How can there not be a thread about this yet?!? I am super excited about this game! :)

http://papermario.nintendo.com

The Paper Mario: Sticker Star game is a flat-out epic new adventure, starring the
Mushroom Kingdom's most famous hero in an elaborate papercraft world. With the land
positively packed full of stickers, Mario™ will collect and use them to fight off baddies,
uncover secrets, and more. Fans of the Paper Mario series will discover all new gameplay
elements new to the franchise, while newer players will enjoy a craftastic new twist
on their favorite Nintendo hero—only for Nintendo 3DS!



I have this game pre-ordered at amazon for $29.99. I think they had the wrong price originally and I got in before they changed it. Yeah!

I'm probably picking this up. The IGN review is a little troubling though. They say it is good but there will definitely be times where you get stuck and have no idea what to do next and the game doesn't point you in the right direction so you end up doing a ton of backtracking to find something you may have missed. I hate that. Other than that the review was very positive.

Yeah, but all of the paper mario games have been like that. They quite often don't really give you any direction, and you have to backtrack a lot, at least at the end of the game.

There were some frustrating bits in the first two games, but I still loved them. Plus are there really any RPGs that don't leave you scratching your head and wondering what to do next sometimes?

So $30 from Amazon is the best price for this?

EDIT: Amazon is showing $40... too much for a portable game, IMO. So where can this be had on the cheap?

Kmart is doing $15 coupon for $45 gaming purchase starting 11/11, so I'm going to try and find a clearance game to buy. You can also get a pre-order card from Target for $1 that gives you a $5 GC back. I actually bought one of those, but won't pick it up now with the better Kmart deal. (I'm still hoping for a better deal as well... B2G1 would be awesome.)

I have a pre-order from amazon for $30, but that's long since gone. A short time ago Newegg had a pre-order for it for $30 as well, but also that is gone I believe.

If I had a 3DS, I would drop $40 on this in a heartbeat. Mario RPGs have always been quality fun for me.

Yeah, it's a pretty hollow complaint. It's not just the Paper Marios, backtracking is an RPG staple. Reviews of this title should begin and end with goat attack. When it comes to goat attackin, I'm picking up what Nintendo is laying down.

It would be easy if that "blind" game could be Zero Escape, but it appears Kmart is only selling that one online. :-(

does anyone think a 7 year old would like this game? Of course they're blasting the commercial on all the kids channels, so my son wants it. He has literally not taken 3D Land out of his 3DS since launch last year and has beaten it multiple times, collected all three coins in all levels, when I couldn't (or didn't try) to finish past the second world.

I've tried telling him that this will be nothing like that, probably hard and complex, but he is obsessed with stickers (just spent $30 damn dollars on a Pokemon and Lego Sticker Book at his school book fair), probably stems from his like of Little Big Planet too.

So IDK, I don't mind dropping $30 on it by PMing Frys or something, but if he is just going to get frustrated, I'd rather spare him from that..

If he can read and understand simple math then I would guess he will probably enjoy it. My son (5) isn't quite there yet.

There is too much reading for a typical 7-year old, IMO.

P.S. If he likes to get coins, why not go for NSMB2? You can even buy extra levels online to download.

I think it depends - when my daughter was 7 she was reading "real" books (small font, no pictures) like Harry Potter... although she is pretty nuts about reading (she prefers it to all other activities and reads like 3 books a week). I'm pretty sure my son won't be like that when he is 7 though... so I think it really depends on the kid.

thanks guys! Yeah I was worried about the reading aspect, hence why I've always deterred him from the Pokemon games, but from what I saw on videos for Paper Mario, it looked like most of the character captions were gibberish. I guess the reading aspect comes in to advance the story (?) He reads alright for his age, at least thats what his teachers say and from the books we read at night..perhaps I will search out a demo unit with it in or somehow let him try it out first.

P.S. If he likes to get coins, why not go for NSMB2? You can even buy extra levels online to download.

Yup, I know, picked that up day one to try to get him off 3D Land, he played it for 20 mins and he just didn't like it for some reason. IDK, he didn't like NSMB either. Maybe he doesn't like 2D planes...kids nowadays! Have no roots..

Does anybody know how many blocks this will take up if you download it? I may go that route. I only have 5000 blocks left on my SD card.

Amazon actually mailed my copy today so it will be here on Monday! That's the first time they have ever done that for me with a Sunday release game. Usually they don't mail them until the Monday after.
