Mario and Luigi are enjoying a lazy afternoon at their house when they
hear the terrible news: Princess Peach has been kidnapped! The two
brothers head straight for Bowser's castle to get her back, but Bowser
is just as surprised about Peach's kidnapping as they are. At that
moment, a strange top-hatted villain warps in and abducts everyone but
Mario. The mysterious villain then forces Peach and Bowser to get
married, creating a rift of dark energy that threatens to tear the
universe apart! Only Mario can save the day...but he can't do it alone.
What at first glance appears to be your classic 2-D adventure ripped
straight from the stylized pages of the Paper Mario universe, soon turns
into an hysterical 3-D action game possible only on Wii!
Early on, the 2-D side-scrolling game play appears to be reminiscent of
New Super Mario Bros. But as soon as Mario learns the ability to flip
between dimensions, players will be constantly flipping between 2-D and
3-D to pass perilous pits, find hidden coins and passages, and talk to
characters who are visible only in 3-D.
Super Paper Mario's gameplay and smooth controls, plus its innovative
2D-to-3D effect, make for one of the best platformers in several years.
Its adventurous anthems seem to have the uncanny ability of pulling
players back in a quest for mastery. It's a Mario title anyone can play.
Paper Mario is part of the Nintendo Selects family of games—great titles
enjoyed by millions, now a great value at just $19.99 MSRP* each.
