Shown as Paper Mario at the show, this game has already been retitled Mario Story for its Japan release. The RPG adventure kicks off after Mario receives an invite to a party at Mushroom Castle. The original name of Paper Mario comes from the fact that all of the well known characters appear in flat 2-D form! They are of course all set in a glorious 3-D world but as shocking as this may be, the game is a side-scroller! Despite this, Nintendo is promising that the game will be bringing a new gameplay experience to the public. The original Mario 64 is still one of the best games on the N64 - who knows, perhaps this could top it?

First Impressions

What on earth is going on in this game? It uses a similar graphic style to Yoshi's Story but puts Mario and all the usual characters (Luigi, Koopa and Peach) from the Mario games into the starring roles - and they're ail ? flat so they virtually disappear I when they turn around! This special look is one that is uniquely Nintendo and although it doesn't exactly make the best use of the N64's graphical power - it is fascinating to watch! The game is a kind of a sequel to Super Mario RPG and uses similar role playing elements - Mario Story will certainly be a game to look forward to!
