Stephen Rosenberg writes: "Since 1996, Nintendo has done the right thing by adding in the turn-based RPG elements into some of their games. This first started with their collaboration with Squaresoft and the release of Super Mario RPG: The Legend of the Seven Stars. A few years later, the oncoming of the Paper Mario series filled the void us RPG lovers had in our souls. Not too far down the line, the turn-based (and highly appreciated) Mario games made the jump to the hand held systems with Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga (Gameboy Advance) and Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time (Nintendo DS). After all of this role-playing success, Nintendo has decided to take a chance by making a same-system sequel, and having our two favorite plumber brothers jumping back into action on the Nintendo DS. The scenario of their adventures however, is as original as can be."
