Nintendo has officially announced Paper Mario The Origami King, arriving on the Nintendo Switch on July 17.
After months of speculation, Nintendo has now announced a new Paper Mario for the Nintendo Switch. The news was announced through Twitter just now. Arriving on July 17 exclusively for the Switch, the RPG can now be pre-ordered through the official Nintendo website.
We’ve included the description alongside the game’s reveal trailer and a set of screenshots down below. A rather interesting tidbit is the Metroid tease at the end of the trailer. We do know that Metroid 4 is currently in development for the Switch, but Nintendo has yet to share more details about the highly-anticipated game. Let's hope that this tease means that Nintendo will soon be sharing new info on that one. Of course, this tease could also be related to the rumored new 2D Metroid title, which is said to be a sequel to 2002's Metroid Fusion for the Game Boy Advance. Unfortunately, only time will tell.
