Paper Mario: The Origami King is an adventure in the paper-like Mushroom kingdom where a good majority of it has been folded up into origami pieces. It’s up to Mario and his friends to rescue Peach, the toads, and save everyone from the current tragedy. You can spend your time going through side quests, engaging in collections, or focus entirely on the story. How you play the game is up to you, but it should take roughly 30 hours to complete.

The 25 to 30-hours spent in the game is not you completing everything. For those who plan to backtrack, do every quest, and make sure they complete the game to make it 100 percent, it’s going to take closer to 50 or 60 hours. There are various collections hidden through The Origami King and you can expect to do plenty of things over again, revisiting various areas.

The game has plenty of new mechanics to The Origami King, and a lot of story to cover. Our review of the game covered how it was a return to the original franchise, and fans of the Paper Mario series can rest well knowing it is back in good hands.
