Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is getting a remake

Gamecube title Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is receiving a remake for the Nintendo Switch in 2024, bringing yet another classic Mario game to the system.

The details:

  • During Wednesday's Direct, Nintendo revealed the remake as its final announcement, showing off its new, higher-quality graphics that fully retain the origami style of the original. The game has been given a release window of 2024, and it is expected that Nintendo will reveal a more precise date alongside more gameplay in a later Direct.
  • The Thousand-Year Door is widely regarded as the best entry in the Paper Mario series, with a turn-based combat system that rewards good timing, a comedic story, and a cast of familiar and lovable characters that builds on the original N64 title (which is available via Nintendo Switch Online). Since TTYD, the series has maintained similar visuals while shifting away from the RPG style and toward a more cross-genre style.
  • Following the success of the Super Mario Bros. Movie, Nintendo appears to be investing heavily in the Mario franchise. With Super Mario Bros. Wonder, fans will not only get a new 2D game but also spin-offs Princess Peach: Showtime and Mario vs. Donkey Kong, as well as a remake of Super Mario RPG, which is seen as a precursor to Paper Mario. Also, with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe's post-launch support coming to an end, many believe a new Mario Kart title will be released alongside Nintendo's new console, which is expected to be released next year.
