With Paper Mario: The Origami King being revealed for Switch earlier this month, love for the series has once again started to unfold across all corners of the internet. Some take that passion further than others, and amazing videos like this are often the result.
YouTube user JorgeMV has shared a video showing the world and characters of Star Fox 64 in the style of Paper Mario, all wrapped up in a really neat animation. Software like Maya, C4D, After Effects, Illustrator and Photoshop were all used to make the video a reality, but more importantly, it's utterly charming.
"Star Fox 64 is my favorite game and I always liked the style of Paper Mario, so I thought about making a video that would combine both," JorgeMV says. "It took me a month and a half, but I finally had time to do it, it was a fun process and I learned a lot trying to improve the video day by day."
Star Fox isn't the only Nintendo franchise to be given the fan-made Paper Mario treatment in recent times. We've also seen equally delicious takes on both The Legend of Zelda and Ice Climber.
Would you play a game like this? Should we get Nintendo on the phone, demanding for a fresh, paper-based take on the Star Fox franchise? Share your thoughts with us below.

Now that it great, one of my favorite N64 games (even though us in the UK knew it as Lylatt Wars) mixed with Paper Mario.
Should of just been Paper Fox 64 in my opinion
Less than 300 views at the time of posting - let's hope this guy gets the recognition he deserves for this creation as it's sublime ^_^
Paper Mario Zero; that will do well.
This is superb
Star Fox A4.
You're all welcome.
"Where is the creator?"
"I'll do you one better - WHY is the creator?!"
What a great effort and makes me wish they had expanded the Paper series in to its own thing drawing from all of their franchises.
That's great I wish Nintendo would do something with Star Fox.
wow. wonderful. i want a new starfox
I like what they’ve done but I don’t know if I would prefer it over a full-fledged more realistic looking Star Fox. Honestly I’m more hyped about a new star fox (if and when) than I am a lot of other things, even if it’s just a port of the Wii U one with the option to remove those gyro aiming controls.
Oh well, here’s to hoping the IP stays alive in any way! It’s one of my favorite series.
Honestly I would but this in a heartbeat as I would a Paper Zelda game.
It looks awesome and this video was very well done.
Star Fox is the one genre Nintendo has to bring back to Switch with a proper well controlled game.
I'd love a massive adventure where many parts are Starfox 64 and then many also go Starfox Adventure's.
This would be so much fun if it was real, I bet Nintendo doesn’t do it.
Always wished that Nintendo would create a new Star Fox mixing 3rd person shooting and using the vehicles when necessary.
Sort of like GTA in terms of changing the vehicles constantly but in the Star Fox Universe.
I would take a star fox 64 remake over a new game based on the last entry. I hope they do something on switch.
This is amazing. Well done.
I've always been surprised Nintendo hasn't taken the Paper idea to other series.
[insert Star Fox Zero complaint here]
@FantasiaWHT While It's true that Nintendo hasn't taken the paper concept to other franchises, they have extensively used canvas, yarn, and papercraft in the Yoshi and Kirby series. And it's worked well in those cases!
This is absolutely amazing, by the way. Major credit to the creator of this!! It's one thing to demonstrate an idea, but it's another to have spot-on art direction and execution!
Coming from someone who's favourite game is Lylat Wars/StarFox 64, that was absolutely incredible. If that was real, I would day one buy it. Something like this is just what the series needs after the very poor StarFox Zero. I hope Nintendo are paying attention to this!
Want this and paper Zelda any day over another paper mario
That would be fun I like the video I just wish though that they would make another Star Fox adventure game I really enjoyed that growing up
Nice creation. Like many others in this thread I adore SF64 - it's one of my favourite N64 games. However to bring it back they need to seriously re-think the formula - traditional rail-shooters are very dated (but I think they could be made to work).
Nintendo really needs to get to work on these B-franchises - SF, F-Zero, etcetera.
"Star" is part of the brand name, so I disagree. He's just a fox if he isn't a galactic Starfox.
You're right, simply breaking off the rails wouldn't improve things, as Starlink has proven. The franchise needs a shakeup.
My problem with this series is that it keeps remaking Star Fox 64 (which is a retelling of Star Fox SNES). This series feels stuck in the past
Good effort, but for a Starfox game I don't see this art style working.
Star fox 64 was so good. The promo video from Nintendo Power (a vhs, with a video about 10 min) was campy, but so good:
I'm surprised Ninty didn't get in trouble for it, lol. I guess the (90's?) were different times
I can watch this for hours.
@Bunkerneath should have*
Just for future reference
Not bad, but the Zelda one was better.
