Although Paper Mario: Color Splash will not necessarily be story driven, you can rest assured that there’s going to be some sort of narrative in the upcoming Wii U game. In a recent interview, Nintendo producer Risa Tabata teased that players will be introduced to a “mysterious” opening, which they won’t fully understand until they make some progress and the story develops. Paper Mario: Color Splash is on track to launch on October 7.
“This time we have–I don’t know if I want to say a proper story–but we have a story,” Tabata said. “It starts from kind of mysterious opening. You’re not sure what is going on, and as you go through the story, you’ll realize, oh this is what happens. And there’s a lot of interesting stuff that happens with you and Huey.”
