Nintendo announces Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions

Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions players will travel to the Beanbean Kingdom on their rather unusual quest.

The turn-based role-playing game is coming out for the 3DS handheld on October 6.

During Nintendo's Treehouse Live stream, the company unveiled Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions for Nintendo 3DS. Superstar Saga is a Mario role-playing game that is something of a spiritual successor to Super Mario RPG and the Paper Mario series.

This remake will feature the newer art style and shadings, but the game itself is a faithful port of the Gameboy Advance classic that has more than found a home on both Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS hardware. This new story will focus on Captain Goomba and a cast of minions tasked to save Bowser.

Now named Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, this remake's main campaign seems fairly faithful to the original game, albeit with enhanced graphics. It's a game all its own, and a meaty one at that according to Nintendo, with strategy elements that allow you to become your own bad guy troop battalion leader. The new addition to the game is played at length in the video.

To honour this new side-story, Mario and Luigi will also be launching with new Koopa and Goomba amiibo, though what they unlock in game is yet to be revealed.
