Furthermore, the rating summary disclosed some details about Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, revealing it’ll follow the titular character trying to rescue Princess Peach from an alien group just like the original. Puzzle-based and turn-based combat against paper creatures will be part of the RPG. In addition, Mario can attack cartoony enemies with a variety of attacks including boot stomps, hammer strikes, and fireballs, making them disappear into stars and coins.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door remake will also feature some flirtatious dialogue in addition to large chests and exaggerated proportions as per the ESRB rating. If you aren’t aware, the original iteration of the RPG launched almost 20 years ago in 2004 for the GameCube and was the second title in the Paper Mario franchise.
