Help Luigi’s Dreams Come True in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team


Mario’s younger brother, Luigi, is having a great year.  The 30th anniversary of the younger of the two brothers is going strong and he’s got his own game to prove it.  Mario & Luigi:  Dream Team is being released exclusively to the Nintendo 3DS as part of the celebration.  On August 11th, everyone will have a chance to see what Luigi dreams about.

In the game, players will be able to dive into Luigi’s dreams to help save the island of Pi’illo.  You’ll be able to use the touch screen on the 3DS to manipulate Luigi and make fantastic things happen in his dream world.  In his dreams, Luigi, has fantastic powers called Luiginary Attacks which can be used to create hundreds of little Luigi’s to create towers, hammers or wrecking balls to do battle.  He can also grow in size or alter his environment as needed.
