REVIEW – Paper Mario: The Origami King

To unfold and fold,
An entire world torn apart,
Paper puns are hard.

Ahem, while not the most eloquent haiku ever written, there are more pressing matters at hand, such as the unfolding of the Mushroom Kingdom itself in Paper Mario’s latest barmy adventure for Nintendo Switch.

Has Paper Mario: The Origami King got what it takes to uncrumple our Sticker Star tainted hearts, or is it better off chucking into the waste paper basket? Find out in our review after the break!

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

Long time fan of Nintendo and games in general, I always lean on the quirkier and unique sides of things in particular. It all started when I was lucky enough to get a Gameboy Color and Pokemon Yellow for my tenth birthday and it’s been going strong ever since. I’ve always had a need to get my voice heard and share anything I find interesting with the world.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons Summer Update Wave #02 Announcement

This afternoon, Nintendo unveiled the latest update to Animal Crossing: New Horizons with the second part of the Summer update. In a short video, shared on their official channels, it was revealed that this update would include Firework Shows. These shows, which take place each Sunday during August, will allow villagers to participate in Redd’s raffle and launch custom-design fireworks.

Additionally, a new dream feature was shown, which appears similar in function to the dream suite from Animal Crossing: New Leaf. This will allow the player to access different dream islands, uploaded by others who own the game and even share their own. Not only that, an Island Backup and Restoration feature will also be included as part of this update. This free content will be available for download on the 30th July, with the next update (which appears to be Halloween themed) due sometime in Autumn.

Check out the full video below, or click ‘Read More’ to check out the full press release.

I have been gaming for 30 years, starting mostly with PC Gaming, where I developed a penchant for classic point and click games. Over time I discovered Nintendo, starting with the Game Boy and the Super Mario Land games. Here, my love for Nintendo grew as I discovered many of their other franchises, from Zelda to Pokémon. These days I play a bit of everything but Nintendo and their unique creativity always keeps me coming back for more.
