Before today, if you'd have asked us which games we'd like Nintendo to reveal next year for Nintendo Switch, we doubt any of us would have come up with 'Paper Ice Climbers'. Now, though, that is the only game we want to see, and we absolutely need it right now.
This sudden but very pressing dream has materialised thanks to the video in the tweet below. The clip shows a snow scene video game concept, with the protagonist seemingly taking an awful lot of inspiration from Nintendo's very own Popo of Ice Climber fame.
We urge you to watch the entire 1:38 clip; some of the paper-based animations (which involve rolling around and turning into a paper aeroplane) are absolutely fantastic, and look like they could easily have come straight from the minds of Nintendo's very own development team.
The clip comes from @ScrapPaperDev on Twitter, a somewhat mysterious account which has been documenting the development of a game called Scrap Story. The account regularly posts small clips of footage or behind-the-scenes info to its followers, updating them on the progress of this upcoming RPG, but very little is actually known about the game officially.
Even the video description for this teaser trailer (which is now slightly outdated) simply states, "That's it. Did you really think a teaser would give more info than that?"
This could definitely be one to keep an eye on in the next few months but, until then, let us know your thoughts on the Ice Climber-style footage up above. Would you like to see Nintendo make a Paper Ice Climbers? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
Can I have a game that's just BotW but all snow areas? They were so relaxing to explore, and felt nice and cold.
Never played Ice Climbers much but I wouldn't mind a new Paper Mario (or Luigi or Peach or Bowser) game on the Switch.
Wow, that game looks great, hope it comes to switch when completed.
Nice . Obviously borrows heavily, but looks very well crafted.
This looks promising, but let's hope it's nothing like Ice Climber. Ice Climber is not a good game.
Very beautiful indeed.
I'd love a new game even if it was just made with the smash engine and graphics. The original is held back by such awful controls.
Been wanting a Paper Zelda game. Got Yoshi instead. Almost there!
it's an ok game but I like the character in smash
Well that is just very cool.
I enjoy Ice Climbers, but it's likely nostalgia mixed with the fact that I've always had someone to play it with.
But I'm not very interested in a reboot. It's a product of its' time. Scrap Story does look awesome, though!
@TheDanslator Ice Climbers isn't a good game. It's a great game.
Ooooh, I will keep my eye on this one, looks very fun!
The game is called Ice Climber. The characters in Smash are the Ice Climbers. Why do people always mix this up?
I mean, there are worse games, but Ice Climber would clearly not be this well known if not for Smash Bros. It's otherwise a perfectly forgettable 80s platformer.
I certainly wouldn't mind a reinvention of Ice Climber myself. I am unsure how well it would see though, unless Nintendo finds a way to make it appeal to everyone. (Like they usually do.)
I always think Nintendo should revisit their own history and revitalise characters like the Ice Climbers and Balloon Fight guy for new games. Heck, they did it with Pit in Kid Icarus!
@BlakeMorris Aonuma: Guys... I've got it!
