Paper Mario: Color Splash is available now for pre-load. That means that all players who want to download the game before it launches two weeks from now are able to do so. Though for a brief hiccup it was fully playable yesterday, that has been resolved. No doubt that someone at Nintendo will be getting in trouble for that one.
Paper Mario: Color Splash is an action-adventure title starring Mario as he aims to restore color to Prism Island. This game is the fifth installment in a series of action role-playing games.This game strays away from the roots of the original, focusing a bit more on a puzzle adventure than the somewhat narrative-heavy style of the original titles in the series.
While initially being announced during a Nintendo Direct, more details on this title were revealed over the course of E3, as well as other conventions and events. Nintendo has been very forward about the changes they’re making to the series formula, citing that the Mario & Luigi series of RPGs will fill the shoes of the original titles in this series.
Paper Mario: Color Splash will launch exclusively for Nintendo Wii U on October 7th. It is available on the eShop for preorder and pre-loading now.
