Why Paper Mario: Origami King might be the best Mario game yet

by birtanpublished on August 24, 2020

Hey before we talk about this game i need you to know something i grew up in new jersey this is how i say mario i can't say it the other way i'm sorry you're just gonna have to work with me here okay mario

I love paper mario because it puts a really interesting spin on the traditional mario game the first one showed up in the us back in 2001 and since then we usually get one new

Paper game per console personally i was a huge fan of super paper mario on the wii and after hearing about the origami king coming to the switch i was all in and with almost a dozen

Hours of the latest paper mario game under my belt i can confidently say that paper mario the origami king is another worthy entry in the series combining really clever design surprisingly solid comedic writing and

All of the rpg adjacent elements we've come to know and love in origami king mariel must work with his new friend olivia whose brother has become drunk with origami power

And has used his i don't know streamer energy to rip princess peach's castle from the ground and toss it up on him out i know unbelievable along the way mario starts to unravel the power of origami

And uses it to defeat enemies solve puzzles and take on boss battles mario collects paper scraps that shake out of the environment and then can use them to spray confetti wherever paper holes appear in the world

It is a great animation and i just realized mario is basically rip taylor in this game the format of origami king is very much the same as other paper mario titles

You'll make your way through different areas collecting and fetching items that will help you continue the adventure and of course that means a major part of this game is turn based battling which this time

Around has you spinning a playfield so that you can either line up or stack enemies together before you attack at the start of a battle you'll have a limited amount of time to make a number of moves

To turn and twist the board this is actually not as easy as it looks early on of course it's pretty simple but it gets way more complicated the further you are in the game

Thankfully the more mario upgrades is hp the more you can avoid having to enter a battle altogether and just clobber a goomba on the head and move on that's a good thing though because i

Kind of felt that the battling at least in the early stages of the game kind of outstay their welcome once you do two or three in a row you're ready for something else and that said the boss battles play out

In a modified version of the ring battle which are much longer and feel a lot fresher you don't always fight enemies in these sort of ring battles some of them require more strategic attacks

Like the really cool giant paper mache monsters that you'll often have to deal with everything in the game's world looks beautiful and feels hand crafted and lends itself perfectly to this

Game's theme i love how mario befriends characters that he'd normally want nothing to do with and the fact that everyone who hasn't been folded as the game puts it

Is just sort of wandering the world wondering what's wrong with everyone and there are toads to be rescued scattered all over the world because of course there are those guys

Cannot catch a break it's ridiculous and the writing is really funny in this game like maybe more than it has any right to be i guess i wasn't expecting much but it's great and

Constant throughout and like i said earlier i love that paper mario games usually go to some pretty bizarre places and origami king is no exception this game's weird okay there's dance numbers gigantic

Cheerleading turtles with pom-poms it's great if anything the only downside in origami king is that it doesn't make that much of a departure from the paper mario formula

But because the game only makes it out roughly once a console generation i don't think that's much of an issue i've loved playing this game while my five-year-old watches along and it's probably too complicated for him to

Play right now but he is loving every minute of it paper mario the origami king it's basically a no-brainer if you have a nintendo switch let me know if you're going to pick this

One up stay safe my friends and as always thank you so much for watching
