These days, the effort taken to imitate an already successful title is an extremely wild frontier for all kinds of improvements and mods that go beyond what the developers formerly thought they could build on just hardware.
That said, with the advancement in the development of the yuzu Nintendo Switch emulator, games are being added for support or like in the case of Paper Mario before it became public.
Speaking of which, Paper Mario: The Origami King launched yesterday, and as a result of that, we’d want to take a deep dive at the newly released mod that enables the game run at sixty frames per second.
The newly released Paper Mario: The Origami King ported as a Nintendo Switch exclusive is a recent entry in the popular Paper Mario series. However, this entry does not meet the standards of an RPG.
In an elaborate review of the latest Paper Mario combat system, Dave Aubrey of Wccftech had this to say:
The battle system in Paper Mario: The Origami King is the best one the franchise has had in a long time – and yet I still tire of it. Mario will select from a line up of hammers and shoes in his inventory, and use those as weapons in battle, either slamming enemies with a hammer at a short-yet-wide range or jumping down a row of enemies with his boots on. The big change here is the unique circular battle arena that has been shown off in trailers. Mario stands at the center, and at the start of each turn, the battle arena becomes a puzzle where you rotate and slide the rows of the arena to change the locations of the enemies. You slide them all into available positions to stomp them out, and you’ll get a nice attack bonus for your success.
Those looking to try the experimental 60fps mod for Paper Mario: The Origami King can locate it on yuzumods GitHub page—GitHub/yuzumods.
How to test the mod:
Since it will be an exefs mod, you’ll have to log in to your yuzu emulator, select Paper Mario: The Origami King, and click open Mod Data Location. Then you can drag the folder from the 60fps-rar file and voila, you should be good to go.
Also, listed on yuzu’s GitHub official account, you will find a similar graphics patch for a compiled list of titles.
Note: with a little overclocking, some of the patches can also be used on Nintendo Switch hardware, but you should be careful when customizing your graphics capability in your Switch hardware.
