Super Paper Mario coming to Wii this April

Ever since Wii was announced, last bastion GameCube games have been dropping like flies to the newer console. Super Paper Mario is the latest game to suffer the same fate as the recent issue of Nintendo Power confirms via Codename Revolution.

The game, expected this April, will use the Wiimote side-style with the directional pad for platforming, the "2" button for jumping and "A" button to switch from 2D to 3D visuals. Graphics were said to have received an upgrade since the game's unveiling at E3 last year, and the title is expected to make "interesting use" of the Wiimote.

If you didn't see the transition from GC to Wii coming (as IGN alluded to back in September), you've been drinking way too much Nintendo Kool-Aid. Sure, it's tasty. But sometimes it has a bitter aftertaste.
