Paper Mario: The Origami King will arrive exclusively for Nintendo Switch on July 17. A new entry in the Mushroom Kingdom-set RPG series, it features the traditional flat paper versions of Mario and friends, as well as new origami characters and powers. Nintendo games don’t generally get fancy special editions or preorder bonuses, and Paper Mario: The Origami King is no different. Even so, you can preorder the standard edition now.

The villain this time around is the origami King Olly and his army of “folded soldiers,” who have captured Princess Peach’s castle on their quest to fold the world. To fight back, Mario is equipped with stretchy 1000-fold arms, which he can put to use in a revamped battle system. Helping Mario out is a new partner named Olivia–King Olly’s sister–and even Bowser. It sounds wild (cue the Tim and Eric’s Awesome Show mind-blown gif).
