Oh no, Paper Mario: The Origami King has been leaked online less than a week out from its official release. This has been confirmed by a well-known dataminer over on Twitter, who is now sifting through the Switch game’s files.
Gaming Reinvented adds to this – revealing how late-game content is already circulating on the worldwide web:
“We’ve checked and found what seems to be spoilers for the final boss, as well as the last dungeon of the game and various other late game content.”
There’s also footage being uploaded to streaming platforms, so you might want to avoid using any search terms related to Paper Mario.
Surprisingly, this isn’t the first time a Paper Mario game has been leaked. Nintendo accidentally made Paper Mario: Color Splash available on the Wii U eShop two weeks ahead of schedule back in 2016.
If you’d like to see direct footage of Paper Mario: The Origami King – we advise you stick to Nintendo’s Treehouse broadcast, which aired on its YouTube channel yesterday.
