Release date incoming?
We’ve known for awhile now that Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door was getting a remake for Switch, but we have no clue when the title is launching. Nintendo only shared that the title would arrive sometime in 2024, but now we have a little bit of hope that it’s not too far off.
The official ESRB rating for Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door has popped up online, which means that the game is now content-complete. This should pave the way for an official release date sometime in the near future, so hopefully Nintendo shares that information soon. As for the ESRB rating itself, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door has been given an E for Everyone due to “Mild Fantasy Violence, and Mild Suggestive Themes.”
If you want to see more about the ESRB rating, you can see the full descriptor for Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door below.
This is an adventure role-playing game in which players help Mario rescue Princess Peach from an alien group. As players traverse whimsical worlds, they interact with characters and engage in turn-/puzzle-based combat against paper creatures. Players use various attacks (e.g., boot stomp, hammer strike, fire balls) against cartoony enemies that disappear into stars and coins. A handful of characters engage in brief flirtatious dialogue (e.g., “Aren’t you a fine specimen of a man”; “Perhaps if I…grabbed you and gave you a little sugar”), and/or are designed with large chests/exaggerated proportions.
