A surprisingly effort-filled remake of the first Mario & Luigi, which retains the same amusing script as before but revamps the graphics and presentation.

Superstar Saga is the real meat of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions, and it's nothing but approachable, engaging, real fun and the addition of the wearisome Bowser's Minions doesn't take away from it. There's nothing new in Superstar Saga itself, but what's there is worth it.

A stunning visual overhaul and subtle gameplay enhancements make this already charming, funny RPG even better.

For many, tacking playable goons onto Superstar Saga won't be enough to revisit the world of Beanbean Kingdom mostly because the campaign is still the same uneven adventure it was before. But even though many will see the minion angle as a throwaway, I loved creating and molding my own little army bit by bit, and found it to be a worthwhile distraction.

Nintendo knows how to make good remakes and Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser's Misions is another example of this. With this remake of the original game, Nintendo has made it a pleasure to return to the Jewish Kingdom, not only with Mario and Luigi, also with Bowser's henchmen in a mode that will hook you and leave you wanting more.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions is a great remake that ticks all the right boxes. Not only does the original game hold up incredibly well, but there are plenty of design and mechanical changes that make the game feel fresh. Bowser's Minions is a great addition that complements the original game nicely. This is a great starting point for the Mario & Luigi series and is wholeheartedly recommended.

The years have been kind to Superstar Saga, giving us a remarkable remake.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and Bowser's MInions is a nice little game for Nintendo 3DS. Bowser's Minions is a great inclusion. Although in the end-game it's gets a little boring and repetitive Nintend surely knows how to create happy and safe places in their games.
