One of GameCube's standout games, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, is teed up for a comeback. This time though, it will be released on the Nintendo Switch platform—in 2024, if the latest reports are accurate. These reports, using information procured from rating bodies in Brazil and Korea, suggest that the much-loved RPG title is on track for its launch in the new year. The news has sparked excitement among Nintendo fans and video game enthusiasts who hold a special place in their heart for the original game.
The return was initially made public in a Nintendo Direct showcase earlier this year. Yet, the excitement doesn't stop at the mere return of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Enthusiasts can look forward to playing their classic favorite, enhanced with updated graphics for the modern Nintendo Switch. The revamped version is expected to maintain the fundamental aspects of the original game, though.
Its early classification could potentially hint at a quicker return than expected. The game does not yet have an exact release date, with only a vague 2024 timeframe given so far. The recent classification implies that the much-anticipated relaunch of this popular game could be closer than we had assumed.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, Nintendo seems to be implementing the same strategy with Super Mario RPG, another fan-favorite, slated for a release next month on the Switch. This approach of modernizing classic games without undermining their original charm appears to be Nintendo's new method of revamping old games.
Amidst this development, this summer Nintendo released an intriguing teaser video on YouTube that gave an early glimpse into the revamped Paper Mario working its magic on Switch:
The video has only served to heighten the anticipation for the game's release. After all, the classic Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door left a memorable impact on its fans when it first released on GameCube, and many are eager to relive those memories on the advanced Switch platform.
As excitement brews within the fanbase, we eagerly await any potential updates and announcements from Nintendo regarding Paper Mario's release. The question, "When will we get to play Paper Mario next year?" now seems to be on every Nintendo enthusiast's mind. While we don't have precise answers yet, what's certain is that the prospect of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door coming to Nintendo Switch has rekindled nostalgia and excitement among fans worldwide. While it is the return of a classic game, it also represents the future of gaming, a testament to Nintendo's commitment to keep innovating while respecting their gaming heritage.
