Time for some paper-folding action. Nintendo’s surprise Paper Mario sequel arrives along with Warhammer 40K: Mechanicus, Gradius, and more.
Paper Mario continues to be an odd little sub-series in the Mario-multiverse. With the latest release, a surprise announcement a few months back, Nintendo is kicking the weirdness up a bit.
Now Paper Mario’s world is set to include some fold-happy villains in the form of the Origami King and his cohorts. Presumably, that means that the new game will center on paper-folding as its main gimmick.
Aside from the paper plumber, there isn’t much else landing on the Switch this week. Fans do get Warhammer 40K: Mechanicus, as well as the arcade version of Gradius, but that’s about it. Everything else is decidedly smaller in terms of appeal.
