Good news, bad news: There is an adorable diorama that comes as a bonus with a special bundle of Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. But it’s only available to those who live in the United Kingdom.

The Nintendo Store for the UK is offering the Paper Mario remaster with a buildable battle stage–seen below. The diorama features Mario and Goombella facing off against Lord Crump, Koopa Troopa, Bob-omb, Goomba, and Chain Chomp. The heroes and villains are being watched by an audience of Toads, Koopas, and Goombas. It’s pretty cute. The bundle also has three rubber keychains as preorder bonuses. Meanwhile, we’re not sure what (if any) preorder extras there are in the US.

So far, this special battle diorama is only available as a bundle with Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door in the UK.

In September, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door was announced for Switch. The game, part of the long-running RPG sub-series, was first released on Nintendo GameCube in 2004. It was a follow-up to 2000’s Paper Mario and serves as the second entry in six games for the Paper Mario franchise. The last installment was 2020’s Paper Mario: The Origami King for Switch.

Earlier this month, Nintendo revealed that Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door will launch May 23. The RPG remaster will boast enhanced visuals, a rearranged soundtrack, and more. GameSpot also has a Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door preorder guide.

You also may notice that Nintendo has seemingly changed something about its game releases with the Paper Mario launch date. It’s arriving on a Thursday, which will also happen with Luigi’s Mansion 2 HD and Endless Ocean Luminous. Previously, first-party Switch games came out on Fridays.
