Impressions: Paper Mario 3DS Trailer

One of the lesser known 3DS titles confirmed at E3, Paper Mario has a trailer and it reveals little but still makes you want to play it. The game was not shown during Nintendo’s E3 press conference, but can now be found all over the net (including right here!) and as a free download from the Nintendo 3DS eShop.

What we do know right now is that this series’ next installment will be developed by Intelligent Systems, the guys who have done the previous three Paper Mario titles. No word on any dynamic changes to the series, as well as any tentative release date.

In the trailer, we see Paper Mario doing a lot of platforming and then triggering RPG-style battle sequences when hit or stomping on enemies. Nothing too out of the ordinary for the series, and, with a heavier focus (at least from what we have seen in the trailer) on platforming, very reminiscent of Super Paper Mario for the Nintendo Wii. Check out the trailer for yourself, and we’ll bring more news to you about the title as more is revealed.
