It was already rumoured that we would see a new Mario game from Nintendo this year and now, we finally know what’s coming. Instead of holding a Nintendo Direct, this news was just pushed out today alongside a trailer, announcing Paper Mario: The Origami King.
Paper Mario: The Origami King marks the debut of the Paper Mario series on the Nintendo Switch. You can get a good idea of what to expect in the trailer below:
As Mario, you will use your abilities to stop King Olly from taking over Origami Kingdom, you will also enlist the help of other characters along the way. The latest Paper Mario also has a new ring-based battle system, so you can use some puzzle-solving skills to maximise your damage against enemies.
Paper Mario: The Origami King is launching on July 17th.
KitGuru Says: Those rumours of a continuously delayed Direct in February/March appear to hold some weight in hindsight. Still, it is good to see that the current climate isn’t keeping the game from being announced or released. Will many of you be picking this up in July?
