Paper Mario: The Origami King uses motion controls for certain aspects of the game. The motion controls require you to move your controller or – if playing handheld –your whole Switch to execute a command. Moving the 1,000-Fold Arms is done with motion controls.
Most movements will require you to tilt the controller or move it around to make the arms reach a certain spot on the screen, but there are many times when you’re required to quickly shake or jolt the controller in a particular direction, or repeatedly back and forth for some time. The game has the motion controls turned ON by default. Use the info below to help you turn OFF motion controls in Paper Mario: The Origami King.
