Nintendo recently shadow dropped a trailer for a new upcoming game in the Paper Mario franchise titled, “Paper Mario: The Origami King.” For those who are not aware the game is apart of a spinoff series in the Mario franchise that first started as a sequel to Super Mario RPG. The game later evolved into the first Paper Mario game that was developed by Intelligent Systems and released on the Nintendo 64. The latest game in the franchise titled, “Paper Mario: Color Splash,” was released for the Wii U in 2016. The Paper Mario series is a series of games that feature RPG elements and usually features more mature storylines when compared to the mainline Mario series. Paper Mario: The Origami King will be released for the Nintendo Switch on July 17.
While I am excited to see a new game in the Paper Mario series, I am a bit worried since the last couple of games weren’t the best. I personally haven’t played a game in the franchise since Super Paper Mario on the Wii since the recent titles really didn’t look up to quality. Overall I think the new game looks promising and I hope it turns out good.
