Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey
Mario & Luigi Bowser’s Inside Story returns, this time to the 3DS in a new version of the original which might not be a revolution but brings its mix of charming visuals, soundtrack, gameplay mechanics and humour. The additional Bowser Jr. component does not bring extraordinary changes but this is a good and enjoyable experience that brings back one of the most memorable RPGs featuring some of Nintendo's most beloved characters.

The effectiveness of the game's humor doesn't always tie back to the concept of Bowser as a frustrated, impotent vessel.
Bowser Jr.'s Journey may not offer a ton of new content, but the core game is as good as ever. It might not be as enticing for returning players, but those on the hunt for a fun, relaxing RPG with quirky humor and a silly story will feel right at home.
You go inside of him, so it really couldn't get any deeper than that.
Ten years after the original, Mario & Luigi's third adventure makes a great come bakc, thanks to its graphic renewal and the addition of a new campaign, once again staring Bowser Jr. Whether you already played the game or not, this reedition of one of the best episodes the series delivers should definitively be worth your time.

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey stands as a well-made remake of a game that was excellent to begin with, polishing up the original in small ways and adding some extra content that meaningfully establishes its own identity. If you've ever been a fan of the Mario & Luigi series (or are looking for a reason to dust off the old 3DS), do yourself a favour and pick this game up. Although Bowser Jr.'s Journey is just an ‘okay' addition, the inventive battles, great writing and creative gameplay of the main game make this one an easy recommendation.
Don't let Mario and Luigi's top billing fool you. This game is as much about Bowser and his spunky son as it is about Nintendo's popular plumbers. Bowser's Inside Story is a great remake of the DS classic, boasting JRPG gameplay that still feels fresh and fun a decade later. The addition of Bowser Jr.'s Adventure, meanwhile, gives the young Koopa prince a much-deserved turn in the spotlight along with the Koopalings. Battles in the main game can be a bit too long while Bowser Jr.'s skirmishes could be a bit more fleshed out. Overall, however, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story + Bowser Jr.'s Journey is a must-have for your 3DS library.
Already the best game in the Mario & Luigi series, the new graphics and presentation raise it to new heights on the 3DS!
