Nintendo put out a longer trailer for the upcoming Paper Mario game and it continues to convince me that the premise of the game is still fantastic. The concept for the bosses is a pretty entertaining idea that if they lean into just the right amount could work really well.
That being said, I'm pretty disappointed by what they've shown of the companions you'll be working with, just purely based on their designs. I've no doubt they'll be able to give them interesting personalities and writing, but walking around with a standard looking Bob-omb and Magikoopa is a far cry from the days of Admiral Bobbery and Lady Bow.
The trailer also tells us a bit more about the combat system, which seems to revolve around this new spinning battlefield concept. They don't really show enough of it to make any judgements, but from it appears like Mario's partners aren't involved in combat which is massively disappointing for what I'd like out of the combat. This definitely looks like it has the potential to be a fun system though so here's hoping I guess!
How's everyone else feeling about what's been shown?
