This trailer is great. I love that you have Folded-Up Bowser as a party member, that's amazing

Here's hoping it's good again. I haven't played the last couple, but seemed like they weren't received well.

My natural initial reaction was positive but then I remembered they haven't made a proper Paper Mario in forever so the hype died quick. I am not optimistic but willing to be surprised.

It's actually a business management sim where Mario tries to corner the origami DIY kit market.

That'd still be preferable to what they've been doing. Rewatching the trailer, it looks like it's kinda got a focus on gimmicky crap and a hardon for Toads again.

Nintendo's tarnished a lot of their franchises with their decisions. They made Sticker Star and Color Splash, Other M and Federation Force, and Star Fox Zero.

Looks like it's a turn-based RPG set in a circular arena that you can manipulate.

^ It's listed as "action, adventure" like Color Splash, not "Role-Playing" like Nintendo's other Mario RPG series, Mario & Luigi.

Categories like that are often subjective, though.

That's true but these are both Mario games so I think its a noteworthy observation. I've also seen translations for the battle system video, and it doesn't seem like there's much indication of traditional RPG elements:

At best it seems like they're trying to blend elements of the old games and new games, but they should really drop everything about Sticker Star. Either make it like TTYD or do something entirely new like Super Paper Mario did. Anything but RPG battles without RPG elements (???????).

I'm more surprised that it isn't a hard course-correct back to a traditional RPG like the first two games, which is kinda what I thought they would do honestly.

So far it looks like Color Splash with maybe a better battle system. I'm not won over yet, but I'll keep my eyes on it.

yeah outside of animal crossing it's seemed like nintendo has been keeping their cards very close on game announcements with so many things up in the air with coronavirus. announcing a game at all, much less a game coming out in TWO MONTHS, is wild.

Note to self: Never let anyone fold me into origami.

I almost wanna say this happened due to covid, but I dunno.

...they were pretty tight-lipped on Fire Emblem: Three Houses, too. They were also.... quite silent on most of what Sword and Shield had to offer. Did they even tell us that much about Breath of the Wild or Mario Odyssey, either?

i mean nintendo has a few releases a year where they're like "here's this game announcement. it's out in a couple months or even right now," but now seems like a wild time to do that. guess this has probably been nearly-done for a while.

all the games you listed as examples were games we knew were in development for forever, even if they were tight-lipped in some cases. there have been rumors of a new paper mario, but a lot of people thought the franchise might be completely dead.

I don't know who thought Paper Mario was dead, it hit every console since its inception aside from DS. Color Splash didn't make much of a splash though so I guess I could've seen them taking a hiatus.
