Mario and Luigi + Bowser's Minions | Remake

If you’re like me, you absolutely love the Mario & Luigi series. I’ve enjoyed it thoroughly since the original Superstar Saga came out on the GBA, and have played every game released in the series since then. While they have varied in challenge and replay value, each and every game was a ton of fun, with great combat, banter and goofiness.

Well, the good news is that the original Mario & Luigi game is getting a lovely remake in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions. This gives the original pixel art a new coat of paint, as well as adding 3D lighting to highlight the action. The Bowser’s Minions part of the game introduces a new side of the story where you, initially as Captain Goomba, control your team of minions searching for your lost King. Best of all, you can mix and match classic minions to make a worthy team to take into battle, as well as other captains you can unlock!

I officially take back my assertion that the 3DS was dead or dying. Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions is slated to release for the Nintendo 3DS, and I can’t wait to get to playing it. It’s slated to release this year, October 6th to be exact. So only a few more short months until Fawful returns!
