Platform-jumping, brick-smashing, goomba-stomping Mario adventures are back!
Mario and Luigi are enjoying a lazy afternoon at their house when they hear the terrible news: Princess Peach has been kidnapped! The two brothers head straight for Bowser's castle to get her back, but Bowser is just as surprised about Peach's kidnapping as they are. At that moment, a strange top-hatted villain warps in and abducts everyone but Mario. The mysterious villain then forces Peach and Bowser to get married, creating a rift of dark energy that threatens to tear the universe apart! Only Mario can save the day... but he can't do it alone.
Prepare to enter a whole new dimension with Super Paper Mario on Wii! The planet's favourite moustachio'd hero returns in the third Paper Mario game, bringing a different perspective to the series as he calls on old friends – and foes – to help him tackle a mysterious enemy from a bizarre parallel universe. Lead Mario in his quest to overthrow the evil Count Bleck before he succeeds in creating a Chaos Heart and bringing about the end of the world as we know it, playing as Luigi, Princess Peach, and Bowser along the way as you free them from captivity, on your Nintendo Wii or on your Nintendo Wii U in Wii Mode.
Early on, the 2D side-scrolling gameplay appears to be reminiscent of New Super Mario Bros., but as soon as Mario learns the ability to flip between dimensions, players will be constantly flipping between 2D and 3D to pass perilous pits, find hidden coins and passages, and talk to characters who are visible only in 3D.
An involving mixture of RPG and platform elements, Super Paper Mario offers a huge adventure spread over eight eye-catching environments with something new to discover around every corner. Enlist the aid of Pixl sidekicks along your path to gain special skills. By pointing the Wii Remote at the screen, for example, you can get secret information and reveal hidden objects along the way!
