Over in Europe, those who pre-order Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door via Nintendo’s EU store will get a Buildable Battle Stage! This is a display made of plastic foam with paper render printing, and it’s certainly a fun bonus. That said, artist Jayperior thought they could one-up Nintendo with their own similar creation.

Jayperior have created a Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door acrylic standee set, and while it shares the same spirit as Nintendo’s buildable battle stage, this fan-made work is certainly of a higher quality. The fan creation includes a number of different characters from the game, and you get to display them on an acrylic stand stage as well!

It’s not clear if Jayperior plans to release this as a product, as they would surely draw Nintendo’s ire by doing so. It’s not completely out of the question though, as Jayperior has released other game-related art projects in the past through Kickstarter support. If/when they do so with this Paper Mario creation, we’ll be sure to share it with you.

In Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, the nefarious X-Nauts are after the treasure behind the Thousand-Year Door! With a map from Princess Peach, and the help of a few locals, Mario journeys through a colorful world made of paper to find them first. To prevail in this quest, you’ll have to level up Mario and his friends, master timing-based attacks and badges to impress the audience on the stage of combat, and make use of all the abilities that come with being cursed—er, conveniently made of paper—like folding into a plane to cross big gaps or turning sideways to slip through narrow openings.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door comes to Switch on May 23rd, 2024.
