Mario And Luigi: Dream Team announced for 3DS, first screenshots and video

The Mario and Luigi RPG series makes its 3DS debut this summer

Mario And Luigi: Dream Team was confirmed today during Nintendo Direct. Set for a summer 2013 UK release date, it is the first Mario And Luigi RPG to be released for 3DS.

The Mario And Luigi series began on GBA with Mario And Luigi: Superstar Saga and it was followed up by Partners In Time and Bowser's Inside Story on DS. Now we have Mario And Luigi: Dream Team.

Mario And Luigi: Dream Team takes place inside the mind of a sleeping Luigi, who is a powerful, brave hero in his dreams.

Satoru Iwata introduced the game during Nintendo Direct. He told us that the player must touch Luigi's face as he sleeps to solve puzzles or have multiple Luigi characters appear in battles to defeat enemies.

You can see Mario And Luigi: Dream Team in action during Nintendo Direct. Watch from 9.11.

    I'm surprised that this has been unveiled so soon after we got Paper Mario, another Mario RPG. Still Paper Mario striped away a lot of the RPG elements, so this may please those who missed those parts, as well as fans of the other Mario & Luigi games.

    Possibly the best thing announced today. That, or the Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Wii U package

    It has the star thingymabober from bowsers inside story, but considering where the game seems to be set, It looks like fawful wont be there ;--;

    amazing, I wasn't a great fan of partners in time but bowers inside story was incredible. I'm hoping this will be the same, my only gripe is the graphics look slightly strange compared to previous versions, almost as if it doesn't look like a Mario and Luigi game, but that's probably just me

    Loved Bowsers Inside Story. Might get LM2 over this though.

    So many great games coming out for the 3Ds and the Wii U. I can afford these but I dont have enough time to play all of them.

    Hmmm....
    Well I hope that Nintendo have spent time and effort in making this game and that it's not just a quick money making game too fill in the gaps between big releases.

    This currently looks fantastic; I'm hoping Nintendo haven't changed too much, as was with Paper Mario.

    I so have to buy this when it comes out. And hey, they didn't 'tone it down' like they did with Paper Mario, we seem to have all new settings and characters like we expected from the Mario RPGs!

    The dream thing will only make it even better.

    This looks hilariously fun! Have loved the other M&L games, so will definitely be picking this up!

    Are we to be having Fawful making the appearance? I am wanting him in the Kart racing too.

    I think this was my favourite announcement from Nintendo Direct. Such a great series, I don't really play RPGs but these games are awesome! I wonder if it'll beat Bowser's Inside Story, though?

    did't think there was much coming out this year then BOOM! So many good games.
