Series: Grandia
In an interview, game's art director Hidenobu Takahashi stated that the title of the game came from a Formula One race car.

"To us it means a variety of specialists coming together to challenge themselves with a new design. How can we create something amazing? That’s the single question we ask when we’re developing a game, and we’ll work ourselves to the bone to answer it. It’s the same as an F1 team, where they get specialists from all different fields together to build the fastest car. We’re in the final stages of our work here, so please look forward to Grandia soon!."

According to game's designer Richard Lemarchand, the Tibetan village in the game was inspired by the 2008 video game The Graveyard developed by Tale of Tales. The game's title affected him a lot more than he expected, with its simple experience of leading a slowly-moving elderly lady through a graveyard.

"I thought that in the same way that The Graveyard had created a space for me where I could reflect, so could our village."

Super Paper Mario
Six months after the American release of Super Paper Mario, American film director, producer, and screenwriter Seth Gordon, who's most recent works include the Pixels movie, had interest adapting a movie based on Super Paper Mario. Gordon was quoted saying, "I'd love, really love, to adapt Super Paper Mario into a movie, a movie that would constantly switch from 2D to 3D. In five years, 3D cinema is going to be really big." Gordon however specified that he never had the chance to speak with Nintendo about his envisioned project, so his idea was eventually forgotten.
