Originally intended for the GameCube, Super Paper Mario’s release was moved without fanfare to the Wii, sealing its destiny of becoming Mario’s first outing on Nintendo’s new console.
The usual turn-based battle gameplay that fans of the series became accustomed to was swapped on this occasion for a combined platform sidescroller/RPG experience.
The series is most notable for its stunning 2D and 3D dimension-shifting visuals, and this version certainly doesn’t disappoint.
