Nintendo announces Paper Mario: The Origami King for release this Summer


Jason Clement

Things have been relatively quiet on the Nintendo front as far as their upcoming games slate has been concerned, with only games like the recently released smash hit, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition being the only known new games for 2020 for a while. However, that all changed on Thursday when Nintendo dropped the news out of nowhere that Paper Mario: The Origami King would be releasing in a few months.

 

As the title teases, the plot in The Origami King revolves around a plot by an invading force to turn Paper Mario's world and its characters into origami. The accompanying trailer gives off a bit of a horror vibe initially, with a Peach that's presumably been the first to be turned to origami, and the rest of the main cast escaping just as Peach's castle is overtaken by the newest antagonist, King Olly. Luckily, Mario will be assisted by a new cast of characters, including King Olly's good-natured sister, Olivia.

 

One new ability that's also showcased in the trailer is called '1000-Fold arms', which gives Mario super long arms that allow him to peel, pull, and stretch out the environment in different ways to reveal hidden items and locations as well as solve different puzzles. The game also features a new, ring-based battle system where lining up scattered enemies can help you maximize damage.

 

Paper Mario: The Origami King is slated for release on July 17 on Nintendo Switch.
