Paper Mario (tentative title) is the next installment in the Paper Mario series of role-playing games. Unlike any other games in the series, it will be on a handheld platform.
Paper Mario, like the original and The Thousand Year Door, the game will feature turn-based battles and the return of partners to assist you in battle and obstacles. The game's environment instead of being in 2D will be 3D again, unlike Super Paper Mario. Also the game will take advance of the Nintendo 3DS's 3D capabilities, with the graphics slightly adjusted to create more of a sense of depth. The graphics are similar to that of the second Paper Mario and Super Paper Mario.
The game was announced at the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2011 (E3 2011), along with other titles to be released on the Nintendo 3DS, in trailer form. The game was again shown off, with a new trailer, at Nintendo World 2011 in Tokyo, Japan.
The magazine, Wired, speculates that the game was in development for a long time due to the "variety of scenes, battles and exploration" seen.
