I remember when the first Paper Mario game released on N64 back in 2001. It was such a massive change from the other Mario games of the time since it offered an RPG experience similar to my favorite SNES game, Super Mario RPG. I replayed that first Paper Mario game so many times, and to this day, it is still one of my favorites. I’ve also played each of the sequential titles in the series. Many of the latest ones have been lackluster, to say the least. But I’ve been holding out hope that another glorious Paper Mario would grace us.

So, you can imagine how ecstatic I was when I discovered that the sixth installment in the series, Paper Mario: The Origami King, is scheduled to release on Nintendo Switch during the summer of 2020. Here’s everything you need to know about this upcoming game.

Plumber’s Paper Cut VI



Paper Mario: The Origami King

Defeat the origami invaders

Mario and the other citizens of the Mushroom Kingdom discover that a hoard of origami villains has overtaken their home. An origami Peach is on the throne, and it’s up to our favorite stumpy plumber to set things right.

What is the plot for Paper Mario: The Origami King?

This game starts like so many others. Mario and Luigi receive an invitation from Princess Peach inviting them to attend an origami festival. The brothers run off to enjoy the festivities only to discover that Peach has been turned into origami by the evil King Olly. What’s more, King Olly has used his origami warriors to invade the Mushroom Kingdom and take over Peach’s castle.

Mario must band together with Olly’s sister, Olivia, to fight off these invaders and return peace to the land. Bowser’s minions have also been turned into origami and have betrayed their Koopa King, so a partially-folded Bowser is forced to join Mario on his quest. This looks like it’s going to be a hilariously fun adventure.

What is the combat system like?

It appears that an updated version of the old combat system might be employed in The Origami King. The official video show Mario jumping on rows of origami enemies using Shiny Boots. The video also shows that he can manipulate the battlefield by sliding his foes to different positions for a better lined up attack. Some footage also revealed that Mario’s hammer attacks will also be part of the combat system. We’re so excited for these attacks to be returning in this upcoming game since they’ve been absent in some of the other titles.

Will Mario have any traveling companions?

As stated before, we know for sure that Bowser and Olivia will join Mario. However, it’s uncertain at this time if he will have other permanent companions. The official video for the game does show Mario riding in a canoe with a Toad and a Bob-omb, but these might just be random NPCs that appear for a sequence.

The Bob-omb, in particular, has shown up in various shots, so if anything, it seems likely that he is a long-term companion. But once again, we don’t know for sure. At the very least, no footage has been shown of him participating in the battle sequences. We’ll keep our ears to the ground and will update this section as we learn more.

Are there any new abilities?

There sure are. So far we’ve seen that Mario has a new tool, the 1,000-Fold Arms, which allow him to interact with his environment in order to solve puzzles or find hidden items. In the video, Mario demonstrated by pulling down a paper tab on the side of a house. We’re guessing that there might be other abilities and tools introduced into this game, but we don’t know what they are at present. We’ll update when we learn more.

Why does Mario wear a Metroid helmet in the video?

Some people are wondering if the presence of Samus Aran’s papier-mâché Metroid Helmet at the end of the official release video might be teasing Metroid Prime 4 on the Nintendo Switch. We honestly don’t know if that’s the case. However, it’s likely that this is just an inside joke placed by Intelligent Systems, the developers behind Paper Mario: The Origami King.

You see, Intelligent Systems has done a lot of support work and programming on various Nintendo games including Metroid games and Donkey Kong games. As you can see in the picture, there’s also a papier-mâché Donkey Kong head and a Goomba head in the shot. We’re pretty sure this is just a silly easter egg that nods to that fact.

When will Paper Mario: The Origami King release?

Paper Mario: The Origami King is slated to release for Nintendo Switch on July 17, 2020. It will sell for $60, and pre-orders are currently available.
