Gamers rejoice! Nintendo just announced a new addition to the Switch’s 2020 lineup. Paper Mario: The Origami King will launch on Jul. 17.

According to Nintendo, “Mario faces one of his most thrilling challenges yet in Paper Mario: The Origami King when the dangerous King Olly unleashes his plan to fold the entire world. Just when matters couldn’t get worse, he’s bound Princess Peach’s Castle in giant, colored streamers and transported it to a distant mountain. He’s even transformed Bowser’s minions into Folded Soldiers and enlisted them in his treacherous cause.”

The Origami King will join the Switch’s current lineup including Xenoblade Chronicles and Bravely Default II and their hit  game Animal Crossing: New Horizons, which has sold more than 13 million copies.
