New Paper Mario Announced For Nintendo Switch

The paper-thin Nintendo Switch 2020 lineup is looking a lot thicker with the announcement of a new Paper Mario recently.

Dubbed Paper Mario: The Origami King, the series will be making its debut on the Nintendo Switch this 17th July. Check it out below:

Yep, it’s laced with a ton of puns and a lot of cute papercraft aesthetics. Here’s the synopsis:

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.

The game will feature a new ring-based battle system that lets you “flex your puzzle-solving skills to line up scattered enemies and maximize damage”. Sounds cool!
