Nintendo has come out of nowhere with the announcement that it will be having a new Nintendo Treehouse Live event tomorrow. It should come as no surprise that a portion of that livestream will be dedicated to the upcoming Paper Mario: The Origami King with a new gameplay reveal, but additionally, Nintendo is set to show off a new WayForward game with both a trailer and gameplay reveal.
Nintendo announced the Treehouse Live July 2020 event on the Nintendo of America Twitter on July 9, 2020. On July 10, 2020, at 10AM PT / 1PM ET, Nintendo will be going live on the Nintendo YouTube channel with their special presentation of the July 2020 Treehouse. On the docket is new gameplay for Paper Mario: The Origami King, which is launching on July 17, 2020 on the Nintendo Switch. After that, we’re getting a look at an all-new game from WayForward, which will be showing off a fresh trailer and gameplay to go along with it.
Check out gameplay of the upcoming game #PaperMario: The Origami King tomorrow 7/10 at 10am PT on #NintendoTreehouseLive | July 2020.

A very interesting note is that the WayForward game will be “a title in a franchise new to WayForward.” Such as the case, it may not be an original IP, but rather a WayForward take on an existing franchise. That also means it’s not a new Shantae, Mighty Switch Force, or River City/Double Dragon game just to name a few. Either way, WayForward has built an incredible style for itself on a number of great games spread across many IPs throughout the years. It will be interesting to see what they have for us in the Nintendo Treehouse and if it’s a completely new thing or a popular franchise with a WayForward splash of style.
Stay tuned tomorrow as the Nintendo Treehouse Live July 2020 event hits. You can bet that we’ll have the latest coverage and reveals from the event right here at Shacknews.
