Mario and his pals may be paper-thin, but there’s nothing flimsy about the graphical overhaul in the Nintendo Switch remaster of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door.
When last week’s Nintendo Direct presentation ended with the welcome return of the GameCube classic, we all got a glimpse of just how bright, sharp, and crisp the remaster appears. It’s only when you compare the footage from the new trailer with the original game, however, that you can truly appreciate just how detailed the new version is.
GameXplain has uploaded a video comparing the footage from the new trailer with that of the 2004 original.
One striking new detail in the remaster is that Mario’s allies will now physically react to the events happening before them during dialogue scenes, instead of stoically standing around as they did in the original. For example, at the video’s 3:40 mark, you can see Goombella in distress as the Big Blooper appears.
Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door will launch on Nintendo Switch in 2024.
