Paper Mario Thousand-Year Door Nostalgic Tunes badge change music

Hot off the heels of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door’s launch on Switch, we’re telling how to change music in the game with the Nostalgic Tunes badge.

Although this new version of the RPG is generally rather light on new content, there are a few new additions here and there. One such addition is the option to change the game’s music. The Switch remake has its own remixed soundtrack that plays by default, but by following a few steps you can opt to switch back to the original game’s unaltered music. This comes in the form of the Nostalgic Tunes Badge, which can be equipped or unequipped anytime and doesn’t cost any Badge Points to use.

How to get the Nostalgic Tunes Badge

If you’re wondering how to change Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door’s music back to its original version, as mentioned, you’ll need to equip a Badge called Nostalgic Tunes. You can access this Badge relatively early on; it’s available for sale in the Lovely Howz of Badges in Rogueport. It also only costs one coin to purchase. To get there, you’ll need to enter the inn from central Rogueport. From there, head to the second floor and out the door, and you’ll find the Lovely Howz of Badges on your left near the bridge. You need to advance the story past Rogueport Sewers in order for the shop to open, however. But once you unlock the game’s first area, you’re all good to come back and purchase the Nostalgic Tunes Badge plus any others you want! As a reminder, the Badge doesn’t cost any BP to use.
