Paper Mario 3DS gameplay screenshots revealed
Paper Mario 3DS has been announced by Nintendo at E3 2010 for their miraculous new portable system that allows for 3D visuals without the need for 3D glasses.

If you’ve never played the original Paper Mario N64, you definitely need to check that game out, along with it’s sequels: Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door (GameCube) and Super Paper Mario (Wii). The RPG Mario titles with flat paper-like characters and worlds are not to be confused with the Mario & Luigi series which includes the original Game Boy Advance “Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga” and it’s sequels: Mario & Luigi: Partner’s in Time (DS) and Mario & Luigi: Bowser’s Inside Story (DS). Both series were spawned after the commerical and critical success of the original game that started it all, which you can read about in my Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars review (SNES).

  • Although there wasn’t much revealed about the new “Paper Mario 3DS” (tentative title), Nintendo did show a demo at E3 2010 in which several aspects of the game, how it will play, what it looks like and similarities/differences to previous games in the series have been gleaned:

    * This game will return the series to it’s traditional 2D gameplay through isometric/3D-environments from a semi-side-scrolling viewpoint, as seen in the first two games (but changed up for the Wii’s Super Paper Mario).
    * Partners who help you in combat will return.
    * The game does not appear to use the bottom screen, only the top, 3D screen (the bottom screen on the 3DS is NOT 3D but a 2D, touch-screen like the regular DS systems).
    * The game plays and looks similar to past titles, and isn’t necessarily fully 3D graphically, although certain visuals and effects will pop off the screen.
    * Battle information is displayed on the bottom, touchscreen.
    * Battles are turn-based.
    * Lots of classic Mario enemies and characters will be featured in the game, including: Goomba’s, Pokeys, Wiggler’s, Chomps, and Thwomps. You can be sure that many others will return.
    * One of your battle partners is a classic Chain Chomp enemy!
    * A lot of puzzles and other tricks will be done by playing with 3D effects.

    Hopefully we’ll get a video of the game in action soon.

      Freaking awesome that they are making another Paper game, I love that game.

      1. Paper Mario 1 was amazing
      2. Paper 2 was em not tooo goood.
      3. Super Paper Mario was amazing but not as amazing as part 1.

    • What’d you think of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door then Fahd?

    • Fahd

      Paper Mario 2 was OK,I kind of prefer the first one.

    • ZakZero24

      The Paper Mario for the Wii was a heretic to the Paper Mario Series. I absolutely loved the first 2. I absolutely can’t wait for this to come out. It looks like it’s going to be just as complex as the 1st. Although, I have to disagree with you guys and say Thousand Year Door had way better options for gameplay. Either way, Im definitely getting a 3DS. I can’t believe how awesome the game lineup is. Zelda OoT, Metal Gear Solid, and now THIS? I’m freaking sold.

      this is gonna be so cool i love the paper mario series but i was disapointed because of the non battle game play. but im so excited that they return to the awsome battle game i play all the time. i play thousand year old door 10 times and still playing it today. the first one was pretty good. the last one the screwed the pooch on the took away the paper mario style. so congratulations nentendo you got alot of old mario fans and even new ones. congratulations.

      Hey guys did you know paper mario 3ds is coming out in the summer of 2011. Thats a few months after the 3ds’ realease. My other games in mind are animal crossing and mario kart. What do you guys think?

    • cdgallahue

      What do you think the chances are that this will use the 3DS’s gyroscope and accelerometer for motion-controlled action commands? I just hope they do something new w/ the story for this game. From the pictures and the ONLY gameplay video I’ve seen (it’s somewhere on youtube, don’t remember exactly what it’s called), it looks like this is going to be a lot of exploring, but I saw NO interaction AT ALL with NPC’s, which makes me worried that this game is going to shift away from the storyline focus of the Paper Mario series. Still looks fun though, and almost definitely going to buy it.
