Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door "Our Story Begins" trailer

Nintendo just dropped a new Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door trailer, dubbed “Our Story Begins”. The video gives some background information about the events that lead to the start of the game.

As a reminder, here’s what to expect from the remake:

March 10: Nintendo announced the release date for Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door on Switch as part of MAR10 Day, but if you were hoping there’d be a new trailer as well, you might have been disappointed. Aside from sharing the May launch timing, the company didn’t show anything else. However, some screenshots did drop on the Japanese website today giving us another look at the game.

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door will feature graphics that have been updated since the original release. Nintendo also said there’ll be some changes.

The Switch remake of Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door now has a release date. The game launches on May 23, 2024, Nintendo just announced.

Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is a new version of the GameCube RPG with updated graphics and other changes. Find more information in the following overview:

Paper Mario Thousand Year Door Luigi's Mansion 2 HD MAR10 Day

If you’ve been waiting to find out when Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door and Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD will be releasing on Switch, the good news is that it may not be much longer. X user Pyoro, who has a habit of leaking Nintendo announcements such as content from Nintendo Directs, now indicates that news about both titles will be shared on MAR10 Day. Presumably that will include updated launch timing.

MAR10 Day, of course, is March 10. That’s Nintendo’s way of recognizing the Super Mario franchise. Most MAR10 Days come and go without much news, with the company focusing on things like bundles and sales. However, we did get the release date for the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Booster Course Pass Wave 4 last year, so release dates aren’t out of the question.

Paper Mario Thousand Year Door graphics comparison

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is returning on Switch next year, and a new graphics comparison video shows how it stacks up to the original.

The first thing you’ll notice is that Nintendo has updated some assets. Textures have been enhanced for the HD era. Geometry has increased as well, which is something you can notice with certain objects like the trees. It doesn’t end there though, as with animations, some are brand new while others were updated. Other adjustments are improvements relate to the lighting, 16:9 aspect ratio (instead of 4:3), and more.

Hello, my spookies and cuties! This week on NEP, we have a special guest: Jonas Kaerlev of Gears For Breakfast, creators of A Hat In Time. Oni Dino and Galen chat with him about love for 3D platformers, game design philosophies, and a ton of underrated gems spanning across genres in gaming. In particular Jonas shares how they used their own branch of Unreal 3 on Switch, the necessity of trying new things in game development, and how they overcame Switch’s limitations and created an amazing experience without any big compromises.

We then cover Doom Eternal’s delay news and all the new details we’ve yet to discuss with Luigi’s Mansion 3. Gooigi is still gross. Partner mechanic should’ve been Daisy. We stand by that.

If you’re enjoying NEP, please consider giving us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, aka new iTunes. It’s incredibly helpful in getting us exposed to new listeners through algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door initially saw its debut 13 years ago. Even after such a lengthy period of time, the game held one random yet neat secret that apparently wasn’t discovered until today.

Did you know that Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door has a debug code? If you enter XBRBYL on the title screen, you’ll enter debug mode. It doesn’t do anything overly special, but when you hold Z on the main menu after inputting the code, it’ll show the date the game was built. Crash reports when the game crashes will be enabled as well.


Happy 10th birthday, Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door!

ON THIS EPISODE: We’re back! For a moment. To signify our triumphant return we bring you one of the funnier episodes we’ve ever had amidst a flurry of game discussion about Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door, Bayonetta 2, Castlevania, Pokémon Omega Ruby, and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. It’s a bit tangled and messy, but what are you gonna do? Fire us?

PLUS: A little bit of podcast navel-gazing and story time as we discuss how things went for 102 episodes, our favorite moments, some behind-the-scenes trivia, and the future of the show.

AND: A huge pile of listener mail with lots of kind words about the show, discussion of Zelda, our lesser-known game recommendations, our favorite eShop games, and much more. Will we ever be back? Nobody gets to know that except lord Elrond himself.
