RUMOR: Paper Mario for the Wii U to be Announced This Year

 

Is a new Paper Mario game in the works? According to Emily Rogers, five different sources have informed her that a new Paper Mario game for the Wii U is currently being localized and tested. If true, the game is set to be announced this year and is developed by Intelligent Systems, the studio that has developed every other entry in the Paper Mario series.

If this is true, I hope they return to the formula of the first two games, or try something new.

FINALLY!!! An actual Paper Mario game that’s not a crossover of another series. I was worried that they weren’t gonna release a paper Mario game for the Wii U, and that the next main one would be on the NX. Wonder how the one for the Wii U will be, that is if this rumors true. (Please let it be so)

To be fair, Paper Mario was one of the last Mario games for the Nintendo 64.

Oh really? I didn’t know that but then again I’ve never actually played Paper Mario 64 but I have seen lets plays of it. I also know that Mario Party 9 was the last Mario game to be released on the Nintendo Wii I believe.

I want this to be multiplayer platformer like Super Paper Mario with partners to aid you in battle. And please bring that mailman koopa back!

I may get critized for this, but I’d like Paper Rosalina. I mean, she’s now fully recurring and a part of the Mario crew.
It would be so nice, she could not be playable, but have a role in the story, even if minor. There could be a chapter in space in which she becomes a central or a minor part in the story and aids the heroes.

If they put Paper Rosalina in then Paper Wario, Paper Daisy, and Paper Waluigi would have to be in this next paper Mario game as well. Because I fully doubt that they would just completely skip those three to the latest character being Rosalina. And they were all introduced before her, which is why that’s the only way I can see her in the next paper mario game.

The closest that could come is Wario.
The others have been turned into Spin-Off exclusive characters (No M&L, Main Series and PM games)

I think Wario and Rosalina have strong chances of appearing in a future Paper Mario/Mario & Luigi game. Rosalina could be an NPC who assists the brothers if they go to space, and Wario could be an NPC/Boss (Or he could be playable in a Mario & Luigi game). Wario actually almost appeared in Superstar Saga, but was replaced by E. Gadd.

Oh actually I read into this after Mario and Luigi Paper Jam came out but apparently Daisy and Rosalina do make somewhat of a cameo in that game as battle cards (although its not technically a physical appearance from them it should at least count for Daisy)

Except that Rosalina is recurring in the mainstream Mario games while Daisy and Waluigi are spinoff only. Paper Mario is mainstream. I think she can be in without those 2.

Yeah I guess your right about those (I just remembered about those games too just right after I posted that comment) but I would like Rosalina to be in the next paper mario game, I just don’t like it when certain characters are left out is the thing. And TECHNICALLY Daisy wasn’t just a spinoff character because the only mainstream game that she appeared in was the game that she debuted in which was Super Mario Land. And Waluigi I guess his chances aren’t very likely but the fact that they just keep skipping to Rosalina really annoys me tbh.… Read more »

Wario also debuted on a mainstream game and he’s still not in PM

I meant that it is still possible for Daisy and Waluigi to appear in a mainstream game in general.

Yeah I just said that in a previous comment duh. To make it more clear I shoudve said a mainstream game where Daisy and Waluigi are playable.

Rosalina was in Smash before Daisy and Waluigi. But I think you might be right about Wario.

A little late on this, but I think a Paper Rosalina in the game would be great. And since it’s an RPG, maybe we’d get to see a little bet more of her personality.

I would say make it like the first 2 games with some new elements.
