In the trailer we see new locations, new minigames, and new partners with Kamek, a Toad, and Bowser Jr. While sporting their typical designs, the characters are called Bobby (an amnesiac Bob-omb), Professor Toad (a Toad studying ancient history). It appears that some partners will enter battle to make attacks.
Lining up more enemies in a row by rotating and sliding the ring to increase your power. And cause your attacks to strike more enemies at once- all under a time-limit per-turn.
Curiously, the bosses shown so far appear to be realistic stationary- guarding the ends of the streamers that have wrapped up Peach’s Castle. However, we also see a Glooper Blooper and an origami phoenix in the trailer, which may indicate there are other bosses. In these boss battles, the rings and grid must be rotated to give Mario a path to the boss.
The game also has hidden Toads to find, folded up into new origami forms by the Origami King. Mario can also scatter confetti to repair torn-up land.
