Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door release date: A paper version of Mario and a small Yoshi walk through a villag

Pinch me, I must be asleep. I had this strange dream that Nintendo announced a remaster of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, one of the best games on the GameCube and the pinnacle of the Paper Mario series. Sorry, hang on… it IS real, and the Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door release date is in sight. Our list of the best Switch RPGs is about to get a shake-up.

A sequel to Paper Mario for the N64, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is a turn-based RPG with a colorful cast of characters, fantastic gameplay all about timing your attacks, and some of the best writing that Mario has ever uttered. A gem on the GameCube, this remaster is a welcome one, as Nintendo has never released the game on any other system, and used copies are set to cost you a mighty heap of coins nowadays.

We don’t know yet if this remaster of Paper Mario: TTYD has any new content or features, but the original is already a lengthy game full of different worlds to explore, badges to augment your attacks, and a friendly host of party members you can swap between in battle. There’s a reason fans love this title, and we’re excited to see how well it can do on a system with an install base dramatically bigger than the GameCube’s. Did you play the original, and will you be picking this one up?
