Why does Nintendo refuse to produce the Paper Mario game that so many fans want to see? Like literally: Why? This question honestly started to kind of haunt me. I ended up spending way too much time thinking about why Nintendo refuses to produce the Paper Mario game that so many people want to see, and I believe I finally found the answer, or at least I have a theory. So today, we are going to explore this question. We are going to take a look at a couple of Nintendo franchises and how they evolved , we will discuss a couple of brilliant design decisions that nintendo recently made as well as chatter about a couple of incredible dumb ones, we will find out how all of this is connected and why it is the reason for many of nintendo’s more recent design desasters. But most importantly of all, we are going to find out why the classic Paper Mario format had to die.
