Releasing on December 4th for the 3DS, the fifth installment of the popular Mario & Luigi RPG series will see Paper Mario jump off the page and team up with the Mario Brothers to take on not one but TWO Bowsers!
When Luigi accidentally opens a mysterious book hidden away in Peach’s Castle, he gets more than he bargained for when characters from the Paper Mario universe spill out of the pages and start running amok. Players must take control of our trio to defeat Bowser and Paper Bowser and bring the Paper Mario characters back to their original world.
Adding Paper Mario to their ranks means that Mario and Luigi have even more ways to explore, solve puzzles and take down any enemies foolish enough to mess with the brothers. In a first for the series, players can now battle with Trio Attacks, as well as use Paper Mario’s unique copy ability, allowing him to create duplicates of himself in order to bolster his attack power. Paper Mario has some tricks up sleeves such as his ability to slip through tiny cracks to areas inaccessible to the three-dimensional brothers.
Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros. will also see the introduction of Paper Craft Battles, tasking players with taking down the Bowsers’ forces by dancing. Craft battles see our heroes take part in rhythm-based events in order to power a giant papercraft and use it to defeat giant papercrafts from Bowser’s army.
