Nintendo has announced that Paper Mario: The Origami King will be coming to Nintendo Switch on July 17. Mario faces one of his most thrilling challenges yet in Paper Mario: The Origami King when the dangerous King Olly unleashes his plan to fold the entire world. Plus, he’s bound Princess Peach’s Castle in giant, colored streamers and transported it to a distant mountain and transformed Bowser’s minions into Folded Soldiers, enlisting them in his treacherous cause.
Luckily, Mario is equipped with a range of new tools at his disposal. One of his new abilities, called 1000-Fold Arms, allows you to interact with the landscape by stretching out and pulling, peeling and revealing new locations, helping you to solve puzzles and uncover surprises.
Along the way, you’ll enlist the help of characters old and new, such as King Olly’s good-natured sister, Olivia, and other unlikely allies, including Bowser himself.
The game also introduces a new ring-based battle system that lets you flex your puzzle-solving skills to line up scattered enemies and maximize damage.
“Paper Mario: The Origami King delivers a grand new adventure on Nintendo Switch for players to wrap themselves up in,” said Nick Chavez, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “This game marks the debut of the Paper Mario series on Nintendo Switch, expanding the vast library of games with another standout entry in a beloved franchise.”
