Paper Mario Returns With an Origami Twist

A good fold-fashioned surprise!

Nintendo has surprisingly announced the next game in the Paper Mario series, Paper Mario: The Origami King.

The latest title in the series sees the arrival of a new enemy in the Mushroom Kingdom. The Origami King Olly has folded Princess Peach and other familiar characters, recruiting them into his army (or should that be his Orig-army?)

A new trailer was released, showcasing the graphics and gameplay. Additionally, the title will see the return of turn-based combat from previous entries. However, the website notes the addition of a new ring-based system to line up enemies.

Paper Mario will come with new abilities too, such as the 1,000 fold arms to expand your reach and interact with environments. Partners will also return, with some new partners being the origami figure Olivia and a seemingly-folded Bowser.

Interestingly, towards the end of the trailer is a reference to another popular Nintendo franchise. This could mean another announcement is coming soon.

Paper Mario: The Origami King will release this summer on July 17th for the Nintendo Switch. The game is currently available to pre-order on the Nintendo eShop.
