Are you ready for your fun to in-crease tenfold?
Well, a special invitation to a colorful, paper-crafted world has nearly arrived.
Princess Peach is welcoming Mario and Luigi to
attend the kingdom’s origami festival when "Paper Mario: The Origami King" game launches exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on July 17.
There’s one tiny wrinkle in the festivities though, Princess Peach seems a little strange. To learn more about her mysterious behavior, you can view a debut trailer for the game by visiting https://papermario.nintendo.com/#trailer.
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. Just when matters couldn’t get worse, he’s bound Princess Peach’s Castle in giant colored streamers and transported it to a distant mountain. He’s even transformed Bowser’s minions into Folded Soldiers and enlisted them in his treacherous cause. It looks pretty dangerous on paper, so someone who’s a cut above the rest is needed to save the day!
Luckily, Mario is equipped with a range of new tools at his disposal to help secure victory. One of Mario’s 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 unexpected surprises.
Along the way, you’ll enlist the help of characters old and new, including King Olly’s good natured sister Olivia, along with a range of unlikely allies, including Bowser himself! If they haven’t yet folded to the whims of King Olly’s origami will, Mario will accept all the help he can find with open arms!
Paper Mario The Origami King also introduces a new ring based battle system that lets you flex your puzzle solving skills to line up scattered enemies and maximize damage. While the enemies may be crafted from paper, these dynamic, turn based battles are far from stationary. It’ll require a sharp mind to make short work of these crafty enemies.
With a detail rich world to explore, off the wall mini game events and countless mysteries waiting to be solved, the next joyful Mario adventure on Nintendo Switch is ready to deliver huge helpings of crafts and laughs.
Paper Mario: The Origami King launches in stores, in Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch and on Nintendo.com on July 17 at a suggested retail price of $59.99.
