Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (JP) (known as Mario & Luigi: Dream Team Bros. in the PAL regions) is an RPG game released for the Nintendo 3DS in July and August of 2013. It is the 4th entry in the Mario & Luigi series and is one of the five games celebrated during The Year of Luigi.


One day, a letter is delivered to the Mushroom Kingdom inviting the residents to come visit Pi'illo Island. A hot air balloon comes and is boarded by Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toadsworth, and several Toads.

However, while the balloon is in midflight, a dark, nightmarish villain (who's name is later revealed to be Antasma later in the game) appears and fights a battle with the Mario Bros. Then, the balloon crashlands onto the island and Luigi gets knocked out.

He eventually shows up with the others a bit later. When they arrive, the guests take a little quiz and earn coins when they answer correctly. Luigi plays too, and afterwards the brothers play a game that can multiply their winnings. Afterwards, they enter the castle and the story begins...


The player controls Mario and Luigi in the real world and Mario and Dreamy Luigi as Mario travels through Luigi's dreams. Players can interact with Luigi, which will activate some Luiginary Works Dreamy Luigi enters that will help Mario in Luigi's dream world.

Also, mini boss battle in the dream world are unlike battles in the real world and the game's 3 preceders, Dreamy Luigi goes inside Mario, making Mario stronger. Mario can use Luiginary Attacks instead of Bros attack in the dream world, where he can use a multitude of Luigis that can morph into a ball, tower, hammer, and other things to help attack enemies.
