“Today's weather in Glitzville is sunny with a chance of more sun. It's above the clouds, stupid.”
Telephone Booth, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door

Glitzville is a Chinese-style city built on an artificial floating island. It is the setting of Chapter 3 in the game Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. The city has a Hot Dog stand and Souvenir Shop on its left and a juice bar on the right, but the main attraction is the Glitz Pit in the middle. Glitzville is popular and gets visitors from all around the world, according to Goombella's Tattle ability. There is also a pay phone in the left of the foreground. It also has a hot dog cut out next to the Hot Dog stand.

To reach Glitzville, Mario must take a blimp shaped like an enormous Cheep-Cheep. However, Mario needs a ticket to access the blimp, which can be gotten from Don Pianta for finding his daughter, Francesca Pianta.

Area Tattles[edit]

  • "Yup, this is Glitzville. It's so exotic; it feels like we're in another country! This is like an entertainment hub that attracts visitors from all over the world. The Glitz Pit is, obviously, the main attraction. That's where fighters duke it out. To the right: the Fresh Juice Shop. The Hot Dog Stand is to the left. Where to first?"

In addition, the shop in the left sells some items.

  • In Japan, Glitzville is known as Ūron Machi, which translates to Oolong Town (Oolong is a variety of Chinese tea). The "Oolong Town" moniker actually survived on the Glitz Pit building's label on the official Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door website, although it was correctly referred to as "Glitzville" everywhere else.
  • When the camera pans across Glitzville at the start of Chapter 3, a poster of a Cleft can be seen behind the Hot Dog Stand, while no normal Clefts appear anywhere in Glitzville.
