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.

Mario and Luigi + Bowser's Minions | Minions

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!

Mario and Luigi + Bowser's Minions | Combat

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!

    I figured you’d like this announcement, as well as two others that were announced today.

    As for the 3DS, I still say that it will be gone in 2019, which would give it a lifespan roughly the same as the DS. It’s got good first and third party support for the rest of the year as well as the first part of next year. There’s still a few more titles that haven’t come over yet that I have my eye on (Yokai 3, Dragon Quest XI, Great Detective Pikachu, the last Sega Collections) so hopefully we hear about those in the next year.
