Paper Mario is back after his last outing with non-paper Mario and Luigi in Paper Jam Bros. (reviewed by us over here). This time, he’s back in whatever papercraft universe he belongs to, along with a metric boat-load of toads, a new companion, and a new weapon that does unusual stuff. All this comes with some old stuff hanging over us from Sticker Star. We get our origami on to review this game, and see whether it’s worth returning to the Paper Mushroom Kingdom.
Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Bros is the fifth installment of the Mario & Luigi series of games, which started with Superstar Saga in back in 2003. The series, for those who have not experienced it yet, is essentially a JPRG starring the eponymous, infamous plumbing brothers (who, in retrospect, haven’t actually done any real plumbing in…years). I grab my markers, my glue, and my construction paper and head for the hills of the Mushroom Kingdom to see what this game is all about.
