    What makes me worried is why in some glimpses we see partners, yet others we don't? Like isn't it quite a bit of effort to remove the partner from the game's programming just so it doesn't spoil?

    Don't worry.

    It's a Paper Mario game. It's not the same without partners.

    I just hope this game has the same kind of quirky dialogue that the last three had.

    Peach, Bowser, and Mr. L...er, Luigi say hi!

    Tippi as well. ;_;

    Pixls weren't partners, and Alternate playable characters aren't either.

    Excited to see the Chomp work as I just randomly thought up the other day. Simple, could possibly replace the Koopa partner, given how it's used.

    I'm going to take an educated guess and say based on the fact this crown is 3D it would represent either a role similar to Tippi's or even Stuffwell, if you want to take an out-of-series reference, where it's like an ally but not a partner. And if so, that might give it the grounds to give Mario his paper-esque abilities, such as cutting pieces out of the battles or backgrounds or the fan. Basically, assume the crown is a Tippi but instead of taking the place of Mario's "guide" function the crown is his paper manipulation tool.

    The word partner is defined as "A person who takes part in an undertaking with another or others".

    Yes, they are partners.

    Just partners that are playable outside of battle and take a much more active role in the plot. In the end, they still help Mario in his endeavors.

    Super Paper Mario is different in terms of gameplay and plot from the first two. So why should the concept of partner characters be the same?

    Because partners are clearly defined within the realm of the Paper Mario series. Yes, Super Paper Mario is indeed different from the other two games in terms of gameplay and plot. So it would stand within reason that the fact it has no partners may exist. Within the series partners are very clearly the characters who follow behind Mario and aid him inside and out of battle. If anything you can say that the Pixls emulate partners at best because they in no way show character of the same lines as partners from the previous games and while, yes, they aid Mario in and out of battle, they also serve as tools or abilities for Mario, such as Slim, Cudge or Dashell.

    And just the same it is unreasonable to call Bowser, Peach or Luigi a parnet because at no point in the game do they accompany Mario. You are only playing as them, hence their role as playable main characters.

    Regardless of the textbook definition of what a partner is there is a clearly established set of rules, for lack of better word, by which a partner in the series must follow to exist. Neither Pixls nor the 3 other main characters in SPM follow these rules to be called partners.

    Hopefully we can get some more news on Paper Mario 3DS soon. I hope we don't have to wait until E3 2012 for some news. This thread can't last that long.

    Well, I had no idea what the Paper Mario series was about, until I downloaded it last week from the Wii Shop. And my god, I love it. <3 The gameplay's awesome, the visuals are awesome, the music is awesome, and the humor is pretty hilarious at times. :P Definitely going to buy TTYD sometime later. I think I'll skip Super Paper Mario, however.

    TTYD is pretty hard to find, but it's better in every single way, I'd highly recommend getting it no matter the cost.

    I skipped the Wii entry as well because most people said it was nothing like the other 2, it lacked the charm apparently.

    Why did I not know about this thread earlier!? D:

    @Manhattan: You should DEFINITELY pick up TTYD, thats my favorite one in the series. I would not pass up Super Paper Mario though, while the gameplay is substantially different from the prior two it is still a terrific game, though slightly more fast-paced.

    @Sabconth: People said that it was very different and complained because Super Paper Mario is turn-based, and more complicated. It is still VERY fun, and definitely worth playing.

    Yeah, apparently, the battles are completely different, and I love the battle style in Paper Mario. D: And no worries, I'll just buy me a used copy from GameStop's site. :P

    And the battle style being different isn't my only problem with the game, it's also the lack of unique partners. Looks like you get a bunch of pixie characters as partners in Super Paper Mario, which don't seem very different from one another, unlike the partners you get in Paper Mario. I'm sure the game isn't as bad as I think it is, but to be honest, I'm not really interested in it.

    @Manhattan: Yes the combat system is not turn based like the other two making it considerably easier, but the combat system is still very fun and enjoyable. Also the Pixl (as they call them) are just like different partners, and each have a unique ability, though they (for the most part) are useless in combat.

    Heh, the turn based, level-upping aspect in Paper Mario really reminded me of Pokemon, so as expected, it instantly appealed to me. :P And the Pixls being useless in combat kinda sucks... D:

    What? Don't skip SPM. It has the best story out of them all so far...

    ...You'll be shocked at how Dark a Mario game can get...

    SPM has a much darker storyline than the previous two, though I prefer the previous two's gameplay over SPM. I liked the RPG aspect of first two, I just disliked how it was switched to a side-scrolling platformer.

    Same for me. I'd like to at least try SPM, but buying it...? Eh, I think I'll pass.

    SPM I enjoyed, not as much as I did with TTYD, but I did actually like it more than the original PM in terms of storyline.

    Um...Koops had a Green Shell, not a blue one.

    You're confusing gameplay terms with literary terms. They are not partners.

    I'd be inclined to disagree there, to a point. The entire series is filled with its own cliches, but just because SPM was a wall of text does not mean it was better constructed storywise.

    ...You'll be shocked at how Dark a Mario game can get...
    This I agree with. But really you need to read between the lines to even get all of this, too.

    SPM was actually my first game in the series, and without prior knowledge, it was decent.
    However, after beating the first two, it was a little disheartening to see all that it could've been.

    I'd recommend SPM as a filler, if you get bored before the 3DS game, but definitely get TTYD, if you loved the original, then you'll adore it.
    It's one of my favourite games ever & the first playthrough is magical~
