Sometimes you just need… two brothers. Yes their jumps are strong, but their timed hits are stronger.
Something has happened to Princess Peach, and to everyone’s surprise Bowser has nothing to do with it. Instead, the villain claimed to be an ambassador from the Beanbean Kingdom visiting for good-will, only to steal away the Princess’s voice instead. Such an unusual problem can only be solved by an unusual solution: Mario must team up with Bowser to travel to the Beanbean Kingdom and get to the bottom of this voice-napping.
Oh, I guess this game’s named Mario and Luigi, so Mario’s green-clad brother might be involved as well.
Welcome to Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga! This was the first game in the Mario & Luigi series, made by the now-dissolved Alphadream. Like many of the Mario RPGs, this game tries to spice up the turn-based battle system by making it more active. True to the name, both of the Mario Brothers are your two and only playable characters. In battle and out, Mario and Luigi have particular moves they can use to travel or battle enemies. And not only do normal attacks have timed hits, but both brothers have a unique list of special moves that repurpose overworld moves into team attacks.
I’ll be playing the original GBA version, but it should be known that there’s a 3DS remake that came out in 2017, (about 14 years later.) This game’s existed for a while now, but it’s still an RPG so please don’t spoil anything that hasn’t come up. Also, hey, feel free to talk about changes or additions in the 3DS remake. Goodness knows I barely know anything about it.
