Nintendo Switch Online continues to add products to its playful offering, as the Kyoto house will enrich its selection of Nintendo 64 titles with RPG Paper Mario from December 10, 2021. It is a historical video game, which helped to pave the way for the many spin offs that over the years have seen the famous mustachioed plumber as protagonist.
Nintendo Switch Online: Paper Mario arrives
Paper Mario was one of the first spin offs of the Mario series and has the great merit of having totally upset the formula ranking of the saga up to that point, veering towards RPG-style gameplay, complete with turn-based combat. In addition to Mario, there are all the main characters of the plumber’s adventures, whose skills will be fundamental to overcome the obstacles we will encounter.
Here is the official description of the game:
“Mario may be in 2D, but this adventure is anything but subtle! Paper Mario seamlessly blends the heroic plumber’s platformer with hilarious RPG mechanics, quirky characters and wacky challenges. Embark on an epic journey into the Mushroom Kingdom to free the star spirits imprisoned by a power-hungry Bowser. During the adventure you will fight enemies in challenging turn-based battles; you will collaborate with a varied choice of skilled companions, discover secret mini-games and even cook a cake! “
This is certainly a choice that comes from Nintendo’s desire to improve its subscription service and which represents an excellent incentive to subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online + Add-on package. The hope is that the big N will not limit itself to this isolated experiment and will take action to bring more and more products as loved as Paper Mario into its service.
At the same time Nintendo should solve some problems that many users are experiencing regarding the emulation of its old consoles, which often negatively impact the performance of these ports.
