Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door Remake is now available for Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Switch owners are in for a treat as the remake of the 2004 GameCube classic Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is now available. This is not for the long-awaited Switch 2, but for the current Switch model. Interestingly, data miners have found 4K code in the new Thousand Year Door, prompting speculation about possible backwards compatibility or 4K hardware capabilities of the upcoming Switch 2.

Regardless of these speculations, the remake stands as a fantastic game in its own right, full of witty writing and engaging combat, reminiscent of the original GameCube version from 2004. This game offers a unique role-playing experience with loved ones Mario characters, which was a nice surprise back in the day.

While there's a certain cynicism about publishers exploiting older gamers' nostalgia by revisiting retro titles, this remake's visual upgrades and quality-of-life features make it a welcome addition to modern consoles . It not only makes these classic experiences easily accessible, but also introduces them to new generations of players.

However, it's important to differentiate between thoughtful remakes and lazy ports. For example, the recent Metal Gear Solid Master Collection, which was essentially a casual pack of ROMs, left a lot to be desired. But Nintendo seems to be on the right track with their recent remakes, preserving gaming history and doing justice to these classic games.

As a fan of the original, I'm personally excited to play Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door once again, 20 years after its initial release. I hope my reflexes are still sharp enough for these time-based battle button presses.
