Ep 011 - Miyamoto, Back Off

With Miyamoto having Paper Mario under full house arrest, we talk why he should let his "Pikachu evolve" so to say. We also discuss some predictable Switch rumours and Eric goes all Negative Nancy on a couple trailers that dropped. Last of all, Nat doesn't know what hit her in the Toads House Quiz, when Eric lays down some Mario Bro's 3 questions.

Paper Mario: Color Splash producer talks about the lack of returning NPCs with game informer. The magazine started out by asking why old NPCs from the early Paper Mario games haven’t returned.

“Mario is not an IP that I created. From the position of someone borrowing the IP, I think it’s only natural to show respect to the person who created it, and let that feeling of respect guide us. When Miyamoto-san, the father of Mario, asks us, ‘Could you make a game with only characters from the Mario family?’ I think it’s only natural for us to give it our best shot. In other words, we are not currently thinking about returning to old NPCs.

Incidentally, I do think Color Splash may have proven that we can still make a game entertaining, even if our original characters don’t appear as NPCs. And with that belief, we will keep on continuing to do our best.”

Game informer pushed there luck a bit further and asked “if they woulkd consider bringing back companions.

“so if we get the chance to continue the series, I think we’ll want to create a Paper Mario with a different system.”
