US Release Of Super Paper Mario Dated

Nintendo have announced that Super Paper Mario will be released for Nintendo Wii on 9th April in the States. Originally intended to be lined up for the GameCube Nintendo saw sense and moved it to the Wii – ’cause they like money.

Like the similar titled games of the rest of the series the game will mostly contain side-scrolling platform-style gameplay but a for new twist on the Wii the game will be played with the Wiimote held sideways – harking back to days with the NES pad clamped in our sweaty palms. Also – as recent screenshots show – the game allows players to switch to three dimensions to aid exploration. Not much more is known about the game as Nintendo are being more than a bit secretive about the title… hopefully Europe will not have to wait too long to get our hands on the game.
