Paper Mario: Color Splash paints a new picture on Wii U this year

The Paper Mario series is getting a new entry this year, and it's coming to Wii U. Much like Splatoon, Nintendo's colorful twist on the competitive shooter genre, Paper Mario: Color Splash uses various colors of paint as its primary gameplay mechanic.

In the Nintendo Direct video that announced the title, Mario used paint to weaken his enemies before squishing them with a mallet. Beyond that however, no solid details were given. We've still got nine months left in the year though, so there's plenty of time for Nintendo to give us more info.
