You may not know it – especially since Nintendo have apparently decided that anything releasing before Nintendo is not worth marketing this year – but Paper Mario Color Splash releases on the Wii U in just a couple of weeks. And to ensure that at least those who are following the game have some media on the game in the lead up to its release, Nintendo have gone ahead and quietly released two trailers for the game.
In both the trailers, the game comes off as surprisingly charming, reeking of the kind of delightful quality that was one of the things that made the series so beloved with so many players in the first place. One thing is for sure- the direction that the series has taken ever since the divisive 3DS entry Paper Mario Sticker Star may not appeal to everyone, but the games’ artstyle has gotten progressively better.
Paper Mario Color Splash launches on the Wii U exclusively on October 7.
