Paper Mario Just Got Super

Posted by Anthony Dickens

Nintendo unveil another game in the Paper Mario series, Super Paper Mario for Nintendo Gamecube.

Nintendo are set to release another Mario game and its not even another sports title, its another platformer! Looking quite similar to New Super Mario Bros. on the DS, Super Paper Mario is a 2D platformer with 3D graphics.

The newest chapter of the Paper Mario story isn’t just out of this world … it’s out of this dimension.

What at first glance appears to be a 2-D sidescroller ripped straight from the pages of the Paper Mario universe soon turns into a 3-D action-adventure that defies all video game logic. Fusing 2-D and 3-D perspectives, not to mention RPG and platformer elements, the game slips back and forth between dimensions. The action sprawls across eight worlds filled with traps, puzzles, bizarre mysteries and items that often draw themselves out of thin air.

Oh, and just because Mario’s in the title doesn’t mean he’s the only star – players also get to play as Peach and Bowser.

Excellent news for all the classic Mario gamers out there, keep them coming Nintendo!

While its great Nintendo are doing this, I feel they should have just waited and had it as a Wii launch title
