Paper Mario Comes to Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack
Get ready for a big RPG comeback: Paper mario is coming to the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack next week.
Nintendo Switch Online offers a fair amount of NES and SNES games, but Nintendo recently announced the release of an optional “Expansion Pack” that adds support for N64 and Sega Genesis games. While it does have its perks – like not forcing European gamers to use PAL framerate and a total of 38 N64 games predicted according to dataminers – it will also set you back a few bucks more each year.
Now a new game has been confirmed for the roster: you will soon be able to return to the magical world of the original. Paper mario.
Paper mario was originally intended as a sequel to the SNES Super Mario RPG, but it quickly evolved into something quite different. This new formula proved to be popular, kicking off several sequels (the most recent of which is Paper Mario: the king of origami).
Players take on the role of Mario (natch) as he travels to a distant land called Star Haven. The mystic Star Rod can grant any wish, but the evil Bowser has stolen the staff, trapped the seven Star Spirits, and kidnapped Princess Peach again. It’s up to Mario (and his friends) to save Star Haven and defeat Bowser on an epic journey through eight chapters.
