Did You Know Mario is Moving?
Mario Declares the World is Flat,
Decides on a Move to the Flattest City
To commemorate Columbus Day, video game icon Mario(TM) has taken a
contrarian position by declaring that the world is flat. As a result,
Mario has stated his intention to relocate to the country's flattest
metropolitan area, Houston. Though Mario readily admits that he is
going against hundreds of years of scientific fact, he says all the
evidence for the Earth's flatness is found in his new adventure game,
Paper Mario(TM): The Thousand-Year Door.
The game, launching today exclusively for Nintendo GameCube(TM),
showcases the ability of Mario and his friends to manipulate their
flat, 2-D bodies in dynamic ways. Mario can roll himself into a tube
and bounce, slip sideways through narrow passages or fold himself into
a paper airplane and soar away. The comical role-playing game sets him
on a search for Princess Peach and treasure.
