A couple of hours ago a video was posted on YouTube showing a Nintendo 3DS booting up Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. Shortly after the video was posted it was then removed and no other comment has been seen from the original poster of the video.

Though the video was removed it was not before the gif above was captured of the video. On top of the video the original poster of the video also put the following image in the comments showing a battle scene with Mario and Yoshi where we can also see the battle HUD has been moved to the lower screen.

Paper Mario TTYD 3DS

Could Paper Mario’s adventure in Rogueport be headed to handhelds?

Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door was originally released in 2004 for the Nintendo Gamecube and is regarded by many fans as the best game in the franchise. We know that the new 3DS is capable of playing Wii games so a port like this could be a possibility, but with evidence from the recent Smash Bros Rayman DLC rumor we should take this with a grain of salt until confirmed.

Stay tuned to TechRaptor for more information in the future.

What do you think of this leak? Is it too good to be true? Should the Paper Mario franchise be moving on?

I have been playing all kinds of games for as long as I can remember with a particular interest in action adventure and platforming titles. While I am primarily an Xbox gamer I also spend a fair bit of time on the PS4 and on my PC in VR.
