You’re not dreaming; today marks the release of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team in North America. The Operation Rainfall Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words, not me) is at an anime convention this weekend, so his dreamy temporary stand-in shall celebrate the long-running RPG spin-off series. Were you all aware that a demo for Mario & Luigi: Dream Team was now available in North America? You can play for yourself, or you can read my hands-on impressions of the game from E3 this year.
Here are the highlights from this past week:
XSEED Games announced Senran Kagura Burst for North America; it’s headed to the 3DS eShop. RELATED: Senran Kagura Burst has also been confirmed for Europe.
There was a Nintendo Direct this week that (mostly) featured games we knew about. Still, we’re getting Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney and other awesomeness.
Last but not least, copies of Xenoblade Chronicles have found their way back to Gamestop. Their asking price is $89.99 for pre-owned (but apparently ‘Like New’) copies.
This week in features: Josh Speer reviewed Cloudberry Kingdom for Wii U, Crystal Baltimore reviewed Undead Bowling for 3DS, and finally Tyler Lubben took a look at a bunch of Disney games in this week’s Games of the Past REVIEW to celebrate the incoming DuckTales Remastered.
