Paper Mario: Lost in Time, or in Japan, Paper Mario 5, or in Korea, Paper Mario's Time Machine, is the fifth installment in the Paper Mario Series, and will be for Wii U. No release date has been comfirmed yet. It will mark the return of partners and the old style of battling, which hasn't been in a Paper Mario game since 2004's Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.
The game is played like the first two games, and will take place in different time periods, and different partners will be from different times. It will also use features from the Wii U Gamepad to effect gameplay.
Mario is enjoying his day off in his home, until Bowser bursts into the window with Peach in his Time Machine. He makes a barrier, and the only thing that can get through the barrier into Bowser's Castle, is the Seven Time Pieces from different periods of time. Mario rushes to Toad Town where he finds E. Gadd, and uses his time machine to travel through time. E. Gadd gives Mario a Time Map which show the Time Pieces. He jumps into the time machine and the adventure unfolds...
Prolouge: The Battle of Toad Town
Mario arrives in 1654, in the Mushroom Kingdom War with the Koopa I. All of the toads are running and screaming, as Koopa I bombs Toad Town. He laughs and bombs away. A young goomba general from the Mushroom Army arrives and warns Mario of danger. He tells him to follow him. Mario should follow him to a small, underground base. This goomba's name is General Goom. He tells the army to attack Koopa I. Two koopas rush down to invade the base, but Mario attacks. This becomes the tutorial. General Goom hands Mario the hammer. He teaches him how to fight. He then sees Mario's true strength, and says he has offically been drafted to his army. [Joins the party] His ability is to tell Mario about where he is. The duo take off to invade Koopa Fort, now Bowser's Castle. As soon as they start, Koopa I arrives to attack the base. Instead, he sees Mario and gets very angry. The first boss battle has started.
