About the game

ONE GIANT ADVENTURE IN TWO MASSIVE WORLDS
One day in the Mushroom Kingdom, a letter arrives from a mysterious Dr. Snoozemore, inviting Mario™, Luigi™ and Princess Peach™ to Pi’illo Island. A free vacation, from a complete stranger? What could possibly go wrong? Leap into the world of Luigi’s dreams—where anything can happen—in this hilarious action RPG.
The Dream World
WELCOME TO THE DREAM WORLD
When Luigi naps, a portal to the Dream World appears—and you’re plunged into the wild landscapes of Luigi’s imagination! In this fantastical land, Mario teams up with Dreamy Luigi, the hero Luigi always knew he could be. Together, Dreamy Luigi and Mario must continue the quest to free the petrified Pi’illo Folk.
Interacting with sleeping Luigi in the real world can have a big impact in the Dream World. Sometimes one of these special moves is exactly what you need to get past a seemingly insurmountable obstacle.
You can never have too many Luigis! A big group of Luigis, called Luiginoids, appears when you interact with Luigi-shaped star constellations in the Dream World. These acrobatic heroes can morph into different shapes to help Mario keep moving.
Unleash a Luiginary Attack and watch as Mario, Dreamy Luigi, and the Luiginoids pull off some spectacular—and powerful—moves.
Stretching across both Nintendo 3DS screens, Giant Battles pit the Bros. against gigantic foes in a colossal fight to the finish!
The Real World
To save Princess Peach and the Pi’illo Folk, Mario and Luigi must tackle puzzles and take on enemies in both the real world and the Dream World.
In the real world, the brothers always stick together—and you control them both as they run, jump, and battle their way through ever-changing environments on Pi’illo Island.
Besides their standard abilities such as running and jumping, Mario and Luigi use special bro-based moves to take on any obstacle.
Luckily for Mario and Luigi, they’ve got a secret weapon: Bros. Attacks. These supercharged moves dish out a huge amount of damage.
To unlock Bros. Attacks, just look for Attack Pieces hidden around each area of Pi’illo Island—find a complete set of ten and you’ll get a new Bros. Attack to use in battle. They cost Bro Points, though, so use them wisely!
Meet The Characters
An invitation to visit Pi’illo Island seems like too good an opportunity to pass up. But Mario’s soon called upon to do what he does best: Save the day! This time, he has to battle enemies both in the real world—and the wacky world of Luigi’s imagination.
When Luigi sleeps on one of the island’s stone pillows, a magical portal to the Dream World appears. And in Luigi’s dreams, a Dreamy Luigi teams up with Mario. With special attack and dreamy new abilities, this is Luigi as you’ve never seen him before.
It wouldn’t be a real adventure for Mario and Luigi if Princess Peach didn’t end up in trouble! Try as she might to enjoy the trip to Pi’illo Island, she’s soon kidnapped by a mysterious force and taken to the Dream World.
It wouldn’t be the same without Bowser, so it’s a good thing he turns up to Pi’illo Island, too—univited, of course. He’s pretty peeved when he finds out someone else has kidnapped Princess Peach!
Prince Dreambert is the prince of the trapped Pi’illo Folk. He needs Mario and Luigi’s help to save his people from a stony fate as petrified pillows.
This evil bat king was once trapped in the Dream World by the Pi’illo Folk but he used the last of his power to turn the Pi’illo folk into petrified pillows. Now he’s back and ready to take revenge on those who sealed him away.
Spawn hundreds of Luigis that mold into different forms like bouncy towers, wrecking balls and giant hammers for special attacks or to pass obstacles.
Poke, tickle and move a sleeping Luigi on the lower touch screen to alter the dream world on the upper screen.
Master two worlds by switching between controlling both brothers when battling in the real world and controlling Mario and an army of Luigis in dream-world battles.
With the Nintendo 3DS system turned sideways like a book, experience larger-than-life Giant Battles with a gargantuan-size Luigi on one screen and the enemy on the other screen.
Find new items and gear to customize Mario & Luigi to fit your play style.
To help players through the adventure, the game offers various support features, like a Hint System that offers tips on surviving a particular engagement, or an Easy Mode to make a particular battle easier.
