New Paper Mario: The Origami King details revealed

Some new Paper Mario: The Origami King details have been revealed on the Nintendo eShop. If you’re keen on picking up this Paper Mario Nintendo Switch game, there’s a lot that you can look forward to!

Paper Mario: The Origami King was first revealed about a month ago with a surprising new trailer, seemingly out of nowhere. This new Paper Mario game has our favorite Italian plumber taking on origami monsters who have transformed Bowser’s minions and stolen Peach’s castle. Yes, the bad guy in this new game stole an entire castle.

There weren’t too many Paper Mario: The Origami King details revealed at the time. Now, that’s all changed — new information has been brought to light. One key element of this upcoming game will be whacking Toads with your hammer; this will free them from their origami prison. As you free more and more Toads, they’ll rebuild the town and open up shops and other locations.

New details on Mario’s equipment were also explained. Mario can equip new Hammers and Boots to gain new capabilities in combat, but these specialized tools will have durability and can break after a while. He won’t be rendered defenseless, mind; he’ll always have access to his basic equipment.
