The next game in Nintendo’s comedy RPG series Paper Mario has been revealed for the Nintendo Switch, and there’s not long to wait in order to play it.

Paper Mario: The Origami King, as it’s cleverly called, is due for release on July 17th, and has the titular king (or King Olly, to give him his proper title) transforming Princess Peach into Origami. Not forgetting to mention that he has the dastardly plan of folding the entire world, and has even folded Bowser’s minions, forcing him to team up with Mario.

The game has a brand new ring-based combat system, in which you are able to line up enemies to attack them all at once, which surely add some strategy to the game.

Mario has a new ability in the game called the 1000-Fold Arms, which has Mario’s arms growing longer. This ability allows you to interact with the environment in various ways, for puzzle solving and more. You can stretch, pull out and peel the environment, revealing new locations and secrets.
