Not only was Super Paper Mario received positively by many critics and gaming publications but the game managed to reach over 4.3 million copies in sales on the Wii console. Despite, not being as popular as the likes of Super Mario Galaxy 1 & 2 it should be noted that Super Paper Mario was stood out more considering the fact that game had new antagonists. Both Dimentio and Count Bleck interesting villains and the story for Super Paper Mario had a little more depth in comparison to older entries that utilize the same formula with Bowser being the main antagonist. In fact, making Boswer a playable character along with Mario, Peach and Luigi was also pretty cool because it felt somewhat similar to the Super Mario RPG title from 1996.
