I hope there are loads of new levels, seeing world 1-1 and 1-2 again makes me cry.

Lovely, cannot wait, it looks full of classic Nintendo charm and looks like it will play as well as the classic Mario platformers of the past with a few welcome twists here and there.

Hope it comes here soon after, I m actually glad it has come to the Wii and in turn a eventual larger audience.LS ( DK Bongo Blast also )

Looks brilliant. The first great Wii game! ^_^

Dude yuor totally awesome. And i won't be killing you anytime soon.

I still haven't had any chance to pick up the first Paper Mario... And I didn't pick the second one either.

This makes me want these games badly Smilie. But Super Paper Mario probably won't touch my hands, since I do not own the Wii.

Which of the two Paper Mario is the best?

According to IGN it's still unconfirmed as to whether it will utilise the Wiimote, and Famistu don't drop any hints.

Anyways looks great, it has been referred to on NeoGAF as the second coming of Jesus Smilie Sooo true.

Well, I have only played the intro of Paper Mario on the N64, but I nearly finished Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door and I think it is a really great game, full of humour. It has some superb locations too, like the forest with the punies and twilight town. In fact, it is one of my favourite games on the GC. You need to play that one at least.

This looks like a fantastic game. But it's not going to be an RPG like the other ones, is it? I personally loved the RPG feel to those Mario games (Paper Mario's and the Mario and Luigi hand held games), I hope losing that element won't alter the whole games feel so much. As long as its as charming and funny as the other ones, I guess it's ok.

Is there a solid UK release date yet?

awsome cant wait for tis game.. it looks so fun to lpay! Smilie

I see all these people insulting the Nintendo corporation because of the lack of mature content. Yet there is something about Nintendo (at least their games) that strikes a certain unadulterated feeling of joy!!!  Pokemon Y - 1048-9263-5562

Well Bart, you convinced me, next time I see it I'll buy it if it costs less than 30

Looks great so far, a deffinate must have. I just hope they still come out with a regular Paper Mario, or at least another Mario RPG game, I love those crazy RPGs.

I preferred the original PM to the second. I think they over did the dialogue.

It's going to be shit and you jolly well know it.

Paper Mario was fun, but only for short amounts of time, and only then because the battle system was almost as good as Superstar Saga's. Thank God this isn't an RPG >_>

Apparently the Butterfly in the game has vanished by all accounts Smilie, shame i am a sucker for such novel pointers systems. LS

What relevance does that picture have? And more importantly, WHERE THE HELL DID YOU GET THAT!?!? O.o

I....I.....

GIVE ME IT YOU FUCKING BITCH.

Language, you immature little person.

I want this game very much indeed, although I would prefer an RPG to a platformer. Mario's new skill looks like the turning onto the road to innovation in the 2D platformer genre.


Screwing the rules since 1989.

looks good

You did not read Nintendo Power right? Or are you from the UK?

It dose use the Wiimote. You hold it sideways and there is accleration and pointer function programmed into the game.

Oh you're from America...that explains a lot.

"Language, you immature little person."

Swearing is immature? Fuck, I better stop. oops...

Anyway, this game is looking great Smilie

The hell...you deleted your post and reposted it?

And I also don't understand your post....

Looks like its set to continue Paper Mario's own unique style.

Can't wait to get it!
