    There's a new Paper Mario game, which got a trailer shadow-dropped by Nintendo today. Titled Paper Mario: The Origami King, it features the paper style you're used to, mixed in with origami crafts. In the trailer, you can see various worlds Mario must explore, along with partners, some game mechanics, and even the battle system. Nintendo claims that The Origami King will be a comedic adventure starring familiar faces with a new look. The game will be releasing for the Nintendo Switch on July 17th.

    My heart's been broken too many times to trust Paper Mario games to be good based on title along anymore. But the trailer certainly gives me the tiniest bit of hope.

    I love the way Nintendo just dropped major info in the middle of the night like they’re monsters dumping a corpse into a river. I feel like it’s been a while since they did ghat. Tweeting out the release date for Yoshi’s Crafted World with no fanfare is the last one I remember.

    Hate to be a debbie downer, but based on what I'm seeing in the trailer, I'm not getting my hopes up. They only show gameplay of an actual fight once, which leads me to believe that they're hiding the fact that this is just Sticker Star 3/Color Splash 2, and when they do it literally looks just like sticker star, even showing the "Card" you're using in the top left while you're using it. In fact the Color Splash comparisons are innumerable such as the massive health pool. While this isn't a gurantee that the battles are color splash, it's a damn good sign they are. If I was Nintendo and had an entire fanbase for a game begging for a return to a previous style, the thing I'd make sure to show off in my trailer is that the new game is a return to that classic style, not more of the same. Maybe it'll have partners which would be nice, but so far all we've seen is a generic bob-omb and maybe (keyword maybe) folded up Bowser. Without unique designs it'll make the partners feel super unfiinished, and even then, these could just be tagalong quests which sticker star and color splash were abundant in. Again, I'll hold off on final judgement until we have it in our hands or until more gameplay especially of the battle system comes out, but I'm not getting hyped until I know for a fact this isn't just Sticker Star 3. At least the story actually looks good this time.

    Honestly, I didn't even disliked that much Sticker Star gameplay (haven't played Color Splash), but I hated the fact that the humor was imo pretty bad compared to three previous games.

    I just hope it'll be the kind of humor we got in the olders one, because the trailer wasn't bad tbh

    Why the complaints ? If you have a hacked switch you are just going to pirate it anyway lol

    EDIT: I never played a paper mario game I guess what steered me away was it was a turned based game. If it is like Mario 64 or something like that but paper version I guess it will be interesting to me.

    I really wish Nintendo would do a proper Super Mario RPG follow-up. This looks pretty but I hope its not another sticker star trash fire

    This looks absolutely amazing, but I'm worried it'll just be more Color Splash-style garbage... you'd think Nintendo would've learned their lesson by now, but you never know.
