“Paper Mario: Sticker Star” Is The Closest To A Mario RPG You’ll Get This Year
Unsurprisingly, a highlight for Nintendo’s 3DS Showcase was the latest game in the Paper Mario franchise, Sticker Star.
As you’ll see in the trailer, Mario’s biggest allies will be the glue-backed decorations, which become Mario’s quest items and attacks once collected. Players will find them everywhere in the vibrant world, from hidden behind bushes, stuck onto buildings, and even being carried by enemies.
The new game, despite its battle system, is not an RPG in the traditional sense. Paper Mario: Sticker Star will use items to increase stats on Mario, like HP, attack and more.
Paper Mario: Sticker Star will be released this fall on the 3DS.
