Nintendo's First Mario Game for Wii Leaves a Paper Trail of Excitement

Super Paper Mario Flips Between 2-D and 3-D Perspectives REDMOND, Wash.,
April 9 /PRNewswire/ --
Today's launch of Super Paper Mario(TM) for Nintendo's red-hot Wii(TM) system
transports players into another dimension. Like a story ripped from the pages
of a paperback novel, Mario has the ability to switch between a 2-D and 3-D
perspective. With the motion-sensitive and pointing abilities of the Wii
Remote(TM), this first Mario(TM) game for Wii delivers the goods.

At the start of the story, a mysterious villain kidnaps Princess Peach and
Bowser, and forces the unlikely couple to get married without any paperwork.
Mario, always the hero, sets out to save the day before a rift of dark energy
tears the universe apart. "This is one of the most remarkable Mario
adventures you've ever seen," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's
senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "Millions of
Wii owners will be happy, because this game appeals to everyone by providing a
fresh perspective on gaming." Players solve puzzles, perform new actions,
learn fresh abilities and beat bosses using the innovative and action-sensitive
remote. Players can even navigate through parts of the game as Peach, and of
course, Bowser, whose devastating fiery breath burns like lemon juice on a
paper cut.

Super Paper Mario, Rated E for Everyone, launches today. For more information
