It's been a long time since the last true Paper Mario game, but the wait is finally over as Paper Mario: Color Splash hits stores for the Wii U on October 7th.

Paper Mario, along with his new paint hammer and a plethora of new friends, must splash paint on anything and everything he can find in order to save the day.
