    Here's the latest factsheet from Nintendo detailing some new info for the upcoming Paper Mario title.

    The newest chapter of the Paper Mario story isn’t just out of this world … it’s out of this dimension. What at first glance appears to be a 2-D side-scroller ripped straight from the stylized pages of the Paper Mario universe soon turns into a hilarious dimension-shifting platformer possible only on Wii.

    Game storyline:
    Mario and Luigi are enjoying a lazy afternoon at their house when they hear the terrible news: Princess Peach has been kidnapped! The two brothers head straight for Bowser’s castle to get her back, but Bowser is just as surprised about Peach’s kidnapping as they are. At that moment, a strange top-hatted villain warps in and abducts everyone but Mario. The mysterious villain then forces Peach and Bowser to get married, creating a rift of dark energy that threatens to tear the universe apart. Only Mario can save the day … but he can’t do it alone.

    Characters:
    Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Bowser, classic Super Mario Bros. enemies like Goombas and Koopa Troopas, along with a slew of vibrant new allies and villains.

    Wii Controls:
    Super Paper Mario takes advantage of all the unique control features of the Wii. To play, players hold the Wii Remote sideways and control the game in classic Super Mario Bros. style and then use the motion-sensing and direct-pointing abilities for special game features.

    How to progress through the game:
    Early on, the 2-D side-scrolling game play appears to be reminiscent of New Super Mario Bros.® But as soon as Mario learns the ability to flip between dimensions, players will be constantly flipping between 2-D and 3-D to pass perilous pits, find hidden coins and passages and talk to characters who are visible only in 3-D.

    Players earn points for every enemy they stomp, item they grab and block they demolish. Once players rack up enough points, they level up. Every level gained allows Mario to take more hits and deal more damage to enemies. Later on, other characters join up with Mario. Players can swap between characters and use their unique abilities to solve puzzles and pummel bosses.

    Special powers/weapons/moves/features:
    All characters have their own abilities. Mario is the only character able to travel between the dimensions and flip between 2-D and 3-D. Princess Peach’s parasol allows her to glide across gaps. Bowser’s fiery breath incinerates enemies.

    Players will find Pixls hidden throughout various stages. Each Pixl gives Mario (or any of the other characters) access to a special ability. For example, one Pixl lets Mario flip sideways and become paper thin; another lets him grab enemies and hurl them.

    Items in Super Paper Mario work very similarly to items in Paper Mario™: The Thousand Year Door. Some items, like mushrooms, heal Heart Points. Other items, such as the Shooting Star, can be used during battle to destroy enemies.

    We'll I hope its better and longer than the second game.
    Paper Mario is one of my overall favorite games ever BUT the second game was only half the game the first one was. But third times the charm.

    the original paper mario was awesome but the gamecube one looked a lot different, though i never got to play so i don't know how good it is.

    this new one for the wii sounds like it will be pretty great --- when's it supposed to come out?

    It looks good in my oppinion.
    I think the port to the Wii will be the best of the series.

    I've been researching Paper Mario and it sounds like a really good series of Mario games! I honestly wasn't planning on getting this game but I'm so tempted now. The trailers look exciting too. And yeah I think its like semi RPG type game along with side scrolling and 3D elements. Sounds great to me!
