    Yeah... I don't want to get into console wars or anything, but to me that is a lot more interesting and impressive than the PS5 tech demo that came out last night. That was technology, but this is art.

    It looks pretty good but I'll wait for reviews as I'm fully engaged with Animal Crossing for the next few months.

    The scene where he uses his extendable arms to molest Toadette seems a bit out of line.

    This looks like it might just be the thousand year door follow up I've been waiting for. Nice to see it arriving so soon.

    This looks fantastic, can't wait! It's also a surprise it's coming out so soon. Usually Nintendo announce first party stuff then you wait for years.

    Totally get where you're coming from, it's bloody gorgeous.
    My 2 fave games visually are probably Okami and Wind Waker.

    Looks stonking, as long as it has a decent battle system and an entertaining story and characters (like TTYD) then It'll be cracking.

    @Armoured_Bear I'm 20 hours into Okami at the moment and yep, still a stunning game with an incredible art style.

    Just realised this is out same day as Ghost of Tsushima...will likely get both!

    All the Paper Mario games have disappointed me since they changed direction after TYD. This doesnít look like itís going back in that direction either which was a much more rounded RPG experience. It still looks fantastic but I reckon it could well be wafer thin. Snarf.

    I was going to be sceptical but the trailer shows a beautiful world.

    I havent played a paper Mario, how is it different to the regular platforming variety? I could still see platforming in the trailer.

    @Technoishmatt the one I've played was a straight up JRPG, not a platformer.

    It was the thousand year door for the Game Cube. I never got around to playing the sequels, but I've heard they were a bit lighter.

    What Tonka says. They are very far removed from a Mario platform games. They are narrative driven, very puzzle orientated, and the combat is a mix of RPG and timed button presses. They work very well.

    Could someone write a Quick Summary of how the later Paper Marios differ from TTYD? I'd appreciate it. Or maybe there's a video by some Discerning, Angry, Critical etc Gamer I can watch? (They tend to play PC though, and smell of onion)

    @Tonka

    The first two on N64 and GC were RPGs, like proper turned based RPGs and they were wondrous! The Wii version and onwards became exploration/adventure games with little to no rpg elements and reviews have been mixed, to say the least.

    Personally Thousand Year Door didnt wow me much when I played it on Cube. I did finish it though but some of the writing felt a bit off, like trying too hard to be funny.
    I do think this looks great regardless.
