Description

The kingdom has been ravaged by an origami menace! Join Mario and his new partner, Olivia, as they battle evil Folded Soldiers, repair the damaged landscape, and try to free Princess Peach’s castle from the clutches of King Olly in this comedy-filled adventure, only on the Nintendo Switch™ system. Master strategic, ring-based battles Line up scattered enemies and plan your attack to maximize damage with the new, ring-based battle system that requires both puzzle-solving skills and a quick wit. Mario and Luigi receive an invitation from Princess Peach to attend an origami festival and excitedly hurry to Toad Town…but something’s amiss. After investigating the eerily empty town, the duo finds a fearsome (and folded) Princess Peach—she’s been turned into origami by King Olly, ruler of the Origami Kingdom!

On his journey to liberate Peach’s Castle and repair the ravaged paper landscape, Mario meets Olivia, King Olly’s sister, and the two join forces to put a stop to Olly’s origami onslaught. Even Bowser falls victim to Olly’s plot when his minions are turned into origami Folded Soldiers and betray their Koopa king, forcing him to ally with Mario and Olivia! Battle the Folded Soldiers in ring-based battles that challenge you to strategically line up enemies to maximize damage! Out of battle, Mario can use the arm-extending 1,000-Fold Arms ability in specific spots to interact with the landscape to…

I actually love the game, however the boss fight mechanics are not fun.

A joy filled experience with fun gameplay and awesome puzzle mechanics. A major improvement on the last two games. If you enjoy fun games, this game is for you.This game is worth your time and money even though many people may complain about how it is not an exact recreation of Thousand Yard Door.

I had a lot of fun with this game. It was my first Paper Mario game and I really enjoyed playing Mario outside of being a platformer. I think it ended up being a lot of fun even with slightly repetitive mechanics in the battle system.
