Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door ‘Overview’ Trailer Released

    A five-minute sneak peek.

    Nintendo has released a new overview trailer for Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, highlighting five minutes of the game before it launches. 

    Nintendo initially released Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door in 2004 for the Nintendo Gamecube. The entry marked the last time the series stuck to a more traditional turn-based battle system. Nintendo would release multiple follow-ups with drastically different combat systems, such as Super Paper Mario, Paper Mario: Color Splash, Paper Mario: The Origami King, and more. In late 2023, Nintendo announced that The Thousand-Year Door would be getting a Switch remaster.

    Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door Overview Trailer


    Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door launches on May 23 for Nintendo Switch. Here’s an overview of the upcoming Nintendo Switch remaster, via the game’s eShop page:

    Join Mario on an epic paper-adventure to collect the Crystal Stars before the X-Nauts do!

    The nefarious X-Nauts are after the treasure behind the Thousand-Year Door! With a map from Princess Peach, and the help of a few locals, Mario journeys through a colorful world made of paper to find them first. To prevail in this quest, you’ll have to level up Mario and his friends, master timing-based attacks and badges to impress the audience on the stage of combat, and make use of all the abilities that come with being cursed—er, conveniently made of paper—like folding into a plane to cross big gaps or turning sideways to slip through narrow openings.

    Leaf through a storybook world with charming characters in every fold

    Surprises abound in this deep and engaging tale, where everyone’s got something to say and it’s often not what you’d expect. Mario will meet all kinds of interesting folks on his journey, like the upbeat and studious Goombella and the shy but determined Koops. Some of these characters will need your help with their own quests, or even join your party. Others, like Peach and Bowser, have stories of their own that you’ll play between Mario’s chapters!

    A classic turns the page, bringing fresh visuals and updated features

    Twenty years after the original game on the Nintendo GameCube™ system, this version for the Nintendo Switch system has revamped graphics, and a suite of additional changes that make the game easier than ever to enjoy.
