Paper Mario: The Origami King Is $10 Off At Amazon For Black Friday – GameSpot

While we’ve seen quite a few doorbuster Nintendo Switch game deals for Black Friday, discounts on 2020 exclusives have been less common. Over the past day or so, however, retailers have started to offer modest deals on recent releases such as Super Mario 3D All-Stars and Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity (this deal has sadly ended, though). And now you can also save on Paper Mario: The Origami King at Amazon. Normally $60, the charming role-playing game is down to $50 for a limited time.

As with most Amazon discounts, there’s no telling how long this deal will be available. If you’re looking to pick up The Origami King for yourself or someone on your holiday shopping list, you should grab it as soon as possible. This deal ties the lowest price we’ve seen for Paper Mario: The Origami King since it launched over the summer, and it’s been a while since we’ve spotted it on sale.

It nabbed an 8/10 in GameSpot’s Paper Mario: The Origami King review in large part due to its fun and inventive grid-based combat system. “With a newfound combat system that steals the show and offers a novel take on turn-based combat, its winking, nodding, and adventuring shine all the brighter,” critic Suriel Vazquez wrote. “Its world and characters might not be the series’ best, but it’s still able to consistently throw left turns, good gags, and smart surprises at you. Each piece of The Origami King elegantly fits into its whole, taking its irreverent flair to new heights. The Paper Mario series has recently shown that being clever and being smart are two different things, but thankfully, it’s once again managed to be both.”
