Should Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door be remastered?

When it comes down to underrated gems from Nintendo’s GameCube era of the early to mid 00’s one of the few games that many people think about is Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door which was released back in 2004. Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door was the critically acclaimed sequel to the original Paper Mario game which appeared on the Nintendo 64 back in 2000 and people have had nothing but good things to say about it. The overall presentation of Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door looked impressive and it was arguably one of the best Mario related RPG titles that we have seen next to Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars from 1996. Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door introduced a new main antagonist in the form of Sir Grodus who the leader of a fictional Secret Society known as the X-Nauts; who pursued world domination by capturing the Crystal Stars in order to gain access to the Shadow Queen. Not only was the plot for Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door very creative but it also introduced a set of new characters that are hardly ever seen in any other Mario video game. It should be noted that Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door is about eighteen years old now and yet Nintendo has not remastered this game for Switch console at all. Seeing a remastered version of Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door for the Switch console in 2024 would be awesome; especially considering 2024 will mark the 20th anniversary of the game itself. While Nintendo has not announced any plans to remastered the Thousand Year Door game for the Switch console hopefully its something they will take into consideration within the next year or so.
