|Paper Mario: The Origami King has released! As there will be more information substantially available. We would like you to help adding information about the game.|
Paper Mario: The Origami King is a role-playing video game developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch. It serves as the sixth installment of the Paper Mario series, following Paper Mario: Color Splash.
According to the development team, "the series' affection for reinvention is partly driven by a desire to motivate its development staff." Despite the characters turned into origami, "[developers] had to ensure that [players] could identify which characters the origami versions were based on." Character artists worked with each character to analyse whether a side-on or front-on view would be best to bring out their individuality. "[They] created mockups of the characters using actual paper in order to draw out the elements that make the characters look origami-like and form rules that would be used as the foundation for all the origami characters."
Princess Peach's castle
Princess Peach invited Mario and Luigi to the origami festival at the Mushroom Kingdom. When Luigi and Mario arrived, they noticed nobody is at Toad Town. Mario rechecked the invitation to be sure that they were supposed to arrive. Mario and Luigi entered Princess Peach's castle and Luigi realized he forgot the gift on his kart. Before he could exit, the door closed and locked itself. Mario searched for the key in the castle and an origami Peach stepped out of the door. Peach asked him three questions. Regardless of Mario's answers, Peach opened the pit to the dungeon.
Mario fell into the castle dungeon and met the imprisoned Koopa Troop. Mario and the Koopa Troop mentioned that they have not seen Bowser and Peach is "less lifelike". A group of origami Shy Guys escorted the group but Mario to the other room. After they left, Mario heard a voice saying that it is in a "very strange place". Mario unsealed the wall and freed an origami figure that introduced herself as Olivia. Mario and Olivia find Bowser stuck on a peg and Mario freed him. Mario and Olivia escaped the dungeon and Peach and a yellow origami Shy Guy halted the trio. The Shy Guy ordered its minions to battle Mario.[note 1] Mario successfully defeated the minions with Olivia's help. The Shy Guy revealed itself to be King Olly to Olivia's surprise. King Olly wrapped Peach's castle into streamers. Mario, Olivia and Bowser rode on the Koopa Clown Car with Shy Guy to escape. They noticed Luigi's hat, but they attempted their escape. However, the streamer separated the group.
- This is the fourth spin-off Mario game for the Nintendo Switch following Mario Kart 8 Deluxe , Super Mario Party, and Luigi's Mansion 3.
- ↑ The Origami Goomba appears to be the Goomba that Mario encountered at the dungeon. In the dungeon, Goomba told Mario that he will say "hi" to Toad for him.
