May 15, 2020

Nintendo has made the surprise announcement that Paper Mario: The Origami King will be coming to Nintendo Switch on July 17th 2020.

In the game players meet King Olly, a new villain who claims to be the ruler of the Origami Kingdom. The fiend threatens Mario and friends by folding them into origami figures, including Bowser and his own minions. Mario must now team up with friends both new and old to put a stop to King Olly’s nefarious plans to fold the entire world.

Paper Mario: The Origami King will feature a new ring-based battle system where players must line up enemies to maximise damage. Mario also has a new 1000-Fold Arms ability which lets players interact with landscapes by pulling, peeling and stretching to reveal new locations.
