    Ah I should've worded it better. I didn't say they were developing their own game I meant it like their team was developing/assisting with a game.

    Mario and Luigi: Partner's in Time was my jam as a kid... Ah well, it's not like I was going to play anything new by AlphaDream anyways, but alas... a little sad

    You really should play Super Star Saga and Bowser Inside Story, they are quite good.

    im personally upset about this, i love the M&L series. im also wondering why nintendo hasn't done anything about helping them, alpha is pretty much like a second party company by now.

    That makes sence since it was done using Nintendo characters anyway.

    I hope this doesn't screw over the future Switch game.

    Well, technically, piracy will always account for 00.00% of sales.
    Unless people are paying the publishers for those pirated copies, somehow.

    Remakes do sell less the newer the original game is. A GBA game cannot be played on a 3DS (Unless you have an Ambassador 3DS and even then is just a few games and without cable link functionality).

    Super Star was a GBA game so it couldn't be played on the 3DS. and the Captain Goomba sidestory was good enough to consider buying the remake if you already had it.

    Bowser Inside Story was a DS game so it is perfectly playable on a 3DS. Also being a DS game is (almost) region free.

    Not to mention you can already play as the Mario Bros and fan favourite villain Bowser on the DS version. Bowser Junior just isn't popular enough to (re) sell the game on his own. And people wanted Captain Goomba to return.
