The game does look good but I'm not planning to buy it at the moment, Fisher. I still have Super Paper Mario (Wii) and Paper Mario Sticker Star (3DS) to try out so I might give one of those a go :-).

No you won't

Super Papes on the Wii gets equally divisive views, too!

SPM is genuinely divisive. I really liked it! It wasn't perfect by a long shot, but it did some very clever stuff and playing as the four heroes was a lot of fun. Some good characters too.

Sticker Star, as other people have said, is just poor.

Mate can you change your sig, the deer's strawberry floating huge

Jesus Christ how the heck did that happen. :lol: I'll fix.

EDIT: Fixed. Not sure where the problem is on that, the deer's been chilling happily for ages and seemingly blew up overnight.

Paper Mario N64 is now complete :toot:

Annoyed I waited so long to play it, except a couple of small moments, it’s amazing!

Word is previews of this drop next week (25th) so we might see more videos/screens and get more details on any changes in this remake.

It's more of a remaster isn't it? So I'm not expecting any big changes.

But seriously, I'd be surprised if there's anything substantial beyond the new lick of paint for the graphics and QOL improvements.

Still expecting an easier mode, or the last boss to be made slightly easier, been ages since I've beaten this or watched the boss on YouTube, but recall it could hit really hard, that with the un-skippable cutscenes made it quite a lengthy section if you had to re do it a few times.

If you go by the most recent Nintendo Survey, it’s a remake

Nintendo have no kind of consistency on this. I really don't see how this is any different to Metroid Prime (new graphics, QOL improvements but still same game at its' core) and they called that a
Remaster (and released it at a lower price without any fanfare!).

Simple, to Nintendo, it’s Mario vs Metroid and Mario deserves a lot more fanfare in their eyes, it was poor planning that MP Remastered never got more adverts and just got oddly shadow dropped instead.

English version will likely drop in the next week or so, good to see some footage of the game though. Previews should be dropping today as well.

Look at the free gift you get when pre-ordering in Canada!

Would have loved that :lol:

Details on additions

A few new features have been added to the Switch version of Thousand-Year Door to help ease new players into the experience – these are particularly helpful if you’ve never played a Paper Mario game before. A new NPC called the Battle Master hangs out in Rogueport and helps teach you how to master action commands in battle. Tapping 'ZL' anywhere in the field will prompt one of your companions to give you a hint on what to do next. The Trouble Center – home to the game’s side quests – returns, but if you’re struggling, you can pay an NPC to give you hints on how to proceed. Plus, these hints will be logged in your Journal, which can be found in the menu. Merluvlee, a fortune teller who gives you hints on where to track down the game’s collectibles, isn’t a new NPC, but her hints are now logged in your Journal, too.


First up is the Partner Wheel, which allows you to instantly swap between partners outside of battle at the touch of a button. This is extremely useful and saves a lot of flipping through menus, as each partner has a field skill that you’ll need to navigate the world. Koops, the anxious and shy Koopa who wants to save his father, can grab items from afar by getting inside his shell and being launched forward; and Madame Flurrie can blow away enemies or reveal hidden paths by blowing big gusts of wind in front of her.


Speaking of backtracking, this is arguably the biggest weakness of the original GameCube game. That’s still the case in story chapters (looking at Chapter 2 in particular), but you’ll gain access to a Warp Pipe room which allows you to fast-travel back to the other towns. Yes, this existed in the GameCube version, but it’s been tweaked heavily for the Switch release – no longer do you need to break huge blocks to access pipes, nor do you need to remember which pipe goes where. Each blue pipe is labelled with a number corresponding to the chapter you visited that town in, meaning you can easily get back to Petalburg or the Great Tree by simply following the numbers. It might take a minute to unlock, but it makes those Trouble Center requests much easier to complete. And you can access it straight from Rogueport rather than going through the Sewers each time.


This looks wonderful :wub:
