Paper Mario games are loved for many reasons, their unique art style being one of them. You wouldn’t have Paper Mario without the paper esthetic of course. But wouldn’t it be cool to see what other major Nintendo properties would look like with the same look? YouTube creator 64 Bits shows us just that.
In this awesome trailer for “Paper Zelda,” we get to see iconic scenes from all over the Zelda franchise played out in the same beautiful art style as Paper Mario; scenes like the fight with Ganondorf at the end of Wind Waker, playing Saria’s Song for Darunia in Ocarina of Time, and even the moon falling on clock-town from Majora’s Mask.
The trailer opens up in the same way as the pre-menu opening for Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door and shows everything from combat, to an overworld map, and even a paper remake of the Breath of the Wild 2 teaser trailer.
64 Bits wrote this about the video-
“This should keep you going while we wait for a new Paper Mario and Breath of the Wild 2! We put SO much love in this! And no sadly it’s not a real game and it probably never will be (Nintendo, please take notes though!!) BUT you can still send it to your friends pretending it’s real.”
