To mark the occasion, the distinctive world of Paper Mario, from corrugated cardboard landscapes to hologram stickers, will pop up in glorious 3D, with the help of the artist and designer Camille Walala. Her imaginative and quirky interior design will transform the ever-popular Breakfast Club café and bar in Spitalfields into a one-off diner experience based on the world of Paper Mario:Sticker Star.

From floor to ceiling, including walls, tables and chairs, placemats and staff uniforms, the diner will bring to life the game, including key characters, objects, stickers and other aspects of the Sticker Star world.

The diner will be open to the public and operate as usual, but with diners experiencing the special ‘paperised’ Mario take-over on Tuesday 20 th and Wednesday 21 st November.

About Paper Mario: Sticker Star (released on 7 th December)

The adventure begins on the eve of the annual Sticker Fest in the town of Decalburg in the Mushroom Kingdom, where bothersome Bowser has caused the wish-granting Sticker Comet to explode. As a result, six Royal Stickers are scattered across the land and it’s up to Mario to set off on an action-packed adventure to try and recover them. Aided by his crown-shaped ally Kersti, Mario must travel to the far corners of the World Map and explore dozens of wildly different courses in his search for Comet Pieces and the Royal Stickers. Along the way he will lend a hand to many friends and battle with enemies big and small, peeling off stickers to boost his potential wherever he goes.

Stickers are all-important in Paper Mario: Sticker Star, both for solving puzzles and emerging victoriously from turn-based battles. During battle, every attack Mario performs requires the use of stickers, which become more effective at flattening his foes when the A Button is pressed with the right timing. Battle Stickers allow for all sorts of offensive and defensive moves, such as jumps, hammer attacks or POW Block hits. When Mario comes across mysterious 3D objects during his adventure he can turn them into Thing Stickers which can then be summoned into battle for a powerful – and often hilarious – effect. Players can also spend coins to activate the Battle Spinner and attempt to line up three icons correctly for a special bonus as well as the ability to use up to three stickers in a single turn. Using stickers creatively or in different combinations can have a major effect on how the battle plays out.
