Nintendo held a special Treehouse Live presentation, where it showed gameplay from Paper Mario: The Origami King. Hosts Rhiona, Ethan, and Sam give a quick introduction to the game before showing around half an hour of gameplay including exploration, ring-based combat, hidden puzzles, and more.
Paper Mario: The Origami King sees King Olly binding Princess Peach’s Castle in streamers and taking it to a mountain as part of his scheme to fold the world.
