Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door’s Switch Release Date Has Been Revealed

The doors are opening soon!

Although it’s technically ticked over to March 11th locally, Nintendo has dropped a load of new announcements in celebration of March 10’s “Mar10 Day,” including brand-new LEGO Super Mario sets, release dates for some exciting upcoming games and even a new Super Mario Bros. movie.

One of those new announcements is the reveal that the new Switch version of the classic Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door finally has a release date. The re-release of the GameCube’s beloved entry in the Paper Mario series will be launching on May 23rd, 2024.

The game is available to pre-order digitally right now on the Nintendo Switch eShop and will hopefully be available to pre-order at local retailers soon.

You can see the announcement of these, along with the other Mar10 Day reveals, in the video below:

As you can also see in the above video, a brand-new Super Mario Bros. Movie is in the works, once again in collaboration between Nintendo and Illumination. It’ll be a bit of wait, with the film pegged for a 2026 release, but you can find out more about it right here.
