    I don't normally make hype threads but this is a Mario and Luigi game and I fucking adore the series so why the hell not.

    [​IMG]

    Release Date:

    North America: August 11, 2013 (a whole month later because NoA hates us)
    Europe: July 12, 2013

    Reviews:

    Features:

    - Still using sprites baby! ("They chose sprites because it's part of the Alpha Dream heritage", Iwata Asks)
    - A Hard Mode unlocks for experienced players after clearing the game.
    - There's special requirements for battles, like 'no damage KO' which will earn you points, once you have enough points you will earn a reward.
    - Sprites have 16 way movement on 3DS vs. 8 way on DS.
    - Level up/Gear (proving this to be the superior Mario RPG series, RIP in peace Paper Mario)
    - Nonsensical plot/same old witty dialogue/and more

    Hard mode? : DDDD
    Also don't complain about Europe getting something earlier for a change, usually it's the other way around. Turning colour into color takes some time, you know.
    Seriously though I'm so hyped for this. Bowser's Inside Story is one of the very rare games that I finished more than once (three times, to be precise) and the third time I still loved it.
    Also I will leave this here:

    It's pretty ridiculous that the entire world will see this game a month before NA, but I'm still pretty damn excited for it.

    Oh, also, "RIP in peace Paper Mario"? How does something rest in peace in peace, might I ask? :P

    Yesssss, I will love this.

    I wasn't fond of the stickers in Paper Mario. It was a good game but stickers let it down for me.

    I love the Alpha Dream Mario & Luigi RPG's! The thing they have always had over the Paper Mario series is much wittier dialogue, and more enjoyable/inventive battles. I love that they are still sticking with the stats based gameplay, which was something lost from Sticker Star. Only a couple weeks to go! CANT WAITTTT!!

    Like always, this will prove to be a fantastic M&L RPG.
    Hopefully it'll make up for that huge disappoint that is Paper Mario sticker stars imo.

    Level up gear?
    Hard mode included?
    Insta buy for me.

    A hard mode so hard even they can't do it? Well, hell, it can't be impossible since every attack can be avoided or countered in these games, so sign me up!

    I'm so hyped for this, I love the heck outta the M&L games.
    I got paper mario in october and traded it in for FE as soon as I could, it was horribad.
    And sprites. My lord sprites. I remember being young and disappointed DS games used exclusively sprites after SM64DS, but I miss them now xD

    Game looks like the title almost puts it. BiS was a step in the wrong direction, and this on looks like more of an actual sequel to BiS than a "new" game like the other 3 were.

    It would be cool if the story connects to the other 3 in some way, especially like how farful from SS ended up in BIS or how home the purple aliens ended up as some sort of Easter egg also.

    I think the stories are separate but include references to the others. Also, play BiS, it's fucking amazing.

    Ok thanks. I guess i will wait for this one a bit then though since i have BiS on my acekard which i havent played yet, and do that one instead first. I think i can scratch this game off my list for now on my recently created topic then and pick up some other 3ds games instead

    I honestly never played either of the DS Mario and Luigi games. I played and loved Superstar Saga back on my old GBA in the day and loved it. I def want to get dream team. But can anyone tell me, is there any type of over-arching story where it would benefit me to play Partners In Time and Bowser's Inside Story before Dream Team? Now don't bother arguing that both titles are fantastic. I am aware of this, but I just want to make sure that there isn't a big deal if I play the titles out of order. I've never sensed there was an overarching theme or multiple allusions to past titles, but I honestly don't know, so I wanted to make sure.

    I loved partners in times and hated BiS for some reason.(dodging inc shit storm)

    I hope this one isn't like BiS
