Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga Remake Coming to 3DS

Nintendo’s not done announcing games yet at E3. On its Treehouse Live stream, it just unveiled Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions. The game will be out on October 6.

The “Bowser’s Minions” part is a new storyline starring enemy characters. Nintendo describes it as: “Recruit characters to grow your own Minion army as you fight to locate your missing leader.” Here’s what that looks like:

Nintendo says that “Bowser’s Minions” is a lengthy game on its own, and not just a brief bonus experience.

“It’s the same pixel artwork from the original game, but it’s been updated [with] 3D lighting,” Nintendo said on the stream. Superstar Saga was originally released on the Game Boy Advance, and was the first in the Mario & Luigi series.

There’s a new mechanic that lets you place pins on the game’s map to remind you to revisit areas.

And of course, there are new Amiibos: Koopa Troopa and Goomba.

News of this game was leaked via a dataminer in April.
