How To Watch Today's Nintendo Treehouse Livestream
Nintendo is airing a Treehouse Live broadcast today, July 10, that will show off Paper Mario: The Origami King and a new WayForward game.
Nintendo is hosting a new livestream event today, July 10. While it's not a new Nintendo Direct, the company will show off a couple of titles as part of its Nintendo Treehouse Live broadcast, which is scheduled to begin at 10 AM PT / 1 PM ET.
Specifically, Nintendo says it will broadcast gameplay of the upcoming Paper Mario: The Origami King, which is set to release for Switch next week. On top of that, the company will reveal at least one new title from developer WayForward, the studio behind the Shantae series and other beloved 2D adventure games.
Check out gameplay of the upcoming game #PaperMario: The Origami King tomorrow 7/10 at 10am PT on #NintendoTreehouseLive | July 2020. Plus, we'll feature a first reveal and gameplay for a title in a franchise new to developer WayForward!https://t.co/pWziqZZPd3 pic.twitter.com/ZeubOStUtD— Nintendo of America (@NintendoAmerica) July 9, 2020
What's most curious about the game reveal is the wording Nintendo used to describe it. The company says the game will be "in a franchise new to developer WayForward," which seems to suggest that whatever the studio is developing is part of an already-established IP that it hasn't worked with before. What that could be remains to be seen; however, in a follow-up tweet, Nintendo did confirm that WayForward is working on "a third-party property," so we at least know it's not something like a new Metroid or Legend of Zelda game.
