The promo site for Paper Mario: The Origami King is up with a new “Movie” section showing how to create the origami characters from the game in real life. These instructional videos provide step-by-step guides on how to fold up paper to make perfect recreations of the in-game characters.

As part of a new interview with VGC, Paper Mario: The Origami King producer Kensuke Tanabe and assistant producer Risa Tabata have weighed in on fans’ reception to the series starting with Sticker Star.

Tabata said that the team avoids using the same idea twice since they want to “create new gameplay” and offer players “positive surprises”. Tanabe noted that he does check out some fan opinions after a game launches, but with cases in which he “can’t address those opinions exactly as fans want”, he tries to pursue “new, fun ideas.” Tanabe ultimately said “it’s difficult to satisfy certain fans with the adventure game direction if they think of Paper Mario games as simply being RPGs.”

Paper Mario: The Origami King producer Kensuke Tanabe has shared some interesting insight into how he’s approached the series in recent years.

Speaking with VCG, Kensuke was asked about how he ensures that the story of Paper Mario appeals to a broad audience. He revealed that Super Paper Mario had an “elaborate story” which “led the game away from the Mario universe”, so he’s avoided “using stories that are too complicated” since Paper Mario: Sticker Star.

Tanabe’s full words:
