Nintendo has announced that the classic Nintendo 64 RPG Paper Mario will be coming to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack service on December 10th. Developed by Intelligent Systems, the original Paper Mario debuted the series’ storybook aesthetic and trademark humor, and sees Mario embarking on an epic quest to save the seven Star Spirits after Bowser steals the powerful Star Rod.
