With the Switch remake of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door right around the corner, Nintendo have started ramping up marketing for the game. As a part of that, they shared a 50-second animated short featuring Paper Mario and Bowser, which you can watch for yourself above.

Super Mario Bros. Wonder saw similar shorts before its release, so it seems likely we’ll be getting a few more over the next week.

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the nefarious X-Nauts are after the treasure behind the Thousand-Year Door! With a map from Princess Peach, and the help of a few locals, Mario journeys through a colorful world made of paper to find them first. To prevail in this quest, you’ll have to level up Mario and his friends, master timing-based attacks and badges to impress the audience on the stage of combat, and make use of all the abilities that come with being made of paper, like folding into a plane to cross big gaps or turning sideways to slip through narrow openings. The GameCube classic finds new life on Switch next week, on May 23rd, 2024.
