The biggest announcement for me during today’s Nintendo Direct was the confirmation of a new Mario & Luigi title. For those who don’t know, the Mario & Luigi games are some of the most charming, hilarious, and best designed RPGs in existence. The fact that a new one is being announced is the next best thing to an Earthbound collection.
This next entry into the Mario & Luigi saga features a Luigi focused plot, as Mario has to invade his brother’s dreams and I’m sure get in some zero gravity fights. Oh, and on the touch screen, you get to mess with Luigi’s face just like in Super Mario 64, ensuring that this will be the greatest game ever. Nintendo, you’ve sold me on a 3DS, and I couldn’t be happier about it.
Look for Mario & Luigi Dream Team to hit this summer.
