Mario & Luigi: Dream Team slated for summer release on 3DS

Nintendo's much-loved Mario & Luigi RPG series is set to return this year with Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. Set primarily within the sleeping mind of Luigi (a realm in which the oft-relegated brother sees hiself as a mighty hero), the game looks to make rather innovative use of the 3DS' lower screen.

By manipulating Luigi's slumbering real-world body with the stylus, it appears that the player can directly affect events withing the dream-word. It's just like Inception without the droning horn blasts. Possibly.

The game currently has a release window of summer.

    It was awesome enough seeing that indepth look on Luigis Mansion Hearing words of "The Year of Luigi" and then THIS happens, jesus christ Nintendo, its only 2 months and youve been announcing games left and right!

    Holy crap, this is awesome news! I love the Mario & Luigi series, and once again, they seem to have come up with a pretty neat gimmick/concept to base the game around :D

    And to that, they always base it on a character who plays a star role and gets a ton of personality, Partners in Time did the Babies, Bowser's Inside Story did, well, Bowser, and now, Luigi.

    ...The babies have a ton of personality? >> See, in that game, I'd say I enjoyed IN SPITE of the babies having a starring role, not because of them :P

    Hah oh wow XD Its not technically "ton of personality", but they were the main focus and were driven into a much more bigger and better role than CRYING and being in Spin offs.

    I guess so, but they still didn't do much outside of being extra inputs you used in battles... And they still cried and were annoying at times :P I mean, I think it's safe to say that M&L: PiT is the weakest in the series, no so much because the game itself was any bad, or even lesser than the other two... But because it had the babies, and everyone hates the babies XD

    In all seriousness though, besides the Babies, some people consider PiT the weakest on the occasion that it decided to go the route of "New World, Back to Hub, New World, Back to Hub" formula compared to the Overworld Nature of the Original and Bowser, i dont think so personally, and some might also think it was still great.

    I didn't really mind that either because it's essentially what you did in the other two games as well, really. Bowser's inside story may not have had an obvious Hub, but you pretty much went from one world/stage to the next.
