Nintendo revealed a delightful little surprise during their 2015 E3 Digital Event. For the first time, the two-dimensional Paper Mario cast joins their three-dimensional counterparts from the popular Mario and Luigi series in the new 3DS game Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam.
The different gameplay and graphical styles from both series are prevalent here, and you’ll need to use each group of characters in different ways to successfully make your way through.
Mario and Luigi: Paper Jam is coming exclusively to the Nintendo 3DS in spring 2016.
Nintendo has updated their website with some features for the upcoming crossover title.
- Characters from the Paper Mario universe – including Paper Mario, Princess Peach, Bowser and Toad – jump out of a book and into the world of Mario & Luigi, resulting in hilarious and dangerous hijinks, trademarks of the Mario & Luigi franchise.
- Take advantage of Paper Mario‘s unique skills, like slipping through cracks, making copies of himself and folding himself up.
- Take down Bowser’s army of dastardly villains, solve puzzles and embark on quests as a brand-new trio of heroes.
- Got rhythm? Show off the moves of your giant papercraft by charging it up with dance and strut your way through battles with other giant papercrafts from Bowser’s army.
