Did you like Paper Mario Sticker Star? If you are one of the five people who did, the good news is that there is a brand new Paper Mario game out, and it is basically a Paper Mario Sticker Star 2. Paper Mario Color Splash is a new game in the long running, beloved series, and it continues on from Sticker Star, basically stripping out all the RPG elements, and making the game more… action adventure-y.
It’s a crying shame.
On the other hand, the game at least looks pretty, with the artstyle translating extremely well to HD. But I can’t bring myself to be excited for it- when people were asking for a new Paper Mario game, this is not at all what they had in mind.
I guess it’s time for everyone to accept that Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door was just a one off. We are never getting something like that ever again. Paper Mario Color Splash launches exclusively on Wii U later this year.
