Intelligent Systems signs a debut in style for this installment, which sells more than Color Splash and Sticker Star together in its first days available.
Paper Mario: The Origami King has debuted with UK sales records. Despite not being number one last week for the great start of Ghost of Tsushima, this new installment for Nintendo Switch has become the fastest-selling game in the series on British soil; it therefore surpasses the start of Super Paper Mario (2007, Wii).
But this is not all, because only in physical format – which is what is computed in the GfK reports because Nintendo does not offer digital sales data – has sold more than Paper Mario: Color Splash (2016, Wii U) and Sticker Star ( 2012, 3DS) together in their first week.
At first the pattern is predictable, it is easy; over time it becomes more complex to find the perfect match.
With these data, the new iteration of the Mario saga turned into paper reflects a clear recovery in his state of commercial health and reflects the desire that this work has awakened in the Nintendo Switch community in English lands. It remains to be seen how this release translates into Spain, Japan or the United States.
A new must-have in the Nintendo Switch catalog
At FreeGameTips we really liked this installment. With a rating close to excellent, we have concluded by saying in our Reviews that it is a “triumphant return for the saga”. In the conclusions we highlight that the series “returns through the front door, it marks the way forward in terms of stage design and playable structure, without falling into experiments that generate conflict with the original canons and endorses the name of this dear series […] Its greatest virtue is reinvention. Its result, memorable. We are in luck. ”
Although we charge excessive combat, compounded by the lack of an experience point system, we believe that its world design, combat system itself, collectibles, exploration, and soundtrack make The Origami King a top enjoyment so any console user should at least consider. One of the surprises of that year 2020.
