Join Mario and his new companion Olivia on a comedic adventure that will take you to the far corners of a papercraft world in Paper Mario: The Origami King on Nintendo Switch!
Face off against the Origami King and his army of paper invaders, team up with some extraordinary companions and master magical powers on your quest to save the world.
It’s tear-able! The devious King Olly has transformed Princess Peach into origami, uprooted her castle and sealed it shut with magical paper streamers. Never fear, as our moustachioed hero Mario and his new friend Olivia are here to save the day!
Unwrap an Epic Quest in Paper Mario The Origami King
Travel the land, repair the damage done by the Folded Soldiers and rescue Toads trapped in all manner of wacky scrapes!
Put a stop to King Olly’s plans by engaging in battles which will put both your tactical thinking and puzzle solving skills to the test – against his origami army, as well as humongous bosses under his command!
Rebuilding Piece by Piece
You’re guaranteed a little surprise whenever you fix up a hole – whether it’s some coins or even a Toad in need of saving. Keep your confetti stores stocked up by whacking stuff with your hammer: trees, grass, bad guys, bigger bad guys, you name it!
Scattered throughout the land by the invasion, the citizens of Toad Town are in desperate need of your help! Crinkled, scrunched up, bent out of shape – whack a troubled Toad with your hammer to restore them to their former selves, and send them on their merry way.
King of the Ring
When it comes time to throw down against a Folded Soldier, battles take on a puzzling twist! Scraps take place within a ring-shaped arena – with Mario standing at the centre and his opponents positioned at different places around the ring.
Carefully slide and spin the ring to group enemies together. Grouping enemies correctly will give you a damage bonus when it comes time to attack. Be warned – you’ve only got a limited number of moves and the clock’s ticking, so don’t dilly-dally!
Mario’s got room for quite the arsenal on his adventure! On top of his well-worn Boots and Hammer, you can kit Mario out with additional Hammers and Boots, granting him additional combat capabilities. Although fancy, these weapons will break after a while, so be sure you change things up every so often.
Want to vary up your abilities even more? With Accessories, boost Mario’s skills both in battle and on the overworld – from giving you more puzzle-solving time to allowing you to vacuum up confetti from further away.
