Paper Mario: Color Splash will release on Wii U on October 7, Nintendo has announced. Nintendo has not given any separate release dates for the UK and North America, so at the moment, it appears that the game will be available simultaneously in both regions.

  • A hilarious action-adventure game set on mysterious Prism Island.

  • Color in colorless spots to solve puzzles and search for clues.
  • Revive Toads who have been drained of their color.
  • New Battle Card system
  • Cleverly use Battle Cards during puzzling battles to defeat enemies.
  • Summon objects with Things cards.
  • Use Enemy cards to summon allies.
  • The new cutout feature allows you to extract areas from environments to overcome obstacles whenever possible.
