Paper Mario, Fire Emblem and Rayman Legends Get New Trailers

Posted by Shaan Joshi

Now with 100% more Lums, goats, and arrows!

Yesterday, Nintendo of America broadcasted a new Nintendo Direct, which focused specifically on upcoming 3DS titles and software.

We already posted the brand new trailer to the newly-named Animal Crossing: New Leaf, but Nintendo also released fresh trailers for Paper Mario: Sticker Star, Fire Emblem: Awakening, while Ubisoft has its own trailer for their upcoming Wii U exclusive, Rayman Legends.

This new trailer for Paper Mario: Sticker Star shows off a nice mix of cutscenes and gameplay, including a variety of new enemies and items. One of the more standout attacks is Mario's 'goat' sticker, which summons a gigantic goat into battle, which proceeds to 'nom nom nom' all the enemies on screen. No, we're not joking. Just check it out for yourself.

Sweeping orchestral pieces and epic battles round out the new Fire Emblem: Awakening trailer, and that's just the way we like it. The video also showcases the game's gorgeous visuals, which invoke a hand-drawn feeling despite being rendered in 3D.

Switching over to the Wii U, this new trailer for Rayman Legends shows off some frantic 5-person multiplayer. For those who need a refresher, Rayman Legends allows up to 5 people to play at once, with four players on regular Wiimotes or Wii U Pro Controllers, while 1 lone player uses the Wii U Gamepad to control Murphy.

Which game are you most excited for?

It's such as shame that Rayman Legends isn't ready for the Wii U launch...

The amount of people surprised by the goat attack, despite it featuring prominently in the last nintendo europe Nintendo Direct Paper Mario trailer, several weeks ago, is surprising.

@Linkstrikesback While this is true, a lot of us North Americans don't always watch the European Nintendo Directs, especially when things like European release dates don't matter to us.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star keeps looking good, as expected. The goat attack looks humorously cool and the giant Cheep-Cheep jumping over Mario's boat will probably make a great 3D moment.

Paper Mario Sticker Star looks really good, and it's easy to imagine that it would look even better in actual 3D based on the somewhat off-kilter of all the actual gameplay battles. And the Goombas rolling up into pointy top cones is pure genius. I might have to borrow 1 of my kids 3DS to play it, and it's the first 3DS game I feel the need to do that. Anybody know if they'll cut back (pun intended) on all the reading to stat off the game, that was the most annoying aspect of the last Paper Mario game on the Wii.

Did anyone notice that about 1:08 in the Fire Emblem Awakening trailer the music that started playing sounds a lot like the Dragon Quest theme Square Enix has been using like it's going out of style?
@Shining-Void Not unless you want to know about important plot details.

To me, this Rayman trailer is designed to lay to rest concerns that the tablet would change the gameplay too much from Origins.

@SkywardLink98 Unfortunately, yes they are.
@Void That music has been part of the Fire emblem series for a long time, I wouldn't know how long though as I'm not a fan of the series but I remember hearing that music in both SSBM and SSBB.
Paper Mario: Sticker star does look like a great game but the story doesn't sound like it will be anywhere near as good as the previous two games in the series.
With how far they've got with the translating and voice acting in Fire emblem: Awakening, I'm surprised its not out in Q1 rather than Q2.

Paper Mario Sticker Star's trailer got me much more interested in the game than I already was. Before that trailer, I was considering not getting it. Now I want to get it on Day 1! :D

While I am still buying Sticker Star for the story and experience, I was disappointed with the disposable item based combat (Partners in Time's combat system was horrible), luck based slot spinning, and extremely simplified, possibly nonexistent RPG elements when was announced, and am still now. In addition, from my experience, the only way to make a luck based and disposable item system work is to make the difficulty very easy.

@HarmoKnight Well, I've played all of the FE games that came to the west besides Shadow Dragon, and I haven't heard that song in them before, it would make sense if it was only heard in the games that take place with Marth, since Awakening is supposed to take place on the same continents in the distant future.

Sticker star looks like if paper mario and wario ware had a baby. The goat.....awesome.

I can not wait for fire emblem; each trailer is torture to me. I want it now, it looks so perdy.

The thing I am looking forward to the most in rayman legends is not the 5 player; it's the musical stages. They are really cool.
