It’s that time of the month where the rumor mill churns, and the speculation this time is certainly eyebrow-raising – a Famiboards poster has claimed that a remaster of Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is headed to Nintendo Switch. The self-described hobby journalist (who in their own account has helped gather info for other credible leaks before). The leaker likes to stay out of the spotlight, but has apparently confirmed with three separate sources that a Thousand Year Door remaster is coming soon.


“I have been in touch with 3 sources with this. One of them redirected to me to the third source, who I hadn’t interacted with before so it was just me cold messaging them on LinkedIn. Because this third source wouldn’t acknowledge the release date I had heard from the previous two sources, I’ll just leave it as “coming soon.”

I informed both @NintendoPrime and @NateDrake about this privately. There’s one more person I have informed, but they wish to remain anonymous.”


As with any and all rumors of this sort, take it with many grains of salt, though a TTYD remaster is quite plausible considering it’s been almost 20 years since it came out. We’ll just have to see if this rumor holds water in the coming months.
