Nintendo gave us another Treehouse surprise today in addition to Samus Returns for the Nintendo 3DS: A remake Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga.
The Nintendo 3DS re-tooling of the classic Game Boy Advance RPG features 3D graphics in place of the original sprites, which might make some sprite-lovers (i.e. me) kind of sad. The game's new "Minion Mode" makes up for the loss, however, and is cause for the game's very name to get an overhaul. Say hello to "Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions."
The "Superstar Saga" portion of the game is more or less the same adventure you played on the Game Boy advance, Fawful jokes included. Minion Mode, which Treehouse promises is "huge," also contains a whole new battle system.
There's a new story to accompany Minion Mode, too. Bowsers faithful troops set off across the BeanBean Kingdom to find their boss and other minions loyal to the turtle king. The good(?) guys clash with Fawful's minions in multi-part battles that rely more on balancing fighters' passive skills and stats than actively stomping on heads or chucking hammers.
Mario + Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions will be the delicious mustard on your Nintendo 3DS on October 6.
