Want to know if Paper Mario Origami King supports multiplayer? Get your answer in this guide.

Paper Mario: The Origami King has released on the Nintendo Switch platform and fans are super excited. With a lot of puzzles, boss battles and more, this game will surely keep fans engaged and entertained. But is Paper Mario: The Origami King multiplayer? Here’s the answer.

Is there Multiplayer in Paper Mario: The Origami King?

Unfortunately, there is no online multiplayer in this game. It would’ve been fun to play with your friends and defeat various bosses through co-op but it is meant to be a single player experience only. There is no local multiplayer as well so it is quite a bummer.

While it was anticipated by some that this new addition might have multiplayer options, that is not the case. Just like the previous games from this particular series, The Origami King follows suit and presents itself as purely single player.

Will there be a DLC which has multiplayer mode? We can’t say as of now but we won’t keep our hopes up.

This is everything to know about co-op multiplayer in Paper Mario: The Origami King. If you do choose to embark on the single player adventure that this game is, you will have a blast. You can explore the overworld and gain coins, different items, interact with NPCs and solve puzzles. The combat aspect of this game is interesting too and you have to think of unique strategies for unique enemies. You can even execute some moves like ‘1000 Fold arms’ which gives Mario elongated arms that are, you guessed it, folded. It can prove to be quite damaging as you will see in our how to beat Earth Vellumental boss fight guide.

So, if you are planning to get the game, don’t be disheartened by the lack of multiplayer because this is a solid game on its own.
