Paper Mario: The Origami King Announced
Nintendo revealed a new entry in the Paper Mario series today. Paper Mario: The Origami King is the sixth entry in the franchise and is scheduled to release worldwide for Nintendo Switch on July 17, 2020. The announcement trailer and additional screenshots can be viewed below.
Paper Mario: The Origami King will follow Nintendo’s iconic plumber as he faces off against the latest threat to the Mushroom Kingdom. Princess Peach has invited both Mario and Luigi to the origami festival, except the princess doesn’t seem to be acting right. The Origami King, King Olly, has also emerged and has plans to fold the world in half. He even transformed some of Bowser’s minions into Folded Soldiers to bother the heroic plumber.
Paper Mario: The Origami King will provide Mario with new tools to utilize in his adventure. He can now use 1000-Fold Arms to interact with landscapes to solve puzzles and open up new locations. Accompanying Mario in his adventure are King Olly’s good-natured sister, Olivia, and even Bowser himself, among other new and familiar faces. The game will introduce a new ring-based battle system and feature mini-games for Mario to check out.
