The newest entry to the Paper Mario series will be released this Friday, October 7th for the Wii U. This spin-off from the main Mario games sees a 2D Mario navigating a 3D environment while facing off against a familiar cast of enemies. The Paper Mario games are often well received and remembered by fans. The exception being the recent Paper Mario: Sticker Star for the Nintendo 3DS. Some considered theĀ overall mechanics of the game to be watered down, citing the battle system as a glorified inventory management system. This has lead some to think that Color Splash might fall flat. The core mechanic of Color Splash is revitalizing the world with color after minions drained it to a pure white canvas. The question is, will bringing color to the bleak landscape be worth it, or will it just feel like a chore to clean up someone else’s mess?
