With all the excitement over the new Super Mario Galaxy video today, we’re hoping you’ve still got room for a bit more moustachioed love. Check out this new footage of Super Paper Mario for the Wii, featuring what looks to be some sort of Macaulay Culkin doppelganger. 

The game is played with the Wiimote held sideways, a la Virtual Console, utilizing the pointer and motion sensing capability to highlight hidden objects and perform flashy special moves. Some cool new in-game features include the ability to swing the camera around for a different perspective and the option to play as other characters from the Mario universe. Playing as Bowser looks particularly fun. Find out for yourself when the game hits stores this April.
