Paper Mario: Sticker Star

Developer: Intelligent Systems

Platforms: Nintendo 3DS

Release Date: November 11, 2012 

The Paper Mario series has undergone some changes since it originated and the latest offering from Nintendo continues this trend by mixing the paper-thin world with a very unique RPG combat system that prioritizes item use rather than character development.

In many ways Sticker Star trains you to be an OCD collector in the best way possible. You'll spend way too long on a given level hunting the last of the hidden stickers because each and every one of them can be used in battle, and sometimes having that extra one or two can be the difference between life and death. It's cute, it's clever, and there's a lot more to the battle system than appears at first glance.
