Nintendo gave us another look at a new game during their Treehouse Presentation today.

This new game features updated graphics and a brand new mode, "Bowser's Minions".

With better-looking sprites (new shading!), additional content, and even two new amiibo to go with the game upon its debut, there's plenty of reasons to take this colorful journey again. The mode was described as "a storm of activity" with deep strategic elements and skills to master. Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions is a remaster of the Gameboy Advance game, Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga, with updated visuals and gameplay tweaks created to take advantage of the 3DS hardware. Details about amiibo functions will be revealed soon.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions is due out for 3DS on October 6.

Project Cars 2 Release Date Announced
Slightly Mad Studios is the team behind the critically acclaimed GTR® series, Need For Speed® Shift™ & Shift 2 Unleashed®. Along with the trailer, Bandai Namco unleashed a flood of new information in its press release to get you excited.

The game's been given an aesthetic overhaul as well, with the same pixel artwork from the original game, according to Nintendo, but 3D lighting added to make things prettier. Superstar Saga spawned a series of sequels: Partners in Time, Bowser's Inside Story, Luigi's Dream Team, and Paper Jam.

Also new to the game is the pin mechanic, where just like in Google Maps, you can drop pins to remind yourself where you've been and where you'd like to revisit in the future.

New Goomba and Koopa Troopa Amiibo were also announced, although Nintendo hasn't yet confirmed what functionality they will bring to the game.
