Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions Trailer & Release Date

One of Mario's greatest adventures is getting a huge upgrade.

One of the Game Boy Advance’s greatest titles is getting the 3DS remake it so richly deserves.

Here is the reveal trailer for Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions:

If you are one of the unfortunate souls who have not yet had the chance to experience Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga, allow us to share a few words of explanation and praise. Superstar Saga is a Mario role-playing game that is something of a spiritual successor to Super Mario RPG and the Paper Mario series. The game is well-liked for its fantastic level design and creative combat system, but it is absolutely beloved for its incredible script that features some of the funniest dialog in video game history. 

Superstar Saga spawned the Mario & Luigi RPG series and is still considered by many to be the best in that franchise. 

This remake looks remarkably similar to the original title in terms of general design, but Nintendo has widely decided to update the game’s original visuals without severely altering its timeless pixel art style. The result is a gorgeous looking handheld game that really captures Superstar Saga‘s more vibrant visual design elements.

As for the Bowser’s Minions part of the equation, that refers to a brand-new game mode included as part of this 3DS remake. It’s an entirely new story campaign that focuses on a minor player in the original story, Captain Goomba. This mode will allow players to take on Captain Goomba’s epic quest to save Bowser and will reportedly be almost as long as the original Superstar Saga campaign. 

This looks like a fantastic way to experience one of the most underrated Mario games ever made. We’ll hopefully be able to confirm that praise when Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions launches for the 3DS on October 6.
