Nintendo Selects: Super Paper Mario - WiiMario and Luigi are enjoying a lazy afternoon at their house when
they hear the terrible news: Princess Peach has been kidnapped! The
two brothers head straight for Bowser's castle to get her back, but
Bowser is just as surprised about Peach's kidnapping as they are.
At that moment, a strange top-hatted villain warps in and abducts
everyone but Mario. The mysterious villain then forces Peach and
Bowser to get married, creating a rift of dark energy that
threatens to tear the universe apart! Only Mario can save the
day...but he can't do it alone.
Early on, the 2-D side-scrolling game play appears to be reminiscent
of New Super Mario Bros. But as soon as Mario learns the ability to
flip between dimensions, players will be constantly flipping
between 2-D and 3-D to pass perilous pits, find hidden coins and
passages, and talk to characters who are visible only in 3-D.
Super Paper Mario's gameplay and smooth controls, plus its
innovative 2D-to-3D effect, make for one of the best platformers in
several years. Its adventurous anthems seem to have the uncanny
ability of pulling players back in a quest for mastery. It's a
Mario title anyone can play.
* 2-D...AND 3-D!
Run through vibrant 2-D worlds, stomping on enemies and breaking
blocks....then, with the press of a button, flip into 3-D! In the 3rd
dimension, you'll find hidden paths, battle foes, and uncover secrets as

Bros. style! You can shake the Wii Remote to pull off stylish moves and

helpful hints from your sidekick. Not only that, but you'll also play as
Peach and Bowser, both with their own sets of essential skills.

When a mysterious villain kidnaps Peach and Bowser and forces them to
get married, their union creates a rift of dark energy that threatens to
