During today's Nintendo Direct conference, the company announced a new game in the Mario & Luigi RPG series. It's part of what Nintendo is dubbing the "year of Luigi," and puts the focus on Mario's overlooked brother in green. Mario & Luigi: Dream Team will release this summer for 3DS.

The game takes place in Luigi's dreams, allowing him to be the hero. During the short gameplay demonstration, we saw a star sidekick (via stylus control) touching Luigi's face and pulling on his mustache to wake him up. Inside the standard game segments, several dozen Luigis were used to defeat enemies and solve puzzles.

      This looks like the kind of crazy stuff paper mario was doing, odd they wouldn't just continue it with that franchise, but whatever, looks cool., shame they won't make these games for their console .

      I'll never buy a DS, but I'd consider a WiiU if it had a ton of stuff like this on it.
