Some new Paper Mario: Color Splash footage has surfaced courtesy of the folks at GameXplain, featuring a boss battle with infamous character Iggy Koopa.

The video comes straight from PAX West and shows Paper Mario fighting the Koopaling with an array of cards and items — including a fan, piggy bank and dog bone — similar to those in Paper Mario: Sticker Star.

The upload also gives players their first look at Iggy Koopa, whose role in the game was hinted at after the presence of Morton Koopa was revealed during E3 earlier this year.

Paper Mario: Color Splash is set to be released in North America and PAL regions on October 7th, with a Japanese release due on October 13th.
