Latest Mario action/RPG is more action than RPG.
Ending a long saga that began as a GameCube title at last year's E3, Nintendo announced today that it has released Super Paper Mario for the Wii. One of our top 7 picks for the Wii in 2007, Super Paper Mario is the latest in the action/RPG Paper Mario series, which began on the N64 in 2001. This latest installment centers around Mario's ability to switch between 2D and 3D perspectives, and all of the clever puzzles that result from that. This is also the most action-oriented installment, with less of an emphasis on the RPG aspects.
"This is one of the most remarkable Mario adventures you've ever seen," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "Millions of Wii owners will be happy, because this game appeals to everyone by providing a fresh perspective on gaming."
Super Paper Mario is rated E for Everyone, and retails for $49.99.
