Mario and Luigi were invited to an origami festival by Princess Peach, but when they arrive things are a little off.

Paper Mario: The Origami King follows Mario and Olivia as they attempt to save Princess Peach and her castle from King Olly, Olivia’s origami brother. King Olly wishes to turn the whole world into his origami kingdom and will stop at nothing to achieve his goal, going so far as to turn anyone made of paper into origami. Peach’s castle gets covered in thick streamers and it’s up to Mario and Olivia to unravel them all.
