Paper Mario is back with The Origami King!

We can't wait to see what's in store.


Everything is a little easier with a helping hand, that's what companions are for!

Yes, there will be partners alongside Mario, here they are.

All Confirmed Partners In Paper Mario: The Origami King

In the game's trailer, we spotted the following:

  • Olivia - King Olly's sister trying to stop his plans
  • Bobby Bob-Omb - Bobby has lost his memory
  • Kamek - Bowser's minion
  • Koopa
  • Folded Bowser
  • Professor Toad - a professor of ancient history
  • Bowser Jr
  • Luigi
  • Toad


The game's Chinese trailer (which has since been deleted) also clearly shows Toad as a partner in the game.

It's unclear how exactly the partners will work and play a part in this latest game. However, we can assume it will operate similar to previous instalments as there is a clear opportunity to use them during battles.

With the new Ring-Based Battle System, it's difficult to predict how partners will contribute to this.
