Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (Mario & Luigi RPG 4: Dream Adventure in Japan and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. in Europe and Australia) is the fourth installment to the Mario & Luigi Series and an upcoming title for the Nintendo 3DS. It is scheduled to be released in Europe on July 12th, Australia on the 13th, Japan on the 18th and August 11th in North America.

Dream Team is one of the new titles that is part of the "Year of Luigi" to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Luigi's first appearance. Because of this, he will have a bigger role in this game than he does in past Mario & Luigi games. There will also be a special edition of the Nintendo 3DS XL that will have Luigi themed print that is being released in Japan and it will include a digital version of this game on its SD card.


[edit] Story

Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toadsworth and the Toads are all invited to Pi'illo Island to travel the island and see the sights. During the sightseeing of Pi'illo Island, Luigi decides to take a nap on a special pillow that opens a portal to a place called the Dream World. Luigi's nap allows Antasma to pull Princess Peach into the dream world. It is later explained that there is two powers found in the Dream World, the Dreamstone and the Darkstone, though the later was destroyed by Antasma in order to create chunks and turn the residents of Pi'illo Island to stone. It is up to Mario and Luigi to rescuee the princess and free the frozen Pi'llows.

[edit] Gameplay

Mario & Luigi: Dream Teams gameplay will shift from Luigi's dream world, where Mario and Luigi will move in 2-D fashion and the real world, where they roam freely on the overworld. When Mario is playing inside Luigi's dreams, Starlow will be able to move Luigi's face to affect the area that Mario is in. Battles will be able to give the players coins. The game features a new art style because of the shift to 3D. Badges will make a return in this game.
