Check out the teaser trailer below:

 

The plot of Paper Mario: The Origami King is a familiar one— Mario must once again rescue Princess Peach from the clutches of evil. This time, however, the once-flat paper princess has been folded into origami by King Olly, who will fold the whole kingdom unless Mario puts a stop to it. 

 During his journey, Mario gains a few unlikely allies. King Olly’s sister, Olivia, and the formerly villainous Bowser both join Mario’s efforts to rescue Princess Peach. The game also features unexpected battles and power-ups, including an arm-extending 1,000-Fold Arms ability that allows the player to interact with the landscape of the game.
