Paper Mario: Arts & Crafts is a new Paper Mario game for the Wii U
PM Arts&Crafts - Title


The story is divided into 8 chapters (11 if you include the bonuses and prologue) but here I'll show the basic.

Directly after Sticker Star, Mario went back home and wanted to rest after all the adventuring, but that wouldn't happen, Bowser discovered a special artifact that turned the 2D paper characters into 3D cardboard characters, but the Star Guardians won't let that happen, so he scattered them across the world, now Mario has to save them and beat Bowser. (Yes, this is pretty much the original Paper Mario)


The overworld gameplay is the same as any other paper Mario RPG, but the battles are now slightly similar to Mario & Luigi, you and your partner are side by side and you can perform Team Strikes, which are basically Bros. Attacks, except each of the 8 partners has at least 3 unique Team Strikes, so there's a lot to do in battle. This game also brings back Giant Battles in the form of "Papercraft Battles" in which the Star Guardians help Mario defeat a big enemy by turning him into a giant cardboard statue thing.
