I think I heard somewhere that they didn't show any partners in the previews because they didn't want to "spoil" anything.

Which, coincidentally, is always the perfect cop-out for not having anything come up with any ideas worth showing yet.

I'm a bit worried that they've changed the battle formula too much... I'll definitely still get the game, but I just hope that whatever's being done in the game works well.

Indeed, the whole "sticker" component has me a tad worried. On an interesting note, PM3DS probably wouldn't be a turn-based RPG had its highly experimental predecessor, Super Paper Mario, gotten a better critical reception:

Quote from: Nintendo Power, vol. 215, May 2007
Nintendo Power:
Does this platform-heavy approach represent a new direction for the series, or do you think you'll go back to the purer RPG with the next installment?

Ryota Kawade:
I still don't know whether the next Paper Mario will maintain this style, or if it's going back to the previous RPG format. It might even be a completely different type of game altogether. We do, however, always feel that we want a challenge and to take on new things.

Kensuke Tanabe:
I don't think we will ever go back to the exact same game style as before. As Mr. Kawade just said, I also would like to look for another new and different style.

Did anyone else feel like the game doesn't look too far into development based on the E3 trailer? It just felt like a lot was missing... And yet Nintendo said the game'll be out this year.

I must have missed that.  I thought SM3DS would be out this year, but not Paper Mario 3DS.  Are they both dated or at least listed as fall, holiday, or something like that?

I was mistaken. For some reason I thought Reggie said that the game titles shown at the very end of the E3 presentation would be available this year, but I just checked and it isn't. On Nintendo's E3 website it just says "TBA" under release date.

I think I'm over Paper Mario.  The first one was fine, the second one was phenomenal and the third got to be kind of a chore after a while.  I'd like to see some fresh art and story direction for Mario's next RPG.  I've always wished the Mario RPGs (after the original that is) had a visual style more akin to the 3D Mario platformers.  The thought of a Mario RPG that looks like Galaxy or SM3DS is a very appealing one.

Even if it turns out as a complete abortion of a game, PM3DS will be vastly superior to Super Paper Mario. Just sayin'.

Super Paper Mario was just fine, thank you very much.

Super Paper Mario was a good experiment, but maybe this game will be more like the first two. (Judging from the battle screens, it already is a little bit..)

SPM was a good game, but most of the dialoge was laughable, and it just seemed like a carbon copy of the story from PM2 (ie:*story spoilers* Grodus's plan to take over the world backfires when the Shadow Queen doesn't listen to him. Count Bleck's plan to take over the world backfires when Dimentio doesn't listen to him.. The Pure Hearts being very similar to the Crystal Stars: pointing the way toward one another)

Kinopio is the ultimate video game character! Who else can drive a kart, host parties, play tennis, give good advice and items, and is almost always happy??

Well, it's not like the rest of Nintendo's games are ever a wellspring of plot creativity from one entry to the next.

I actually rather liked the dialogue in SPM.  My beef is mostly with the gameplay, which, while passable, doesn't really hold a candle to TTYD's.

One thing I didn't like in that game was locations. Flipside and Flopside just weren't that intersting to me, especially when compared to the excellent hubs Rogueport and Toad Town. Those two hubs were actually fun to explore. In SPM it felt like a chore to have to navigate the hub.
