Paper Mario: The Origami King is a sixth entry in the Paper Mario series. It was released for the Nintendo Switch Family on July 17, 2020 worldwide. It was announced by Nintendo in a video on their Twitter and YouTube accounts, on May 14, 2020.

Overview

Story

This game follows Mario and his new origami partner Olivia as they save the Mushroom Kingdom from the Origami King Olly. Inhabitants of the kingdom have been turned into origami slaves by the king, and the only way to save them is to defeat Olly.

Art Style

The game maintains the same style as the previous entry, Paper Mario: Color Splash. Entities are made up of crafting materials, and paper characters continue to have a white border around them, as to emphasize their flat appearance. The most apparent difference from previous entries is the addition of origami.

Gameplay

This entry features new abilities and a "ring based battle system." Enemies circle around the player, and can be aligned in order to gain damage multipliers. A straight line of enemies is optimal for a Jump attack, and a 2x2 is optimal for a hammer attack. Items from previous games also return. Outside of battle, there are several new moves, one of them being the 1,000 Fold Arms. Similar to Kersti and Huey's abilities, this allows Mario to interact with and change the environment.
