Gonintendo has some more information about Super Paper Mario.  These tidbits come from the most recent 1up podcast:

  • Game starts off like the rest of the Paper Mario series. You begin in a town with an Inn, shop, NPC’s…the regular Paper Mario fodder.
  • Stages are numbered 1-1, 1-2 just like the old Mario games
  • You cannot run or throw turtle shells at the beginning of the game. You learn these moves are you go along.
  • Classic characters appear, as well as remixed versions of some characters that we know from the past
  • The intro to the game is an FMV video

Just some new info–can’t wait till April 9 for this game.
