Risa Tabata, producer on the upcoming Paper Mario: Color Splash for Wii U, recently sat down with USgamer to discuss the upcoming game. During the interview, she discussed how this game, along with the other Paper Mario titles, differ themselves from the Nintendo mascot’s other RPGs, the Mario & Luigi games.

“The old Paper Mario games, they were obviously RPGs and had a lot of good elements, but they weren’t just about the RPG elements,” Tabata explained. “They were full of solving puzzles, solving mysteries, the color factor, the visual style. For the Paper Mario series, we’re focusing more on those elements — the puzzle-solving.”

The producer also explained how the unique 3D worlds, compared to Mario & Luigi’s 2D games, allow for different visual, gameplay, and storytelling approaches. Both franchises are known for their humor, but the papercraft look of Paper Mario allows for different types of jokes and visual gags.

Color Splash comes out worldwide in October, so gamers don’t have long to wait to see what Tabata is talking about. For more insight on the game, be sure to check out the full interview.
