@FishyS TotK does not seem like an RPG to me, that is odd. With Origami King it is missing some key traditional RPG elements, but a case can be made for it to be an RPG either way.

Yeah, Zelda has always had one of those 'does it count as an RPG' arguments, especially newer zeldas. It has a story, npcs, side quests, a permanent leveling system (e.g. stamina and hearts). Fundamentally RPG is a broad term, even traditional since the old RPGs came in multiple very different flavors.

@FishyS Yeah it’s got some key elements, but I never really think of it as an RPG for some reason? Maybe it’s because of the battle engine? I know some RPGs don’t approach battles the same, but from the RPGs I play, they usually have some turn-based combat styled battle along with the other RPG elements.

Funnily enough, I always thought of The Origami King as being kind of a Zeldalike, barring the turn-based battles. It has a very similar brand of exploration and progression, especially during the blatantly Wind Waker-inspired fourth chapter.

ALRIGHT A NEW MARIO & LUIGI

Admittedly, I still have my reservations, but it does look pretty promising.

It's fun having the whole set! Even though it is kind of crazy all 3 are coming out in a 1 year period. Hopefully the new game will be good.

I'm at the Shangri-spa in Origami King now and the game is so good. I haven't played it since I finished it near release, and it's a bit sad to know a lot of people seem to have skipped it just because it didn't have "proper" turn-based battles, when in my experience everything about this is so much more fun.

Varied locations and gameplay, writing, humour and art is all peak. While I haven't played any Paper Mario between this and TTYD, I'm inclined to see if I can track down Sticker Star at least to see what it does differently. Having listened to "fans" of the series throughout the years saying these games weren't "proper" Paper Mario games was probably a mistake for me.

There are so many Mario RPGs recently! SMRPG and TTYD Remakes brought back some of the best Mario RPGs, Superstar Saga and PM64 being on NSO (expansion pack) is very nice, and upcoming M&L Brothership is so exciting! So many unique characters in Brothership, can’t wait to hear more about it!

@PikminMarioKirby
I would like new Mario RPG games have new outfits for Mario and other playable characters, kinda like Job system in Final Fantasy.
Their outfits not just only for fancy purpose, but they have different abilities and stats.
