The 3DS iteration of Paper Mario will be available in stores and for download this year.

Paper Mario Sticker Star will be released for Nintendo 3DS this holiday and will be available from both stores and through the eShop.

The featured stickers are scattered throughout the game world and can be peeled off and collected. The primary purpose of the stickers is for attacks in the turn-based battles. Finding a hammer sticker gives you a hammer to use for a turn, while a fire flower will let you throw fireballs for a limited time. Stickers are also used to uncover hidden areas and helpful items that help you to progress. 

The graphical style is very much the same as the previous game in the series, and it looks like it's possible to change the viewing angle to find hidden areas in much the same way.

I'm sold.  I've been waiting years for this.  Shut up and take my money, Nintendo....wait...You already did.

Did not expect to see this in-conference, but so glad it happened.  Now Pikmin + Paper Mario + Luigi's Mansion 2 = My Holiday (assuming there are no delays).

Mario & Luigi has been my preferred Mario RPG series, but I'm really liking the direction they have taken with this new Paper Mario. Let's hope the sticker premise comes to fruition over the course of the final game.

I had a hard time getting into Super Paper Mario (namely due to the excessive dialog) and I never got a chance to play The Thousand Year Door (I kept putting it off until I had a hard time tracking down a decent copy then I gave up) so I may pick this up. Sticker Star is a pretty lame title but I'll live. I loved the original Paper Mario.

You have to track down Thousand Year Door.  It is one of the best games ever made, period.  If you're patient, I would be surprised if it isn't in the Wii U's virtual console.
