Lucky for you, there's no shortage of Paper Mario-like games for your next gaming experience on the Nintendo Switch. However, out of all the choices, we highly recommend Luigi's Mansion 3 (opens in new tab) since it gives the Mario franchise a bit of a twist like the Paper Mario games do. It's kid-friendly, fun, and offers a unique character to play. If you want to keep it light, cute, and handmade, Yoshi's Crafted World (opens in new tab) is the pick for you! It will give you that same cutesy feeling with a different texture.

We also love the idea of taking it up a notch with a difficult platformer like Cuphead (opens in new tab). It has a cute and unique animation style like Paper Mario does, only this game goes into classic cartoons instead of paper. However, this one is not for beginners! It's very difficult to play, which is honestly part of the fun.
