When we first heard the rumour back in January, fans were excited at the idea that Intelligent Systems were working hard to bring Paper Mario to Wii U. But, after last week’s Nintendo Direct, they have changed their tune.
“Fans have been waiting for a new Paper Mario for a while now,” creator Jimmy Rustle writes. “After Sticker Star, we hoped Nintendo would have learned from their mistakes and make a better Paper Mario for the Wii U along the lines of The Thousand Year Door. Cancel Paper Mario: Color Splash and give fans what they’ve actually been waiting for.”
It’s a petition that reeks of entitlement, a knee-jerk reaction to a game that we still know so little about. How did you react to Paper Mario: Color Splash? Sound off in the comments.
