Nintendo of America has revealed that the paper adventures of Mario will be coming to the NSO + Expansion Pack on December 12. Making the announcement on Twitter, Nintendo states that the original Paper Mario game, Paper Mario 64, will soon be playable again through the Switch.
The spiritual successor to the cult classic Super Mario RPG on the SNES, the original Paper Mario game launched in 2000 and kickstarted the popular series. The paper-thin version of Mario is once again, on a mission to stop Bowser from doing evil things. In this game, Bowser has magicked Peach’s Castle into the sky with the help of Kammy Koopa, so now Mario needs to put an end to the chaos.
Paper Mario will be added to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription service on December 12. Anyone with that subscription level can download and play the game beginning next Sunday.
