Today’s the day, folks! Paper Mario: The Origami King is out on Switch as we speak, and Nintendo has treated us to a lovely launch trailer to celebrate.
We’re sure you know all about it at this point, especially if you’ve read through our full review of the game, but we’ll share this official wording from Nintendo for you just in case:
King Olly has moved Peach’s Castle in his devious plot to fold the world in Paper Mario: The Origami King out now exclusively for Nintendo Switch. Luckily, Mario’s ability to wield mighty paper techniques will put a crinkle in those plans. Mario’s journey to untie the massive streamers binding the castle will lead him through vast regions full of surprises. He’ll visit raging rapids, an ancient ruin, a ninja-filled mansion and a lively desert oasis that will quench anyone’s thirst for excitement.
Paper Mario: The Origami King delivers new ring-based battles that require strategy and quick thinking to line up enemies and execute well-timed attacks to maximise damage. It’ll take a sharp mind to determine when to stomp enemies with Mario’s boots, when to whack ‘em with a hammer and when to strategically use items to heal or attack. When Mario’s not duking it out in the ring, he can investigate suspicious spots to uncover hidden items, toss confetti to repair holes in the landscape, discover loads of Toads hiding in the scenery, play mini-games to earn in-game rewards, and revel in an abundance of secrets and treasures.
Later today we’ll be sharing one of our launch day polls on the site, so make sure to check back with us to see just how many people are planning on checking out Mario’s latest adventure. Until then, feel free to discuss the new title in the comments below.
