On the day of the annual Sticker Fest, Bowser decides to pull a prank and scatters six Royal Stickers across the land. To retrieve these mysterious, magical stickers, which are now stuck onto Bowser and his underlings, Mario sets off on an adventure with Kersti, a sticker fairy, visiting prairies, deserts, forests, snowy mountains and volcanoes around the world.
Paper Mario: Sticker Star, known in Japan as Paper Mario: Super Seal (ペーパーマリオスーパーシール), is a role-playing video game developed by Intelligent Systems for Nintendo 3DS. It is the fourth installment of the Paper Mario series and is the first game in the series playable on a handheld console.
Like previous Paper Mario games, Paper Mario: Sticker Star uses a papercraft visual style that is heavily incorporated into its gameplay mechanics. Sticker Star introduces the use of stickers, which are littered throughout the game world and are used as items or power-ups, aiding the player in turn-based battles against enemies or in solving puzzles. The plot follows Mario's quest to gather the six Royal Stickers that were scattered by Bowser.
