Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (Mario & Luigi RPG 4: Dream Adventure in Japan and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. in Europe & Australia) is an upcoming title for the Nintendo 3DS. It is the fourth installment in the Mario & Luigi series. The game will be released in Europe on July 12th, Australia on 13th, Japan on 18th and North America on August 11th.
It is part of "The Year of Luigi" alongside Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon and the New Super Luigi U DLC for New Super Mario Bros. U. The two titles and the DLC are in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Luigi's debut. As such, Luigi has a much bigger role in the game than in the previous Mario & Luigi games. A special edition of Nintendo 3DS XL with a Luigi themed print will be released in Japan as part of the event and include the digital version of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team preinstalled on the SD card.
Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, Toadsworth, and the Toads are invited to Pi'illo Island and travel to the island for sightseeing. While touring the island, Luigi takes a nap on a special pillow which opens a portal to a place called Dream World. This allows Antasma to pull Princess Peach into the world. It is later explained that there are two powers in the Dream World, the Dreamstone and the Darkstone, though the latter was destroyed by Antasma in order to create chunks so it is able to turn the Pi'llows species into stone. Mario and Luigi travel to rescue the princess and free the frozen Pi'llows.
The gameplay seems to shift between Luigi's dream world, where Mario and Luigi move in a 2-D fashion and the regular world, where they freely roam the overworld, unlike the previous three titles. While Mario is playing inside Luigi's dreams, Starlow can move Luigi's face to affect the area, such as spinning platforms. The battles appear to give the player coins, similarly to the Paper Mario series. Due to the shift to 3D, the game also uses a new art style. Badges similar to those in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story seem to make an appearance in this game. Sometimes Gifts may also appear in between battles .
- Purple rock-like enemies with brown, Goomba-like feet (Japanese ユメボー Yumebo, roughly "Dream People". German "Alle")
- Gray rock-like enemies with hands, with faces similar to Junior Shrooboid's or Shrooboid Brat's. They attack in the overworld by tossing boulders.
- Storks, orange drill enemies
- Golden drill enemies
- Pink creatures with green leaves on their heads
- Orange spheres with spikes on their heads
- White ghost-like creatures with black eyes
- A purple, pink and peach goo moster
- A dumbbell-like creature
- A pink and yellow moth creature
- Blue Fly Guys
- Crab-like creatures similar to Sidesteppers.
The battle system in overworld is similar to those in previous titles, but the system in Dream World is different, as Mario will fight in all battles with Luigi's dream power. There are now five categories of attack, as in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. They are Jump, Hammer, Item, Luigi's face (which are Bros. Items in Dream World) or Red Shell (which are Bros. Items in the overworld), and Flee. There can be more than five enemies in battle, as in Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story. The Rank feature returns again. One change is the lack of Lakitus from the level up system.
Bros. Attacks (Special attacks in the overworld)
- Fire Flower
- A Propeller Block like flying disk which makes the Bros. fly and land roughly on the Enemy.
- 3D Red Shell
Luiginary Attacks (Special Attacks in Dream World)
- Balancing on a ball of Luigis and kicking it strongly near the enemies.
- An area called "Pi'illo Island", where the game will presumably take place in.
- Pi'illo Castle
- A town area inhabited by brown creatures resembling Hoohooligans. It also contains a shop.
- A quarry area with fences on the floor and rock enemies.
- A grassy area with mountains.
- Dream World
- A grassy area with flowers.
- An area with wooden floor with orange drill and purple slime enemies.
- A castle with purple rock enemies.
- A dark blue void area with Luigi's face on the background, with "Don't leave me behind, big brother" messages passing through the screen.
- A Bridge which breaks down and leads into a cave.
