Paper Mario Leaflet, Japan

If you hadn't already guessed from the title, Paper Mario: The Origami King has a pretty strong origami theme running throughout its plot. It's set in the Origami Kingdom, features origami characters, and with the entire series being rather literally about paper, you can bet that there'll be plenty of origami puns to be found throughout the adventure, too.

In a very neat touch, Nintendo has managed to break the fourth wall by introducing origami-style promotional leaflets in Japan. As shown in the tweet below from @PushDustIn, the leaflets display various pieces of information as you continue to unfold them - which is cool enough on its own, never mind with the attachment to the game's theme.

We're now less than ten days away from the game's launch on Switch - it arrives in stores on 17th July - so make sure to stay tuned for our full review coming soon. In the meantime, the very first review score has now been published by Japanese publication, Famitsu, with the new release receiving a similar rating to past titles.
