Paper Mario: The Origami King – a metamorphosed debut

0 501

The evolution of the Paper Mario series over the years is quite strange. It began with the JRPG, the conventional Japanese role-playing game for Nintendo 64, but upgraded itself to a GameCube sequel named Paper Mario: The thousand-year door. Slowly it metamorphosed into a card and sticker adventure in the name Paper Mario: Sticker Star and Paper Mario: Color Splash. Presently it is making a new debut as Paper Mario:

The Origami King for the Nintendo Switch. The first installation of Mario on Nintendo 64 happened in 2000, and now, after a long span, the latest version has new and advanced skills for Mario that give the player an ability to view recent locations too.


The story of Mario’s Origami adventure revolves around Mario and his acolyte Luigi’s invitation to the Origami festival by Princess Peach.

The action of the game begins when Mario and Luigi reach the festival and find that Peach appears very different.  But Olly’s sister Olivia turns up and discloses her brother’s misdeeds and urges to save the kingdom.

The stereotypical rescue formula for a Paper Mario game begins from here.

Mario goes on, defeating and destroying small threats before he can get hold of the most significant risk. He collects many colorful streamers that are there in the castle. He combats with the unique Olly army. This game is a very usual Mario RPG adventure game.

  The world of Mario, the origami king, is a land of craft and craft supplies where everyone is made out of paper. The aesthetic here has a unique cuteness when compared to other Nintendo games like Kirby’s Epic Yarn or Yoshi’s Crafted World.

While touring the paperwork world, you can hit and hammer at objects, solve puzzles, and hidden treasures. Even by hitting trees and shaking rocks, you can earn coins, and at times, you can get a new path also. The game has some Disney-like theme parks with deserts and vast oceans.

The status that Mario has since it got a fanbase has been maintained in this version too.

Mario has been accorded the position of a celebrity throughout the game with his charismatic jumps and ability to fight with enemies. 

The game has a beautiful play and has a good sense of humor, which revitalizes the spirit of the gamer.

It is silly at times. Even the puns and jokes that are cracked make no sense most of the time, but irrespective of what it is, those jokes and puns are delightful. The goofy atmosphere, which prevails, makes the game more fascinating. They are official suppliers. The slapstick comedy like hammering everything to see what happens to. It is the silliness that often appears, and you will find such similar situations occurring frequently. Certain disguises unfold up with time. You can see a frog or butterfly of origami turning into an unusual toad. Mario is not only unique but attractive and fantastic too.

The game does not only have a thread of straight forward standard battles or fights. It mixes things in many unexpected ways so that a player feels fresh always. This is something that brings people back many times to this game. It has a lot of variety. In a world of hardcore, warcraft games like this actually boosts up the spirit through comedy and fun. Moreover, this is also a very good example. How to refresh classic RPG elements with a clear and clever idea and simplification. The nostalgia about Paper Mario is all that draws attention though the game is much flat.
