According to a report by VGC, Nintendo planned to reveal this new Paper Mario title at this year’s E3. However, thanks to the coronavirus, this has become impossible as the conference has been forced to shut down. There is not a lot of information about when Nintendo is going to drop this news, but it should be within the next couple of months.

Paper Mario is one of the more unique Mario spin-offs that Nintendo has created. The original game for the N64 introduced a ton of RPG elements like special items and character levels. Needless to say, the Paper Mario franchise has been adored by millions since its inception. The more recent entries into the series have not met the same admiration as the older titles. But the original and The Thousand-Year Door on the Gamecube are still held up as some of the best games Nintendo has made.

There is still no information on what the setting of the new Paper Mario is going to be. Fans will be left to guess and speculate until there is an official announcement. Other games are most likely on their way as well due to the milestone year that Nintendo has reached. 2020 could end up being a huge year for Nintendo and the Switch.
