New abilities…and new battles!
To take on these folded fiends, Mario will have to learn some new fighting skills. Face off with the Folded Soldiers in ring-based battles where you strategically line up enemies to maximize damage. Out of battle, Mario can use the arm-extending 1,000-Fold Arms ability in specific spots to interact with the landscape to pull, peel, hit, and more!
Using the unique properties of paper, help Mario unfold new paths, explore vast environments, unlock the secret of an ancient ruin, brave the raging rapids, step out on stage, visit a string of islands, appear on a quiz show, and even participate in a mid-air battle!
RING AROUND THE GOOMBAS
Enemies are scattered around the arena—line ‘em up and take ‘em out!
Big bad bosses
Mario will have many tough foes along the way—here are a few to look out for!
The fearsome Legion of Stationery stands guard at the end of each streamer. They’re tough, but if you can find their weak points, you can crumple them in battle!
Beat the heat
This fiery foe is one of the towering Vellumental bosses that Mario must face in his journey. It’s said that if you manage to defeat one in battle, you’ll gain its power!
Reach for victory!
Use the 1,000-Fold Arms ability to extend your arms to interact with the environment and solve puzzles.
Step into a magic circle to activate your ability.
Use motion control to move your arms around—then use ZL/ZR to peel back pieces of the environment!
Follow the prompts to smack objects.
Use the 1,000-Fold Arms to land powerful hits on bosses.
Rescue the Toads!
Poke around a bit to find Toads hidden in holes, under rocks, and disguised as origami creatures like bugs and butterflies. They can boost your battle audience and help repopulate Toad Town!
Snoop for secrets!
Toads aren’t the only things you can find stashed away. Use your confetti to repair holes torn in the landscape, whack suspicious spots with your hammer to find hidden items, and try your luck at minigames to earn in-game rewards. Leave no stone unturned as you travel the world in search of hidden secrets and treasures!
