Paper Mario: Sticker Star Screenshots From E3

By Ishaan . June 5, 2012 . 1:59pm

Paper Mario for the Nintendo 3DS has a new name—Paper Mario: Sticker Star. The reason for this is that the game’s focus is on stickers, which you can collect by peeling them off environments in the game or buying them in in-game shops.


Once you’ve got a sticker, you can use them in traditional Paper Mario-style battles as attacks, and use them to unfold the world around you to reveal new areas. While Nintendo haven’t provided any more information between these little tidbits, more is expected at their Nintendo 3DS software showcase tomorrow.

  • Words can’t describe how excited I am for this. I thought the first two Paper Mario games were astoundingly good.

    • Krisi92

      The first Paper Mario game is my favorite game ever, and the second one isn’t far behind. The third game was really awesome, too, although it was really different.
      This game is the biggest reason I got a 3DS.

    Is Kersti our first partner?! So there WILL be partners?! YES!!!

    I love the witty humor from the Paper Mario titles, I hope it returns for this one.

    • PersonaSpace

      I’m going to take a wild guess and say Kersti is most likely a non playable support character who provides plot and exposition for Mario. I didn’t see any partners in the traditional Paper Mario sense, but that could change easily.

  • XiaomuArisu

    Paper Mario is back!Give me partners and Luigi mode to make it the best PM ever!

  • Hau To

    “Mario is back in paper form for a fourth installment, this time on the
    3DS. Bowser launches an attack on Mario yet again, capturing Rosalina.
    Mario is not alone however, as Wario and Luigi are here to help as
    playable characters. Lakitu and other sidekicks join Mario along the way
    in this epic adventure.

    Collect the seven glass mushrooms as Paper Mario 3DS returns to turn-based combat, along with suprised 3D effects.”

    So partners confirmed for sure!?

    • Kavyn

      God I hope so. I desperately want a Shy Guy partner in the Paper Mario universe.

  • About time this game showed up. This was one of the reasons I got a 3DS.

    Though I can’t help but notice that all of the screenshots and trailers thus far are a little light on, uh, dialogue. This IS still a roleplaying game, right? Not to mention, that was kind of a big attraction for the previous games.

  • Göran Isacson

    Mario with sidekicks, and Luigi AND Wario at his side? Then… what of Waluigi?

    Oh man. Can you imagine if he becomes some kind of bitter rival, and reoccuring villain? PURPLE IS NOW THE ONLY COLOR. I would be so, so amazingly willing to pay Nintendo with many monies if that was the case.

  • boundries_san

    Is it wrong for me to be more exited on this game rather than most of Wii U games anmouncedT_T

  •  One of my E3 wishes came true<3 Now where da hell is Animal Crossing?!

  • Hau To

     Nope. This is the most wanted 3DS title on my game list. Now I just want to know if that description from PA is true or not.
