HELP LUIGI’S DREAMS COME TRUE IN MARIO & LUIGI: DREAM TEAM

Explore Luigi’s Imagination in a Hilarious Nintendo 3DS Adventure

REDMOND, Wash., Aug. 8, 2013 – The Year of Luigi is going strong, and the celebration of the 30th anniversary of everyone’s favorite younger brother continues with Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, available exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS system on Aug. 11. Mario & Luigi: Dream Team puts players inside the head of Luigi … literally! In the game, players journey into the imaginative dreams of Luigi to help save Pi’illo Island from a mysterious villain. Using the touch screen on the Nintendo 3DS system, players can manipulate a sleeping Luigi to make fantastical things happen in the dream world, such as altering the dream world environment and growing Luigi to gargantuan size. In his dreams, Luigi also has amazing powers called Luiginary Attacks, such as spawning hundreds of Luigis to form towers, giant hammers and wrecking balls to do battle with a host of nightmares.

“For 30 years, Mario and Luigi have formed the cornerstone of the video game industry,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Original and quality experiences like Mario & Luigi: Dream Team make now the best time to own a Nintendo 3DS.”

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team is the fourth game in the charming Mario & Luigi series and builds on the clever game play the series is known for. But what sets Mario & Luigi: Dream Team apart from its predecessors is the ability to jump into Luigi’s dreams, where anything is possible. At certain points in the game, game play will shift from controlling both brothers in the isometric 3D real world of Pi’illo Island to controlling Mario and Dreamy Luigi through the side-scrolling vistas of Luigi’s dreams. Although the real brothers are separated during these sequences in the dream world, players still help them work together. By manipulating a sleeping Luigi on the touch screen, players help Mario overcome obstacles in the dream world on the top screen. Additionally, Mario pairs up with Dreamy Luigi to unleash fantastical attacks where hundreds of Luigis morph into shapes to defeat enemies. The game play in these sequences is wild and constantly surprising, and takes full advantage of the unique features of the Nintendo 3DS system.

The trademark humor and sharp writing that fans love about the Mario & Luigi series is not only back in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, it’s better than ever, with a whirlwind of laugh-out-loud moments involving the large, quirky cast of characters that populate Pi’illo Island and the over-the-top action in Luigi’s dreams. The massive game is bursting at the pajama seams with personality.

Fans who are familiar with the classic game-play features of the Mario & Luigi series will feel right at home with Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, as staples of the series such as using both brothers to battle enemies to earn experience points, leveling up to increase stats and customizing Mario and Luigi’s gear make a welcome return, along with some new features to discover as well.

In addition to retail stores, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team can also be purchased and downloaded in the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS. Also launching on Aug. 11 is the new black Nintendo 3DS XL system, joining the currently available range of colors – blue, red and pink. Fans who are joining the Nintendo 3DS family for the first time can do it in style with this new system.
