Paper Mario Sequel on the Cards

RPG continues on GameCube.

Posted by Staff
Nintendo has confirmed that Paper Mario 2 for GameCube is on track to receive a Japanese release later this year, hinting towards a western roll-out sometime in 2005.

At this stage, details are pretty sketchy, but what we do know is that the game is being developed by Intelligent Systems, which coded the original N64 title, and will again sport the unique visuals that feature 2D characters within 3D environments. One new element mentioned was the fact that the flat plumber will this time possess the ability to fold himself into a paper aeroplane and take to the skies.

Apart from that, there's little more info available, but we do expect to discover more at E3 next month - stay tuned for details.

Maybe it's an April fool joke. Every web site has one, and it's always in the news... because that's very time sensitive. Surely SPOnG's news writers can't be so crap as to not bother with an April Fool's joke.

What sort of sad-assed loosers would that make them?

Just so long as Nintendo makes it longer than 10 hours, this should be great. Especially coming off of the great "Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga".
