“Super Paper Mario,” a 2007 Wii exclusive, combines 2D and 3D platforming in a cute paper theme. Intelligent Systems and Nintendo’s third Paper Mario game is a welcome change.

The game’s story is quirky. After Count Bleck kidnaps Princess Peach and Bowser to use their union to release the Chaos Heart, Mario, and his friends must save the world. You explore many worlds with puzzles and enemies. Despite its cartoonish graphics, Super Paper Mario’s story explores love, sacrifice, and existential dread.

Characters, Gameplay

Super Paper Mario has unique mechanics. 2D platforming lets players explore the world like Super Mario Bros. Mario can “flip” the world into 3D, revealing hidden secrets and pathways. This mechanic adds exploration, puzzles, and action to platformers.

One of four playable characters—Mario, Princess Peach, Bowser, or Luigi—has unique skills and strategies. Peach glides far, Bowser breathes fire, and Luigi jumps high. As you progress, you can switch between characters to complete missions, adding a plan.


Super Paper Mario’s great. The game retains its charming, hand-drawn paper art. Paper cutouts of characters and environments populate a 3D world, adding to the game’s charm—player-unnoticeable 2D-to-3D transition. From a prehistoric world inhabited by primitive cannons to a high-tech space base, their art styles beautifully render all dimensions and worlds. This game shows that photorealistic graphics aren’t necessary to create an immersive, beautiful game world.
