Paper Mario: Sticker Star is bringing the Paper Mario series to a handheld device for the very first time. During the live E3 demo we were introduced to a living, breathing diorama on the Nintendo 3DS system.
During turn-based battles players will use stickers found in the game to unlock attacks. Examples include using a jump sticker to bounce on a Goomba's head, or a turtle shell sticker to kick a green shell towards foes.
It was also revealed that battles won't reap XP, but rather solving puzzles, helping NPC's and exploring the game world will actually grant you experience and level you up through the adventure.
The game is set to launch this holiday season, with a gameplay trailer available right now in the eShop.
