Nintendo has two very distinct RPG series that they’ve developed over the years. The Paper Mario franchise started on the Nintendo 64 and has seen four releases taking it across multiple genres. The Mario & Luigi franchise has been a staple on handhelds since the Game Boy Advance days. Now the two worlds will collide.
Nintendo announced the newest game in the Mario & Luigi series called Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam. This game brings the thinnest Mario of them all into the mix as a third playable character. The two franchises contribute various mechanics in this mash up of franchises.
Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam is set to launch on the 3DS in Spring of 2016.
