Nintendo announced a brand new entry in the Paper Mario franchise exclusively for the Wii-U. Titled Paper Mario Color Splash this game finds Paper Mario finds himself in a world that is beginning to lose it’s color (literally). In order to save this new land, Paper Mario must use a special hammer to splash down color on objects and NPCs.
The Paper Mario series began all the way back on the Nintendo 64 with the release of the original Paper Mario. Splash is the first console release for the franchise since 2007’s Super Paper Mario on the original Wii. Our flat 2D friend had a co-staring role in this year’s Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam which was released in North America this past January on the 3DS.
