Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Time to save the princess…Again!

The latest Nintendo Power just unravelled some juicy new info on the story of the upcoming Paper Mario game for the 3DS.  Apparently, the plot revolves around a Sticker Comet that can make wishes come true.  The game begins during the Sticker Fest, where the citizens of Mushroom Kingdom come to witness said Sticker Comet.  Of course, Bowser appears to crash the party and claim the comet for himself, breaking it into many small pieces in the process.  A crown that makes Bowser more powerful just happens to fall on his head, leading to him to doing what Bowser does best: kidnapping Princess Peach.  It’s then up to the papery persona of everybody’s favourite Italian plumber to get them all out of this sticky situation.

This time around he won’t be adventuring across towns like the previous Paper Mario titles however.  The levels will be arranged as stages in various worlds, much akin to traditional Mario platformers, ending with Mario gaining a comet piece.

Can’t help but miss Rogueport though…

Paper Mario: Sticker Star is set to release on the 11th of November this year, so make sure to write that date down in your sticker book.

    The Paper Mario games are my favorite Mario titles, and that’s saying something since I’m such a huge Mario player.  They are works of art as well as works of entertainment.  They also make a great intro to other RPGs for more casual gamers, have had a couple fiends be willing to try a more traditional RPG after playing a Paper Mario game.  I’m itching for the release of this.  

  • Oh jeez, I hope this doesn’t turn out to be an RPG version of New Super Mario Bros.

    •  If that’s your fear, then they already did that with the first Paper Mario, with the whole save-the-princess-again premise. But that’s fine, if they’re gonna introduce some new story elements into it. Though what I heard so far, it sounds like a reskin of a part of Galaxy’s plot. I’d still play it though.

    The level select thing sounds neat! I hope there’s some references to Super Paper Mario, that is still my favorite in the series. Unpopular opinion, I know. 😛
