E3 2016: Paper Mario: Color Splash Screens & Art to Delight, Terrify Children
Betcha didn't think this game's art would be the one to incite nightmares, didja?

Despite not being featured on the show floor, Nintendo still brought us a bevy of media and information on the next console Paper Mario title, Paper Mario: Color Splash, including a release date! Along with this, we have a nice selection of new media, from colorful screenshots like this one:

...to a surprisingly large collection of paper- and cardboard-styled traditional Mario elements like this crinkly foil-faced gold coin:

...to this image that can only be described as "nightmare fuel" below:

I don't even... I don't know where to begin. I just don't. Even without the out of place and adult themes implied, this Shy Guy is still consuming the helpless Toad, and ensuring that I do not sleep tonight. Join me in my suffering.

Uh, and look for Paper Mario: Color Splash for Wii U on October 7 in both North America and Europe. In the meantime, play something a little happier, like Dark Souls III.
