Princess Peach asks some real unnerving questions in Paper Mario: The Origami King’s intro

Creepy lady!

Methinks there’s something wrong here. Through slick deduction skills learned from games like Mario is Missing, I’m able to surmise that all is not as it should be in the Mushroom Kingdom. 

GameXplain uploaded the five-minute intro cinematic to the upcoming Paper Mario: The Origami King and someone has a lot of explaining to do! The Origami Festival is a ghost town and Princess Peach’s castle is a prison. Then Peach comes stomping out of her lair asking creepy-ass questions like “Shouldn’t the Toads be silenced for all of eternity?” and “Will you crease yourself and be reborn?”

We already know the impetus for this adventure: King Olly has some sort of stranglehold on the castle. There’s brainwashing at play or someone’s in a disguise made of papiermâché. Either way, sound the alarm! This is too culty to be wholesome.

Paper Mario: The Origami King is out on July 17 on Switch. However, we’ll find out more tomorrow during a surprise Nintendo Treehouse live stream. In the meantime, here’s (mostly) everything we know about Origami King at this point. Then, in a week or so, we find out whether these folds are gold or tearable.
