    At E3 2015 Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam also known in Europe and Australia as Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros. and in Japan as Mario & Luigi RPG Paper Mario Mix, is a game developed by AlphaDream and published by Nintendo as a upcoming role-playing video game. The game is the 5th title in the Mario & Luigi Series, combining the elements and style of characters within the Paper Mario series. Its release date is expected to be Spring 2016 coming out for the Nintendo 3DS.

    Plot
    One day, Luigi accidentally trips and knocks over a mysterious book, causing the paper-thin residents of the world within to spread across the Mushroom Kingdom. With Bowser combining his evil army with that of his paper-thin counterpart, Paper Bowser, Mario and Luigi team up with Mario's counterpart, Paper Mario, to set everything right and defeat Bowser and Paper Bowser.

    Gameplay
    The stories our heroes Mario & Luigi face in Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam crosses together the Mario & Luigi and Paper Mario series, resulting in the sprite-based residents of one universe meeting their paper thin counterparts from the other. For example, players control a team consisting of Mario, Luigi and Paper Mario, whose choices are controlled by pressing A, B and Y. In addition to the moves Mario & Luigi can make in their series, Paper Mario can use his body to help. Paper Mario can use his thin paper body to squeeze through tight gaps, or turning into paper airplanes just like The Thousand Year Door to help the other Mario & Luigi. Like games before, battles incorporate various mechanics such as a timing attack or using a special ability. In battle, Paper Mario can make multiple copies of himself, allowing him to deal extra damage or attack more than one enemy at once, as well as using special techniques where all three fighters attack at the same time. There are also sections where players control a giant Papercraft Mario and fight other papercraft enemies.

    I would have preferred seeing Intelligent Systems head this project. I'm fairly indifferent towards this game, but I hope it ends up being great.

    This may end up being the first 3DS game I've been interested in for a long time, if they do it right.

    Well AlphaDream made the 3D Mario & Luigi series and the game contains less paper than 3D elements, but that is just a theory.

    What really kill it for me is the absence of paper Luigi. But the game looks good enough to have hope.

    It is not confirmed that there won't be a Paper Luigi.

    I am sure they will have some sign of him, but he won't be in much of the story.

    Oh, absolutely. I would be stoked if they decided to make a Paper Mario more akin to Thousand-Year Door or the original N64 version. I'd be flying off my seat of that happened.

    Mario and Luigi games? Meh, I prefer Super Mario RPG and the two Paper Mario gems in the past. Seriously, bring back Rogueport -- that stuff was awesome back in 2004.
