E3 2016: Nintendo announces Paper Mario: Color Splash release date, new amiibo, and more


Jason Clement

Despite Nintendo's main focus on The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild at this year's E3, the company opened up today about a few more of their plans for the Fall.

 

Namely, a release date for Paper Mario: Color Splash of October 7 (on Wii U). At the moment, this is the only confirmed first-party Wii U release for the rest of this year. Also, Nintendo will be demoing more of the game during the Treehouse Live segment tomorrow.

 

Secondly, a new Mario Party game called Mario Party Star Rush will be coming to the 3DS, and it will be releasing on November 7. More info to come on it in tomorrow's Treehouse Live segment.

 

Finally, a second wave of the Super Mario lineup of amiibo was announced, featuring Waluigi, Daisy, and Boo for the first time, and also new poses for Rosalina, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, and Wario. These amiibo will be releasing on November 4.

It's unknown if these announcements represent the entirety of the rest of the year's announcements as far as 2016 releases go or if more unannounced first-party titles will be releasing before year's end. We'll have to wait and see what future Nintendo Directs have in store.
