Paper Mario: Sticker Star trailer features the word 'nyarglebargle' and a screen-filling goat

Paper Mario: Sticker Star may well have featured in the 3DS sizzle reel from Nintendo Direct yesterday, but this full standalone trailer released afterwards is certainly worthy of a look in its own right. For starters, it uses the word 'Nyarglebargle', which doesn't get as much use as it probably ought. It also features a screen-filling goat, which we admit, we definitely did not expect to see. Observe:

We also particularly enjoyed the new arrangement of the classic Mario soundtrack, with groovy double bass and 'brush' snare taps complementing an enjoyable modulation through the familiar overworld theme. We know you were thinking the same thing. Suffice to say, as trailers go, this is a good 'un. And we're even more excited for the game now, which is due to launch on November 11 in the US, with Japan and Europe following on December 6 and 7 respectively.

    This game just keeps better everytime I see it. Nice to see that Wiggler from the beta is still there, snoring to say the least. 0:15 THAT F*CKING FACE MARIO MAKES, LOL They made Mario do that expression that's similar to what doopliss from Thousand year door did when you got his name right, NICE

    Heeeeeey...wait, since when was there a proper release date? Must've missed that. Now I'm suddenly looking forward to December, lawls. This trailer did a lot to ease my concerns for this game (OMG GOATS!) I just hope, what with the overworld map format, there are plenty of "levels" and a few larger revisitable places. Because with linear levels I find there's not a lot of point revisiting them. Basically I'm just talking about towns really.

    There are allot of levels, but the things is, they will require major exploration to get through them, much like Super Paper Mario. Some of which have secret exits, as far as towns go however i think theres only the starting town, which you WILL be going back to for items at the shop and to turn 3D models into stickers, but who knows, there might be more. and its November, not december

    Ah, well that's good to know. Super Paper Mario was a pretty incredible platformer that actually tried to break your perceptions by making it more than just go left-to-right fare. I have to admit it was the only one I played until recently. I downloaded the original on Wii last week to see what the fuss what about and I'm having a blast with it so far. If Sticker Star is "formatted" like Super Paper Mario but with the solid turn-based battles of the originals, well, that's all I could ever ask for. And being able to buy stickers alleviates any usage complaints for sure! Oh, and the EU release date applies for me, so December's right. Enjoy the one-month head start :D

    Yeah, this game is basically mixing the originals and Super PM while also have a major personality of it's own and it's own gameplay mechanic. Glad to see you enjoyed them, this games gonna rock!

    A goat? I'm pretty sure that isn't the Greatest Of All Time. (Most of you will understand that.)
