Paper Mario Sticker Star (Nintendo 3DS)
A sticky situation has never been so fun! There's trouble afoot in the town of Decalburg, where the devious Bowser has disrupted the beloved Sticker Fest by causing the Sticker Comet to explode. Now Royal Stickers and pieces of the comet have been flung far and wide, and it's up to Mario and his ally Kersti, a sticker fairy, to set things right by recovering them.
Unfortunately these missing stickers are now stuck onto Bowser and his minions, which means there will be plenty of puzzles to solve and battles to win in order to retrieve them. Mario and Kersti must travel far and wide to prairies, deserts, forests, and snowy mountains across the world and hunt them down!
This delightful handheld adventure will have new and experienced fans of the Paper Mario series captivated as they navigate colourful 3D environments, defeat enemies, collect oodles of stickers and items, and use them in a variety of fun ways. Take Mario on an exciting paper adventure and help him repair the mess Bowser has created using the powers of brand new stickers, only on the Nintendo 3DS, 3DS XL, and 2DS.
Stickers are the key to this imaginative adventure. Battles are turn-based like in the original Paper Mario game, but instead of an attack menu Mario whomps on his enemies using a sticker to attack. Stickers not only serve as Mario's attacks, but also help solve puzzles throughout the Paper Mario universe when placed in the correct spots. Stickers can be found and collected from all corners of the world, and the flashier the sticker the more powerful it is. Collect stickers by peeling them off their environment, buying them in shops, or even making your own, and store them in your notebook for later use.
Mario can also spend coins to use the Battle Spinner, which lets him use up to three stickers in one turn if the icons are lined up just right. The Battle Spinner can turn the tide in a difficult battle, so collecting coins through the game to use it is crucial.
Paper Mario: Sticker Star players get stronger by beating bosses, finding items, and completing side missions for other characters in the game, instead of accumulating experience points.
As players progress through the game, they'll find and use more powerful stickers to boost Mario's attack power. Players can also find HP-Up hearts to further boost Mario's maximum health.
The environments in Paper Mario: Sticker Star come to life in this visually stunning papercraft world on the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. They also contain a wide range of objects such as electric fans, scissors, and radiators that can be converted into more stickers, which can then be used to solve puzzles or win battles as Mario manoeuvres through each level.
