The Switch Online Expansion Pass is expanding just a bit more before the holidays.

Nintendo have revealed the first of the promised second group of N64 titles, the original Paper Mario, will release on December 10. A brief trailer is below:

The August 2000 release (in North America) sees Mario and a cast of helper characters trying to rebuild the Star Rod in order to rescue the perpetually kidnapped Princess Peach.

I don't understand any of that...


Of all the games shown for the N64 online expansion, this is the one I most wanted because it's the N64 game I've had the highest urge to go back and replay. Been thinking about doing that for a couple years now. Yet, it's not a $40 more dollar urge when I can just pop it into my N64. There's a lot about the game I remember but also  a lot that's faded and seeing that trailer was a lot "oh yeah!"s as it refreshed my memory. Really increasing the urge to replay it now.

This game alone makes the N64 Switch Online virtual console offerings a delight for me. I played it when I was in the hospital for a couple days as a kid and it's earned forever a place in my heart because of that.
