The 3DS's Paper Mario game has been named and detailed as Nintendo confirmed that it's coming out later this year.

Dubbed Paper Mario Sticker Star, the continuation of the self-referential strand of the Mario series introduces an innovative combat system fuelled by the titular stickers.

Stickers can be pulled off from the scenery and used by the player; a fan can be used to power a windmill, or a hammer will bash goombas.

Nintendo's 3DS offering is being explored in further detail in a conference in the early hours of Thursday morning - and we'll be bringing you all the news as it comes in.
