Mario Goes Metal Gear in New Video

Not many Wii U games are coming out this Fall, with Paper Mario: Color Splash being the one of two retail games coming out for the device this year. Nintendo dropped a new gameplay video this morning revealing a stealth section in the game. In this video titled “Rescue V: Episode 3,” Mario is guided by a blue toad to infiltrate an enemy base. We see a neat reference to the Metal Gear series with a toad hiding under a box and the enemy base itself looks like an environment out of Metal Gear Solid 1.

Paper Mario: Color Splash still looks rather gorgeous with its bright colors and cardboard aesthetics. Color Splash is due for release on October 7 for Wii U.
