We're less than two weeks away from Nintendo releasing Paper Mario: The Origami King, so the company is now rolling out the trailers. The latest trailer is only 30-seconds long, but it's the most amount of actual gameplay we've seen from the company that wasn't just walking or a cutscene. You can check it out below as we see the different mechanics they've introduced this time around as combat and world-building have apparently changed a great deal. Enjoy the trailer as the game will officially be released on the Nintendo Switch on July 17th, 2020.
The kingdom has been ravaged by an origami menace! Join Mario and his new partner, Olivia, as they battle evil Folded Soldiers, repair the damaged landscape, and try to free Princess Peach's castle from the clutches of King Olly in this comedy-filled adventure, only on the Nintendo Switch system. Mario and Luigi receive an invitation from Princess Peach to attend an origami festival and excitedly hurry to Toad Town…but something's amiss. After investigating the eerily empty town, the duo finds a fearsome (and folded) Princess Peach—she's been turned into origami by King Olly, ruler of the Origami Kingdom! With five giant streamers under his control, King Olly binds Princess Peach's Castle and transports it to a distant mountain as part of his plan to re-fold the world. On his journey to liberate Peach's Castle and repair the ravaged paper landscape, Mario meets Olivia, King Olly's sister, and the two join forces to put a stop to Olly's origami onslaught. Even Bowser falls victim to Olly's plot when his minions are turned into origami Folded Soldiers and betray their Koopa king, forcing him to ally with Mario and Olivia!
