Move Sticker Star and Color Splash info to Jump?[edit]

I was unaware this was here. They're not called "boots" in SS and CS, they're called "jump," and they function as a jump attack, not as swappable equipment. The shoe being on there is just to act as a visual indicator. The only question I have is how the TOK system relates, as well as that game's Japanese script.

I don't have the game, but here's what it works as far as I can tell:
  • Mario has a jump and hammer attack that he can use indefinitely. These are known as "Boots" and "Hammer" in English, and "Mario no Boots" and "Mario no Hammer" in Japanese.
  • Mario can also collect other types of boots and hammers and use them in battle. These are generally based on (and are merged to) the jump and hammer stickers and cards in the two previous games. These boots and hammers have durability and break after a while.
  • The boots and hammers aren't something you equip in a menu, but rather an option you pick in battle.
  • In Olivia's tutorial, she refers to the attacks as "jump" and "hammer" respectively. It's more obvious in Japanese because the sentence is the same in both instances, just with "jump" replaced with "hammer", and she says something like "let's attack with a jump/hammer". She then tells you to select the boots/hammer to attack with.
  • The usage of the word "boots" instead of "jump" is probably because it doesn't make sense to talk about buying and carrying "jumps". The two previous games didn't have this problem because attacks were stickers and cards, which make sense as things that can be carried around.
To be honest, I'm not sure what to do here... Blinker (talk) 12:37, November 27, 2023 (EST)
