On shelves for Wii U Oct. 7

Paper Mario: Color Splash launches Oct. 7 on Wii U, Nintendo announced today in a gameplay demonstration during its E3 livestream.

The lighthearted action adventure RPG puts a Paint Hammer in Paper Mario's hands to let him re-color Prism Island. The game blends elements of platforming, turn-based combat and puzzle-solving.

The screen of the Wii U controller can be used for a new "cut out" feature that alters the environment and helps Mario negotiate platform puzzles.

Paper Mario: Color Splash is the fifth installment in the Paper Mario RPG series. Watch Polygon's hands-on demo below.
