Not all long-term fans are necessarily delighted at the prominence of Toad characters in Paper Mario: Color Splash, yet the little Fungi could nevertheless be entertaining companions. We'll see in good time, but Nintendo's certainly keen to put the cast of coloured Toads front and centre in early marketing ahead of the 7th October release.

Last week Nintendo released episode one of the quirky 'Rescue V' video series, which goes for a jokey and retro approach. Episode two is now out, with poor Purple Toad struggling to get credit for his team's work.

It's cute advertising in any case. Are you a fan of these videos?
