Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Not my (paper)cup of tea, but looks good for what it is.

Also, this game seems to be the go-to for Nintendo the day after a big Sony thing haha. UE5 on PS5? Announce Paper Mario! PS5 console reveal and games blowout? Drop the second Paper Mario trailer! 

Either you're being sarcastic or seeing things that aren't there.  Remember correlation does not imply causation.

I wasn't being entirely serious, just that it's funny that this is the second time they've dropped a trailer for this game the day after a big PS5 showing.

The added footage highlights an added detail to battle as your permanent partner gives you added abilities like the summon like attack with the Turtle this ability is also seen in the other video where Mario summons a Water Dragon against a boss which happens to be a Phoenix. Seeing as you fight the Turtle before you gain it I'm guessing the Phoenix is also a summon ability when defeated, one of these summons is shown to be used outside of battle so the others might be used in such a manner as well also shown is the field skill Mario uses is also used in battle for certain attacks.

– Intelligent Systems dev Naohiko Aoyama asked for a battle system in which the enemies surround Mario to attack from all sides
– This is how the team first started thinking about battles for The Origami King
– Tanabe had an idea come to him one day while in the shower about a Rubik’s Cube
– This inspired him to add vertical rotations to the horizontal rotations and led to the slide mechanic
– Combat begins with players having a set number of turns in the planning phase to optimize their positioning
– The goal is to line enemies up in groups so that Mario can take them out efficiently
– Stomp attack hits enemies lined up in a row
– Hammer deals more concentrated damage to groups of enemies that are standing side-by-side and one row deep
– Can spend coins to purchase more time to think if you’re running low on time
– Toad friends can give you hints if you pay them
– Even if you blow it on your first attempt, you can still rearrange the stragglers once both you and the enemies have taken turns
– Each of the five streamers encasing Peach’s castle is guarded by a member of the Legion of Stationary
– The team initially wanted to use the same basic battle system in these boss encounters, but since you fight these bosses one at a time, you didn’t have anything to line up
– Because of this, the boss is in the center and Mario creates a route to the boss from the outside
– Bosses are scattered around the world and players can see the streamers far in the distance
– Story isn’t chapter-focused like past games
– Players can travel from region to region seamlessly in an open-world setup
– Huge maps to explore
– Nintendo designed the game so that “there is always something in the player’s field of vision to catch their attention,” according to Intelligent Systems director Masahiko Magaya
– Mario can drive a boot-shaped car around and pilot a boat
– Mario will also be aboard an airship, where he takes command of the ship’s defenses to fire rockets at incoming paper planes
– Lots of one-off activities and miscellaneous diversions in the game
– Mario will encounter a host of Toads who have been folded into different origami forms
– Hitting them with his hammer reverts them back to their normal form, then several things can happen
– They might return to Toad Town, restoring valuable services to the location, like selling items or opening the dock
– The Toads may also join Mario in battle, watching from the sidelines and helping when asked (and paid)
– Can go fishing
– Olivia is a constant companion throughout the adventure
– Other characters join and leave along the way
– The shuffling cast is a function of the story, so players aren’t deciding which allies to bring along

Would be a good way to boost this thread some, if we just ended up doing the latter : P
