E3 2010: Paper Mario for 3DS

Posted by James Newton

Play the flat one in glorious 3D

The last title in the Paper Mario series was Wii's Super Paper Mario some years ago, and fans have been clamouring for another entry ever since. Well, those same fans are about to be made very happy as Paper Mario is confirmed for 3DS with these first screenshots.

Although the flat graphical style may not spring immediately to mind when you think of games that would benefit from 3D, the extra depth in the composition of scenes could give the game a pop-up book style.

Check out the gallery below and keep coming back as we'll be keeping you updated on more upcoming 3DS titles through the night.

does anyone else think that the 3DS has one of the single greatest initial line-ups in history?

Super paper mario was actually my favourite but the other two were great games too and this also looks like it will be a great game.

w00t!! Paper Mario!!

Wait...is this the "new Mario game" Martinet was talking about in that tweet? I sure hope not, 'cause I'm still holding out for a Yoshi's Island 3DS...

Hmm...they announced quite a few Mario games there, actually. Paper Mario, Mario Kart, Mario Sports Mix...they could add one more to the list. Perhaps it will be announced at a smaller, more exclusive event together with Pikmin 3?

Too bad my time machine isn't finished yet. Paper Mario is my favorite game. EVER. PERIOD. That's probably only because it's the first RPG I ever played, but whatever. It's still awesome. And even though Super Paper Mario was great, I'm elated to see that this is an RPG. I have officially bought my boarding ticket for the 3DS's bandwagon.

This is great. I LOVED Super Paper Mario. I guess I'll have to buy a 3DS now there is enough games to make a purchase.

@odd69: Actually, this is based on the classic battle system play mechanic. Super Paper Mario ditched the turn-based battle system in favor of old-school platforming action. So it is more of a hybrid RPG/platformer. While it played brilliantly, there are still fans who hanker for another installment using classic RPG elements. I think the pop-up 3D comic book effect will be awesome ;)

A pop-up book effect would be awesome.
Nintendo have hit the absolute precise center of the bulls eye this E3.

I can imagine this looking great on the 3ds. A handheld Paper Mario seems logical. I only got the first PM recently on vc, so I might have to quickly finish that and the sequel.

This is... I can't even think of a word that means how awesome this is.
Even Supercalafragilisticexpialadocious doesn't quite cover it.

Well, that almost does. Just not quite. Add "andchucknorrisandzuesareawesome" and you've about got it.

Actually I think Mario Sports Mix was the game Martinet was talking about.
As for Paper Mario, I'd love a cameo of the Pixls as well as his own partners.
I love the Pixls! Anything computery is win in my book.
