Paper Mario Sticker Star detailed

Innovative combat coming to 3DS game. 

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.
