Should I play the earlier Paper Mario games?

Well yes you should, but no, you don’t need to play the earlier Paper Mario games to enjoy the new Paper Mario: The Origami King. The reason is that all these games are standalone. If you already know a fair bit about the Super Mario games, not just the Paper games, then you should recognize the characters. The extra characters and the game-play is however unique to the new Paper Mario game for the Nintendo Switch.

The lineup for 2020 when it comes to Switch games has not been very exciting, but now after the announcement of Paper Mario: The Origami King, you should feel a lot better about the year.

Paper Mario Debut

Did you know that the Paper Mario series actually had its debut on the Nintendo 64 (N64) and was a bit different to the normal Mario games. Instead this game-series focused on comedy and some RPG spin-off elements. This new game, The Origami King, seems to also follow this old but gold Paper Mario style.

Other Notable Nintendo Games in 2020

Some other games from Nintendo in 2020 to try out are The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Animal Crossing: New Horizons.
