Shogun Studios is a location in Paper Mario: The Origami King. It is a Japanese-themed amusement park, themed after the real-world Edo Wonderland. Notable attractions include the Dress-Up Photo Studio, the House of Riddles, the Souvenir Shop, the Big Sho' Theater, the Ninja Attraction, the Shuriken Dojo, and Tranquil Pipes Teahouse. Mario, Olivia, and Bob-omb visit here after traveling down Eddy River from Autumn Mountain. Downstream from Shogun Studios is Sweetpaper Valley. The Fire Hammer and Ice Hammer can only be obtained and found at Shogun Studios.

History[edit]

While Mario, Olivia, and Bob-omb are being guided downstream from Autumn Mountain on the Oarsman's canoe, they pass by Shogun Studios. Olivia is very excited and wants Mario to stop there, pointing out that they have to go as the blue streamer is wrapped around Big Sho' Theater. If Mario chooses to continue downstream, however, the blue streamer blocks the path to Sweetpaper Valley. At the entrance, Mario has to buy a pass to enter the park: the Commoner Pass is 2400 Coins while the Royalty Pass costs 9800 Coins.

Upon entering Shogun Studios, Olivia and Bob-omb notice how quiet the park is. A Goomba, Snifit, and Koopa Troopa inform Mario that the staff have been trapped in a large castle called Big Sho' Theater. Mario and Olivia ram into the door, while Bob-omb notices a keyhole. Olivia encourages Mario to explore Shogun Studios and find the staff key to the park.

A Paper Macho Koopa Troopa blocks the way to the House of Riddles. To wake it up, Mario must climb up the Lookout Tower and hammer the bell. He can then free a staff Toad at the inside door of the tower, who gives Mario a hint as to where the staff room is located. By opening part of a bush at the east end of the park, Mario can access the staff room and free the owner of the Shuriken Dojo. However, the staff key is missing; it turns out to have been taken by Luigi, who is trapped in the Ninja Attraction. The Jungle King Mask, Space Warrior Mask, and Goomba Mask are also located in this room.

A chain of deals quest takes place at Shogun Studios. Going to the south end of the park, Mario enters the Tranquil Pipes Teahouse. A Shy Guy criticizes the serving glasses and gives Mario his Straw. East of the staff room, a training Ninji has forgotten his breathing tube and brought his Shuriken instead. Mario must trade the Straw, which the Ninji uses as a breathing tube instead, for the Shuriken. The Shuriken is used to open the Shuriken Dojo, and if Mario plays the shuriken-throwing game and gets a score of exactly 21, he is awarded with the Baseball. Behind a house elsewhere in the park, two Dry Bones are throwing a Bone back and forth. Mario can trade the Baseball for their Bone, then feed it to Princess, an angry Chain Chomp.

As Olivia pets Princess, a MAX UP Heart appears. Mario, Olivia, and Bob-omb go to the Ninja Attraction, finding Luigi and getting the Shogun Studios Master Key. They use this to unlock the door to Big Sho' Theater, defeat Rubber Band, and destroy the blue streamer. As they exit, a celebration is started. Watching the fireworks, Bob-omb suddenly regains his memories, but promises to stick with Mario and Olivia as they continue to Sweetpaper Valley. As the Oarsman rows downstream, various Toads wave goodbye to Mario.

There is a fishing spot at the southeast end of Shogun Studios. Mario may fish up a Legendary Cheep Cheep that turns out to be a Ninji in disguise; the staff Toad gives Mario 100 coins in consolation.
