New Paper Mario coming to Wii U?

A new, as yet unannounced, New Paper Mario is coming to Wii U, according to sources.

A fresh report suggests that a new entry in the Paper Mario series will be released for the Wii U, as it is currently in development at Intelligent Systems.

Two Nintendo Life contributors – Liam Robertson and Emily Rogers – who have amazing track records when it comes to accurately reporting unannounced Nintendo projects, say the game will be announced later this year.

The information is actually based on “five different sources”, although these sources are unnamed and it is unclear whether they are from Nintendo or the developer directly.

The game is reportedly being “localised and tested”, which may well mean an announcement and release is imminent.

Of course, Nintendo has yet to officially confirm whether a new Paper Mario game is in development for Wii U.

The last Paper Mario title was Paper Mario: Sticker Star for the Nintendo 3DS back in November 2012.

However, characters from the Paper Mario series have since appeared in the recent Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam.

Intelligent Systems, the developer behind the Paper Mario series, just finished working on Fire Emblem Fates, the follow-up to the 3DS strategy game Fire Emblem: Awakening.
