Nintendo Reveals Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Update: Take a look at this new batch of screens, which are filled with Mario. And stickers.

Original Story: Initially announced two years ago simply as Paper Mario, the 3DS game has picked up a subtitle: Sticker Star.

The game continues the series’ legacy of shoebox diorama-style environments, but the handheld’s 3D brings new depth. Mario will collect stickers in the environment to use as his battle commands and access new areas. We see Mario use a sticker to hop in Kuribo’s shoe and stomp his enemies and wield a hammer to smash goombas.

Paper Mario: Sticker Star arrives on the 3DS this holiday.
