Happy Tuesday and end of February!
I’ve been talking a lot about Paper Mario: Color Splash this month and I thought what better character to do a Character Spotlight for than Paper Mario himself?
Not Mario-Mario, Paper Mario.
Paper Mario is his own character and known as such from Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, a game that was released in the US January 22, 2016 for the Nintendo 3DS. I personally have yet to play the game, but it’s on my list.
People speculate about Paper Mario being a different Mario from a paper world due to Paper Jam, where real Mario exists.
However, that doesn’t explain the previous Paper Mario games.
Paper Mario first appeared in Paper Mario released in the US for the Nintendo 64 on February 5, 2001. He then appeared in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Super Paper Mario, Paper Mario: Sticker Star, and the most recent, Paper Mario: Color Splash.
Paper Mario is one of my favorite characters because his first game was the first game I had ever played and completed on my own. The music is great, the gameplay is fun, and it’s a fairly easy game to boot.
The character Paper Mario will always have a special place in my heart.
What do you think of Paper Mario? The character and the games? Let me know in the comments below!
