Intelligent Systems rumored to be finishing up new Paper Mario for Wii U
Emily Rogers and Nintendo Life's Liam Robertson are known for releasing accurate leaks and rumors when it comes to Nintendo. In fact, the latter confirmed the existence of a free to play amiibo game an entire month earlier than its announcement in Japan. If their reputation for accurate rumors holds, then Nintendo fans who are still pining for more Paper Mario after the release of Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam need not wait long for the next installment of the paper cutout plumber.
According to a Twitter post by Rogers, 5 sources have told her that a new Paper Mario game will be announced later this year for the Wii U. The game is also rumored to be developed by Intelligent Systems, the developers known best for Fire Emblem, 2D Metroid games, and the WarioWare series. But that's not even the best part!
The game is currently being localized and tested.— Emily Rogers (@Emi1yRogers) January 22, 2016
You didn't read that wrong. The game is supposedly already in the localization and testing stage. If this part of the rumor is true, then that would mean Paper Mario for the Wii U's announcement could be just around the corner!
Remember, despite Emily Rogers' history of accurate rumors, this is -in the end - still just a rumor. Still, with Nintendo's stocks rising, it could be that investors already know about a much larger hidden lineup coming this year. I'd hate to be the one to spread false rumors, but that's something I'm betting on right now.
