Save the kingdom or rescue a Koopa King.

Love gaming but hate always being the good guy? Play as heroic plumbers or an army of Koopa subjects in Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions.

This 3DS remake of the GBA RPG classic is actually two games in one. In the main game, you can play as the Mario Bros. as they venture to the neighboring Beanbean Kingdom to save Princess Peach from the evil Cackletta.

For aspiring villains, there’s the new Minion Quest mode. Play as Bowser’s loyal underling Captain Goomba and scour the kingdom for your missing King. As you adventure, Koopa Troopas, Boos and Shy Guys join your ranks. Not to mention, you’ll get to find out what really happened to Bowser behind the scenes in Superstar Saga.

Mario and Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser’s Minions releases October 9 on Nintendo 3DS and is available for pre-order on Amazon for $39.96. Prime members get free release-day delivery and a 20% discount at checkout – meaning you get it for $31.99!
