Because the game lands in just a few days, now's your last chance to pre-order Paper Mario: The Origami King and play without delay on day one. Considering how we only found out about it in a recent announcement, that's quite the turnaround - we've had just two months to get a Paper Mario: The Origami King pre-order in before it lands on shelves this coming July 17.

Paper Mario: The Origami King looks like it'll hark back to the older style of Paper Mario games. More specifically, it'll expand the last two entries' emphasis on creating an all-craft world, with environments that seem to be made from construction paper. Sounds fun, right? And very Nintendo. It's enough for us to pre-order Paper Mario: The Origami King, anyway.

The game's story is concerned with the appearance of strange creatures made from thick, folded card that have spread throughout the Mushroom Kingdom. With Princess Peach having been turned into one of these origami monstrosities, Mario must put on his best detective impression and get to the bottom of this invasion. If you're looking for more info, we've got plenty of details from the Paper Mario: The Origami King trailer.

To make sure you can play on day one and begin enjoying as soon as possible, here are the best Paper Mario pre-order prices.

Getting the most out of your Paper Mario pre-order

To get the most out of Paper Mario: The Origami King, you'll want to aim for a Nintendo Switch setup that's as optimized as possible. Starting simply, that means examining what the best Nintendo Switch bundles going offer you. Elsewhere, you'll probably want to see what your options are for getting a cheap Nintendo Switch controller if you want a more traditional Pro Controller to play Paper Mario with, not to mention raiding retailers for some of the best Nintendo Switch accessories. One of the accessories that you should definitely invest in is a Nintendo Switch SD card for general use, as well as the fact that the Switch only comes with the alarmingly low 32GB of memory as standard. To complete the package, protect your Switch with the best case for Nintendo Switch and then plug in one of the best Nintendo Switch headsets to have your Animal Crossing game fully serviced and optimized. 

A lot to consider perhaps, particularly given Nintendo gear holds its price quite stubbornly. However, if you're able to upgrade your Switch set up in any of these departments, then you'll be off to a blinder.
