheap you should be able to use more than one jump on an enemy for a multi-jump, and for the hamer you can use more than one of those too. I hope they bring back badges but I'm not mostly concerned about it yet I am at the same time. If they don't add badges I expect there to be alot of items.



Yoshidude said:

@49: You've got a point. I've gotten so much into Super Paper Mario lately. I have my computer background for Super Paper Mario set up because I love the game so much.



Jfilesguy said:

Paper Mario is my number 1 RPG of all time.
Paper Mario: tTYD is my most played Gamecube game
Super Paper Mario was the game that made me love my Wii, and helped me become a gamer in the first place.

Yes, give me that Paper!



PaperDude16 said:

i've done a lot of research on this game, and i found out that u only get three partners: a green toad, a chain-chomp, and if u played paper mario 64, u should know about your third partener: the ice kings floating crown that he wore when u fought him, except it sparkles, it has eyes, and its the same color of the crystal crystal star in ttyd. and im not sure, but i think the chain-chomps ability will be bark so it can scare enemies and other things. and for the recored, paper mario the thousand year door IS the best of them all. and i don't know about u, but i completly HATED that u had to switch from 2d to 3d every 5 minuets. and if u stayed in 3d for too long, u get hurt! and it does that until u beat the game. then u can stay in 3d however long u want

sorry, from 2d to 3d every 5 minuets in super paper mario wii. forgot to say which game i was talking about.

and i think the floating crown is phychic and it can move stuff around with its mind.

and, i have also found out the release date!!!!!!!!!! its due for release on march 25th.




blueboom said:

Thank u u know wat the final or finale boss looks like?? I also hope it wuld be an ironic back to back fight with super paper mario wii: DIMENTIO and this time the tricks are on him because there is a new villian that is unknown



PaperDude16 said:

sorry, but idk what that boss looks like. but i sure hope that what u said would happen!

just like in TTYD with Lord Grodus and bowser when bowser squashes him when he falls through the ceiling.(or floor, whatever u call it.)



StarDust4Ever said:

Wait a minute... Back in like June2011, GameStop game me a sheet of paper with a release date posted for January 2nd!?!?!?

Was it Paper Mario or Luigi's Mansion, I can't remembver?



Sparkyboy6 said:

This is going to be an amazing game! I am looking forward to it a lot, the ''stickers'' feature looks like it is going to be very interesting and fun, as you can use them in the battles, and when you are walking around.



CARPYMW3 said:

who cares if this is a remake or a sequel everyone likes mario and thats including me and i play 18s



peachy-zelda said:

@zeldadude this isn't a re-make (i don't think it is anyway) so, i think it will be a part 4. now, i don't really know what you mean by "i want an origanal" if you mean you want it to be a remake of an origanal then i don't think it is.



jimmyvspec said:

iv'e played the wii version but i think it would be better than the 64 one.
i'm really excited about the new game.
I hope you will be able to flip that was great.
chain chomp will one of the partners.



Lyndexer said:

Now I've been looking towards this game. It just sucks we haven't really got an more info of the game. I think they showed us a trailer and pictures.



Sherman said:

I want a ShyGuy as partner =3 Well, I don't care as long as there are partners. And 8 at least.



woodeee said:

this is a must get game i just got paper mario the thousand year door lovin it chapter 2 im glad paper mario sticker star has partners because super paper mario wii was cool i just hate you have to have pixls mostly you have to get realy far in the game to get a hammer pixle



lolololololol said:

i HAD the first paper mario and i bought it with wii points and soon after i was at chapter six,(my wii was old) it crashed! Sad... Anyways I HAD the second one. my dogs chewed it. And the third one? My dogs chewed it! So im happy another paper mario is coming out because its actually one that cant be crashed or chewed. so woo hoo!!!!



Onion said:

It'll be coming out in November 11th, so I plan to grab a copy as soon as it hits stores.

Judging by what I've seen, you only have one real partner, the rest of them function as one-time use partners used for solving a puzzle or whatnot. There's a world map in place of traveling by foot to each location, loads of stickers, etc. Doesn't appear to be any badges, as stickers seem to replace them. Leveling is done differently this time around, though I don't know the specifics other than that you don't get exp from battles anymore.



SammyOfMobius said:

Sometimes I do retail, sometimes I do digital. This game will be very good! They've been working on this game for about 3 years, so it should be worth playing! Someday everything will be digital. Hopefully no time soon, though!



SammyOfMobius said:

This game will not dissappoint 3Dash. Get this first. I've been waiting 3 long years for a new Mario RPG, and I finally got it. Well, in 8 days I will have it. In the mean time NSMB2 will hold me over.



NintenBo said:

I preordered it but canceled out of excitement LOL. I then bought 2 eShop cards so I can play it launch night.



Tohru said:

I haven't played the original Paper Mario but my friend has told me about it and it sounds really good so I bought the sequel. So far so good! I would recommend everyone to play Sticker Star!



LordFawful said:

Series went from saving the Mushroom Kingdom, to saving the world, to saving all existence... to saving the princess for the zillionth time from Bowser. (At least PM64 had unique characters, good plot, etc) God, Nintendo, you screwed up an otherwise-perfect series.



SpearGuy said:

@LordFawful: I thought paper mario sticker star was awesome! I'd give it a 9, because there's not enough room for stickers and not enough varieties of stickers. Everything else is great! And what do you mean by screwed up? They did a great job on this game, and if anything, enhanced the series.



TomJ said:

I know, this game had POTENTIAL for a good story line and all that other stuff.
I was rather disappointed by this game. A 6/10 for me



LordFawful said:

@SpearGuy: how did this game enhance the series? Story, personality, unique characters is what i loved about the paper mario series, and this game had none of that. yes, it had good graphics and was visually appealing, and the music was great, but the story... look at ttyd and spm before it. they had unique and epic stories, bowser had a funny personality, luigi was awesome, but in ss, both of them lost all their dialogue. this was basically nsmb with paper mario graphics. its not a bad game but it could have been soooo much better.
