Paper Mario: Piece de Resistance (placeholder title) is a Paper Mario collab being developed by Pixelburst Gaming, Plasma Productions, Blender Maximum, and Pyro Enterprises. It features Mario embarking on a new journey across the world in an attempt to stop a mysterious new villain from silencing all of existence forever.


Act 1

Act 2




Soundswapping is a technique Mario learns early in the adventure, which is somewhat akin to the paperization and cutting techniques in Sticker Star and Color Splash respectively. Utilizing Soundswapping, Mario is capable of recording sounds in the environment and pasting them into other areas. For example, one could record the sound of a bell ringing in one area, then utilize it in another area in order to transfer the sound elsewhere. Sounds are also capable of applying a property to the object they're pasted on as well, such as using the sound of a crackling fire to set an object ablaze.

Sounds that can be Soundswapped with display a small blue soundwave icon next to Mario's HUD when they play. The environment can be examined by pressing the Y button, letting Mario track the sound's source.

Recorded sounds can also be sped up or slowed down before they are pasted into the environment, causing the playback to be affected accordingly.

Tempo/Speed Change

Three of Mario's partners are dedicated to changing the speed or tempo of the game in battles and the overworld. These partners are called Moderato, Andante, and Allegro (all placeholder names). Speed changing will also affect the world's gravity. Moderato keeps the world normal, Andante slows down and forces low gravity onto objects, and Allegro has high speed and gravity. These three partners stay on Mario's hat from the entirety of the game and can be switched out at any moment, but Andante and Allegro are not available to use until they are unlocked.



Name Summary Abilities Description
The humble yet legendary plumber responsible for saving the Mushroom Kingdom again and again!
He used to be called Jumpman, so there's no reason why Mario shouldn't jump for an attack. Jump attacks strike from above, and you usually have to time the attack to land on the enemy's head. Jump on a spiked enemy, and you'll take damage.
Mario's hammer is also an invaluable weapon, and is used constantly in the overworld and in battle. Hammer attacks strike from the side, and have slightly higher power than jumps. If an enemy is flying or levitating, they'll dodge the attack.


Name Summary Abilities Description
Moderato (placeholder)
A blue orb who helps Mario soundswap at a moderate pace while sleeping on his hat.
Andante (placeholder)
A yellow orb who drops the bass in his beats and pulls the gravity down. He also makes everything move more slowly, including Mario. He empowers Mario's Jump, but weakens his Hammer.
Allegro (placeholder)
The last orb, a trebled young girl colored red, with enough energy to speed up time. Her high gravity abilities can change up the game a bit as well. She makes Mario's Hammer stronger in exchange for a less powerful Jump.

A female Boomboxer wearing 80's-styled clothing
A female Duplighost with a hula dancer-like design
An Electrokoopa resembling a DJ
A Bzzap partner
A Pidgit peddler
