Paper Mario: The Origami King Revealed For Nintendo Switch (VIDEO)
Mario is one of the most recognizable characters in gaming, being featured in several titles over nearly 40 years. One such game to come out was Paper Mario on the Nintendo 64, which fans quickly grew to love. Since the game’s release 20 years ago, many installments have arrived, but it is now time for the franchise to come to the Nintendo Switch with Paper Mario: The Origami King.
Nintendo made a surprise announcement on Thursday with a new trailer for Paper Mario: The Origami King. Mario will be teaming up with his new partner, Olivia, as they attempt to rid the kingdom of an evil origami menace. As can be seen in the trailer below, Princess Peach is acting strangely as her castle has been taken over by King Olly. It’s time for Mario to once again save the Princess along with Olivia and some unlikely allies. Check out the action for yourself in the video below:
Paper Mario: The Origami King will include new battles and abilities for players to enjoy during the “comedy-filled adventure.” One of the abilities that players will be able to utilize is the 1,000-Fold Arms ability, which will allow one to extend their arms significantly to help solve puzzles and interact with the surrounding environment.
Paper Mario: The Origami King is set to arrive on July 17th exclusively for Nintendo Switch. Pre-orders are available right now, with digital buyers having the ability to pre-load the game before it officially launches.
