Paper Mario 3 - Isn't It Time?

#1 Edited by Blubba (527 posts) -

Doesn't the time seem about right for one? With so many people hating on Nintendo lately and their rather underwhelming E3 press conference (though better than last year), wouldn't it make sense to at least announce the game and maybe show a logo? I can't imagine that much is beyond them. Loads of people want a sequel and both of the previous games were well received. Though I haven't really been keeping up lately with the industry, I have no idea what Intelligent Systems is working on right now, does anybody else?

And for the record, I don't count Super Paper Mario. Okay game, but it wasn't a traditional Paper Mario game and it can't really count as the Wii's Paper Mario since it really was just a GameCube port.

Super Paper Mario was great, but yeah I would also like something along the lines of The Thousand Year Door.

No Paper Mario 3, what they need to do is commission Square to do Super Mario RPG 2.

That would be vastly more amazing.

I don't know, I'm kind of tired of sequals. I would love to see a knew character from Nintendo.

I hope there is another one.  I loved Super Paper Mario but, I think I'm ready for it to be an RPG again.

With E3 coming up, I'm sure we'll get an announcement for Paper Mario 3 soon. Hopefully no more side scrolling, I want it to go back to it's RPG roots.

Yes. Nintendo has some amazing creative minds working for them, yet all they do is pump out the same stuff over and over because it sells. Against all logic, I'd rather see them creating new IP. The Nintendo name is big enough that people will buy whatever has their name on it regardless of the star character.

i think it would be more amazing in terms of a legal thing and two gigantmo companies coming together again. But yeah, I'd play the hell out of that, assuming they evolve it so that it's at LEAST as good as the Paper Mario games.

Super Paper Mario sucked. Please let me relive the magic that was Paper Mario Nintendo. I might even buy a Wii  if you do!

I didn't like Super Paper Mario. I did finish it but I felt let down by it. I would like a return to the original RPG formula because The Thousand Year Door was amazing!
