Mario and Luigi RPG due out on August 11.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team will launch for 3DS at retail and via download on August 11, Nintendo has announced.

The game is set on a mysterious island called Pi’illo Island where mysterious dreams exist. The story begins when Mario and company are invited to the island for sight-seeing. But while everyone is touring, Princess Peach is mysteriously kidnapped and pulled into Luigi’s dream world. The gate to his dream world, however, only appears when Luigi sleeps on a magical pillow.

It’s up to Mario to go back and forth between the real world and Luigi’s dream world to rescue Princess Peach. In the real world, Mario and Luigi must cooperate with each other to solve various obstacles. Brother attacks will allow the pair to do greater damage. And new battle sequences, some utilizing the 3DS’s unique capabilities, have been added.

In the dream world, players must interact with Luigi’s face on the bottom screen to make changes and solve puzzles on the upper screen. Players must also control a large number of Luigis in the dream world.

    I hope this game has leveling system.

    This is starting to sound like a Kingdom Hearts ripoff

    It’s all to clear Nintendo has lost sight. Every game they make looks the same now, and it’s no wonder. They’re all 3D or 2.5D.

    I miss 2D.

      To be fair, this looks a lot better than all of their other 3DS Mario universe games, discounting Paper Mario: Sticker Star.

      Paper Mario: Sticker Star looks great.

    I’m planning on buying this game because I’ve really enjoyed all of the Mario RPGs so far. I just hope that this game isn’t too gimmicky. I’ll put my faith in the devs.
