Paper Mario: Color Splash launches on October 7th in the US and Europe (Australia gets it one day later), and the review embargo has finally been lifted. The previous entry, Sticker Star, got a bit of a lukewarm reception from fans, and many have been wondering how Color Splash compares. While it borrows many of its elements from Sticker Star, Color Splash is pulling in better review scores early on, and it currently sits at an average rating of 80/100 on Metacritic based on 25 positive reviews and 6 mixed reviews.

Reviewers are generally praising the game’s beautiful visuals, witty writing, and humor, but most agree that the battle system is lackluster. You can check out a round-up of reviews below:

Nintendo World Report — 9/10
Game Informer — 8.5 /10
Destructoid — 8.5 /10
God is a Geek — 8.5 /10

Nintendo Life — 8/10
