- Fan Nickname:
- Market-Based Title: The game is known as Mario Story in Japanese.
- Name's the Same:
- What Could Have Been: Paper Mario was originally planned out as a sequel to Super Mario RPG (the working title was Super Mario RPG 2), but Square (known now as Square Enix) and Nintendo had had a falling out a few years prior when Square jumped ship to Sony with Final Fantasy VII (it was over Nintendo's refusal to implement the CD format for the N64, Nintendo took it badly and more or less defended the decision to stick with cartridges), so the name had to be changed. A true sequel to Super Mario RPG has never been produced.
