If you have an iOS device you play games on regularly, you’ve probably heard of Paper Monsters. It’s a charming platformer done in almost Paper Mario style. The game is making the leap to Wii U this year with brand new levels, more power ups, and a full graphical overhaul that features new lighting and animations. Mobot Studios is excited to be bringing their game to the Wii U, so check out the trailer and let us know what you think!

Here’s a full list of what’s changing for the new Wii U release:

  • New levels, redesigned levels, space levels. Did we mention new levels?
  • More power ups, more bad guys, more of everything
  • Full graphics overhaul; including new lighting, animations, effects, and more
  • Recut and completely rebooted for Wii U
  • Coming this winter from Mobot Studios

    Looks like a pretty solid platformer. I’ll definitely pick it up after Gina Sisters.

    Awesome video game!

    Thank you, @overlordror:disqus!


  • Sami Rautio

    Wish that Mariokart 8 SSb and other superb titles would come faster 🙂 but every game console owner should own dual play tv or pc monitor it’s amazing feature exmaple Mariokart doubleadash 🙂

    • Lotta work to merely not have to share the screen

  • Andrew Gonzalez

    When’s the release date?

  • Looks cute :3

    • Ducked

      It’s like a mix of LittleBigPlanet and Keeping Up With The Kardashians!

      • o.o not sure what to make of that

      • Laud

        I can see that.

      • Moreck

        …so you have to craft a trio of vapid celebrities? xD

        • Ducked

          yep 😀

    • nin-10-doughfan

      you got that right!

    • The Clockwork Being

      It sure does!

  • Thrash13

    This looks alright, but I’m more excited about their other game (Knites and the Ghost Lights). That one looks very promising.

  • Simon Stevens

    I’ll buy 🙂

  • Ducked

    Love the art style! The more indie games, the better!

  • Elitepwnsface

    Just what we need on the Wii U…

  • I’ve got that on android… Wouldn’t say it was anything to get excited about but looked nice and my niece (6 years old at the time) liked it. A slow and easy platformer that’s really for kids.

    Nice graphic style!!!

  • Nathan Verbois

    Looks like fun.

  • Assassinated23

    Looks like Tearaway but with slightly less charm.

    This looks genuinely good. The indy support of the Wii U has been both impressive and unwavering.

  • Just reinstalled on my phone and played through the few levels to refresh my memory. It’s a good looking game, even on my mobile, although it does makes my phone red hot.

    Gameplay wise it doesn’t offer anything you haven’t seen many times before. You walk around (slowly) and jump on baddies heads. There are a number of things to try and collect, including 3 hidden golden paper clips per level. There’s a nice little nod to SMB2 when beating a boss. And some odd little things to break up the monotony of the levels, like briefly controlling a torpedo firing sub.

    The action plays at a very slow speed. The speed makes some sense when dealing with touch screen controls. Of course the Wii U has buttons, d pad and joysticks.

    The Wii U version is, of course, modified with redesigned levels, all new levels, new baddies and new power ups. But what it really needs is a Mario style run button.

    I don’t want to be negative. They could well have done a great job with the Wii U version. But I’m not going to be buying it to find out.

    Pretty as it is, it’s probably better suited for young kids. My niece did like this game and if you have young kids this might turn out to be a good introduction to Mario style platform games.
