Super Paper Mario only for Wii

Super Paper Mario only for Wii

A new Mario game has been in development called Super Paper Mario. Originally lined up for the Gamecube, the game was delayed and took on a mysterious silence. Word is out that the game is now headed for the Wii instead.

The developers of the game are Intelligent Systems, the team known for classics like Fire Emblem, Advance Wars and Metroid Fusion so it's sure to be a winner.

You know, I wonder if this isn't one of the VC console titles in development. I mean it isn't RPG like as Paper Mario usually is and the action elements would make it ideal for the retro like VC.

I thought this was only for the Gamecube.

Maybe when you transform into paper airplanes and everything you have to do certain motions with your controller! That would be so awesome.

Well, I thought it was a bad move to release on the Cube on their part, but good for us. So I can't blame them TOO much.

Doubt it. They aren't giving up on the Gamecube just yet.

Awesome, another Mario related game for the Wii! That makes 6 now, or 7 if Luigi's Mansion comes out.

At least it's not going to end up like Super Mario 64 did. The poor game didn't get the attention it deserved when the gamecube came out.

Awesome a Mario spinoff title that isn't a sports game! I don't own any Paper Mario games but I played it at a friend's house and couldn't stop. I am so getting this one. Do you think Bowser will be awesome to play as? Because I think he will be.

This game looks great because Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Old Door was a great game. Usally it is hard to find a good challenging game, this was the perfect gaming experience.

They haven't given up on Gamecube yet? It's practically dead! What was the last good game we got? The lack of effort Nintendo has put into the Gamecube in the last year is appalling.

I've got to agree, lately the cube has had fantastic titles like Lego Star Wars. I think Nintendo has given up and is putting all effort into the Wii.

I can't imagine there being any use for the Wiimote here.

Paper Mario is my favorite RPG game, so I was kind of disappointed when I heard they took out that battling system. But either way I'm getting this game!

Just another Super Mario Bros. Without Luigi. Unless they do something different that we don't expect.

You have to be kidding me, Paper Mario is my favorite game of all time. It's not even an RPG any more. This is the worst day of my life.

I used to own Paper Mario, then I sold it because I couldnt figure out how to pass the giant tree level.

Don't feel too bad bman. There are supposed to be some rpg elements implemented in the game. And this only a spin-off. Nintendo still plans on releasing more paper mario games in the original fashion.

This is set to come out April 9th, 2007. You know I'll be the first person (other than Nintendo's debug team) to beat it.

Holy crap, this game is awesome. The story is great, the gameplay is very comfortable, and the quick menu is greatly appreciated. I hate games where you have to take more time going to the start menu and switching equipment and characters than actually playing. Buy this game if you like side-scrollers and RPGs.

If anyone doesn't already know, the wiimote is used to switch from 3d to 2d and back again.

A wonderful mix of platformer and RPG. Great story line, interesting puzzles, and (despite what PS3 fanboys say) good graphics.

For a very short time you can play as Luigi.

I have played every single paper mario game there is. I was sort of hoping there was going to be a paper luigi too.

How do you get past level 8-2 after you fall down the hole after hitting the blue switch.

Does anyone know the location for megabite and gigabite in the game? I am having a hard time finding them and they are the last 2 cards I need.
