Paper Mario: Sticker Star is days away in Europe and has been available in North America for a few weeks, and represents the first venture of the flat Mario onto a handheld. It's the fourth entry of a series over a decade old, meanwhile, games with enough RPG elements and dialogue to require a bit more development time than a traditional 2D platformer.

By Nintendo standards it's a relatively short history with few entries, but that doesn't mean that the new title isn't worth celebrating. As part of its tradition of producing rather attractive info-graphics to commemorate major releases, Nintendo of Europe has produced a rather colourful and appealing Paper Mario visual history. It covers all four entries, taking us from N64 to 3DS, and is worth a look for fans of the series.

Check it out in all of its glory below.
