Nintendo is bringing Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door to the Switch in 2024

The company is giving the 2004 RPG a fresh look with 'updated graphics.'


Nintendo is bringing another classic Mario RPG to the Switch. The company plans to release an updated version of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door on the console in 2024, 20 years after the original game debuted on the GameCube.

The game sees Mario and his pals searching for treasure behind the eponymous Thousand-Year Door. Mario will be able to turn his 2D body to squeeze through narrow passages and fold into a paper plane to cross large gaps.

Expect the upcoming re-release to feature "enhanced graphics" — it certainly looks pretty in the first trailer that Nintendo shared. The company is keeping other details under wraps for now, including whether there will be any other major changes in store. We'll learn more about this version of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door ahead of its arrival sometime next year.
