More fun for Mario is on the way, as Nintendo has announced Paper Mario: The Origami King will arrive on Nintendo Switch on July 17.
Watch the official trailer for The Origami King below.
The game, as expected, has an origami theme, including folding-themed powers and a new villain, the evil Origami King. Players line up enemies to maximize their powers against them. Mario will also have a “1000-Fold Arms” move to lengthen his arms and control the world.

Paper Mario: The Origami King was developed by Intelligent Systems, which has worked on every game in the series.
More Mario mayhem may be on the way, to boot. This year marks Mario’s 35th anniversary, and Nintendo is rumored to have some remastered versions of Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine in the works.
