Yes, it turns out that the Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door 3D leak which went viral is fake. It’s not too surprising, but it did lead to plenty of speculation which kept some people entertained. The leak was the result of Photoshop and Adobe Premiere. Oh well, guess we will have to keep on dreaming.
Thanks, Kallum and Scott
Well, this is certainly interesting. A Reddit user has posted a teaser video for Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door 3D for the Nintendo 3DS. The video has now been taken down but that hasn’t stopped people from posting some gifs from the aforementioned video. Who knows? It does look fairly believable, but I guess we won’t know for sure until the next Nintendo Direct. Then again, that Rayman leak for Super Smash Bros looked pretty believable and we know that was faked.
Paper Mario Amiibo are something we’ve all been waiting for, but nothing has been announced. To make up for this, dedicated Deviant Art user NBros has created his own fully functioning Paper Mario Amiibo figures complete with custom made Amiibo packaging. They are currently available to purchase on eBay. You can get Mario here and Luigi here. Would you like to purchase them?
A new Paper Mario should hopefully be coming to one Nintendo system or another eventually. Interestingly Walmart has now started listing the game for the Wii U. Sadly it appears to be a pretty basic listing with no concrete information and juicy details and it now appears to be removed. I’m not entirely sure how accurate they are for leaks, but this should keep Paper Mario fans happy.

Super Smash Bros producer Masahiro Sakurai has revealed via Miiverse that Super Smash Bros for the Nintendo 3DS will feature a gorgeous Paper Mario Sticker Star themed stage. The newly announced stage is fragile so Sakurai hinted that strong winds will blow the stage away. He also revealed a second screenshot this time of a stage based on the S.S. Flavion from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. Here’s what Sakurai had to say.
Pic of the day. For the first time ever in the Super Smash Bros. series, here’s a Paper Mario stage! It’s made of paper, so strong winds will blow it away.
Since the stage is paper, it transforms when it folds over and opens up again. This ship is the S.S. Flavion from Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.

To help raise money for Child’s Play, Cody Thomson, 36, is planning to walk across several states in the U.S., including N.C., Tenn., Miss., Ark., Okla., Texas, N.M., Ariz. and Calif. Thomson, a self-proclaimed avid gamer, said to IGN that he is packing his Nintendo 3DS and plans to play Paper Mario, Professor Layton and Fire Emblem at the end of each day. It’s going to take roughly eight months for Thomson to traverse the country, and he will have walked about 3,000 miles once he’s done. Thomson’s lengthy journey begins on March 10th.
“I’ve spent months on the planning. Now I’m a few weeks out from setting off, so it’s a good time to start talking about this and raising some funds for Child’s Play. I’m seeking about $8,000 to fund the costs of the journey and everything else is for the kids. The sky’s the limit. But however much I get, I’m doing this.”
“When I was a kid I had an eye disease and the doctor actually advised that I get a games machine to strengthen my eye muscles. My parents bought me an Atari 2600. I wasn’t hospitalized, but games helped me. They had a beneficial impact. They helped me to see and I think that Child’s Play is wonderful, what they do. Kids in hospital need escapism as much as anybody.”
“I’ve been saving up games. I have Paper Mario, Professor Layton and Fire Emblem planned, so that’s something to look forward to at the end of every day.”
