According to a Nintendo insider, a new Paper Mario game could be in the works for the Wii U.

Emily Rogers revealed on Twitter that five sources have confirmed that Intelligent Systems, developers of Paper Mario, Fire Emblem, and Advance Wars, is developing a new Paper Mario title for the Wii U. Apparently the game is currently in the stage of localisation and testing.

Intelligent Systems has been the developer behind many Paper Mario games, including the original for Nintendo 64 in 2001, to the latest Paper Mario: Sticker Star for the Nintendo 3DS in 2012.

The latest game to include Paper Mario was the recent 3DS release of Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, a welcome return of the Paper Mario characters. Could this mark the return of the Paper Mario series however? We’re unsure.

Chances are we’ll hear whether this is true in Nintendo’s next Direct Broadcast which is likely to be saved for E3 2016.
