Nintendo announced what could be the first of many Mario games coming to the Nintendo Switch. Paper Mario: The Origami King is a new paper-crafted adventure that is available to pre-order now and will be released in July.
The kingdom has been ravaged by an origami menace! Join Mario and his new partner, Olivia, as they team up with unlikely allies like Bowser and the Toads to battle evil Folded Soldiers.
Try to free Princess Peach’s castle from the clutches of King Olly in this comedy-filled adventure, only on the Nintendo Switch system.
Players will once again be able to partner up with other characters again. The paper hero will also have new abilities, such as the 1,000-Fold Arms ability, which allows you to extend your arms to interact with the environment to solve puzzles. They also introduce a new way of battles, where you can line up your enemies and plan your attack for maximum damage in an all-new, ring-based battle system that will require you to use both your puzzle-solving skills as well as your quick wit.
Paper Mario: The Origami King will unfold itself onto Nintendo Switch on July 17 for $59.99 USD / € 59.99 / £ 49.99.
