Mario & Luigi Dream Team is the fourth entry in the Mario & Luigi RPGs for Nintendo’s handheld systems. With a release in North America for 3DS Aug. 11, 2013, I had more than a month to complete and try the “Hard” mode of the game before making an analysis.
For veterans of the series, many characters found in previous entries make cameos throughout the journey across Pi’illo Island. Mario and Luigi are on vacation where Princess Peach accidentally carried into the depths of the castle. Mario and Luigi venture through a series of rooms where the basics of the game are learned before gathering a petrified pillow. Luigi decides to plop on a bed with the newly found pillow found where a dream portal opens and Peach enters. Mario leaps into the dream portal where he learns about the Pi’illos and the game truly begins.
