No GravatarIn a game series that was once held to be a great one, Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga has now been re-released for the 3DS. The Mario and Luigi series is still an amazing series even though after the trilogy and Dream Team, the game has lessened in quality. Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga’s remake is certainly a beautiful one. There is so much effort put into making this game better than it ever was before. It is remarkable what a new team can do, with new tools to make a game better.

This remake is something that shows all games can be made great again if elbow grease is put into making it fresh. While it still holds all of the greatness from its Gameboy Advance version it is so polished now. The characters seem all the more vivid, and the story all the better. The combat flows like it always did, and you want to continue playing.

Superstar Saga introduces us to a whole new area to explore in the Bean Bean Kingdom. With a wicked foe stealing Peach’s voice, of course, the Mario Bros are off to save the day. It is interesting seeing them play as an RPG, especially when you remember back to the first time this game was released. It was such a revolutionary game to play back then, and it still is so charming.

It is still fun unleashing Bros Attacks, and now with some quality of life touches, it will make it easier for new players to enjoy. You can try out the moves before unleashing them, and that is also helpful. This game just wants you to enjoy it, and allowing you to save anywhere is also a help. 

This game is just as great as it was all those years ago, and if you haven’t played I highly suggest you do. With zany characters, and a new playstyle for Mario and Luigi, it is certainly one new fans of the series will also enjoy. The battles are fun, and you feel good, playing the game, and destroying enemies with your button presses.

There is also a brand new mode which I think is a lot of fun. It’s Bowser’s Minions Mode. This new mode has you controlling a goomba who may not have all his ducks in a row. But, this lucky goomba is going to lead an army to find his hero and leader Bowser. It’s funny seeing a Goomba as the main character as obviously Goomba’s are never seen as the hero. 

This game is a different style than the main game, as it has its own playstyle. In this game, you adjust your army of Bowser’s Minions and send them out. The team with at least one minion alive at the end wins. There are different enemy types that will change the game based on how they attack. There is a triangle, so ranged beats aerial, and aerial beats the ones on the ground, etc. It is really a fun little game, that runs alongside the main game and that is a cool thing. Will this little Goomba save the day, its all up to you in Bowser’s Minions!

Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga+ Bowser’s Minions is a game that anyone who is a Mario fan should find enjoyment in playing. This game was really recreated with such love, and detail that it really makes for a great experience.  I’m sure the plan is to recreate the other two following games Partners in Time and Bowser’s Inside Story and have the trilogy up to the snuff of the later games.

Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions is out now on the 3DS Family of Systems. Head out there and rescue Peach, and if you want to Bowser, as you enjoy a classic Mario game alongside something brand new!
