A new paper-crafted Mario adventure unfolds on Nintendo Switch

The kingdom has been ravaged by an origami menace! Join Mario and his new partner, Olivia, as they team up with unlikely allies like Bowser and the Toads to battle evil Folded Soldiers.

Try to free Princess Peach’s castle from the clutches of King Olly in this comedy-filled adventure, only on the Nintendo Switch system.

New abilities… and new battles!

Use the 1,000-Fold Arms ability to extend your arms to interact with the environment and solve puzzles. In battle, line up scattered enemies and plan your attack to maximize damage with the new, ring-based battle system that requires both puzzle-solving skills and a quick wit.

Paper Mario: The Origami King reviews and comments

Loved this game, pretty much anything I could want in a Paper Mario.  I do wish the battle system rewarded even a minor grind, but the story is fun and whimsical, making up for any minuses the game might have.   It tells a complete story, but be aware of no endgame content for the most part. 
Awesome humor and its always a fun time to have a narrative experience in a Mario game. The locations and world were extremely well made and look beautiful. The battle system was interesting but repetitive and the game was overly long.

Where's the ✨flavor✨? Aside from a few really funny dialogue lines, this was overall just uninspired. You might even say it was....flat. 📄

Also the combat system was bonkers and mostly annoying.

Thousand Year Door still reigns supreme.
