Trailer Impressions: Paper Mario: The Origami King – Announcement Trailer
Louis Hughes’ thoughts on the Paper Mario: The Origami King – Announcement Trailer:
The trailer shows off everyone being turned into Origami in this paper universe of the Mushroom Kingdom. What’s new is that it seems Princess Peach is the enemy, or is she being controlled? Not to mention, it’s implied that you will be allied with Bowser and his minions. This is something that wasn’t done since Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars.
Like all Paper Mario games, this looks beautiful with the bright colors and the look of everything in paper style. While the battle mechanics were briefly shown, it looks like from the trailer that it’s going to use a ring-like system. While Paper Mario: Color Splash’s battle system wasn’t to my liking, I grew to appreciate it.
