In a surprising twist, the universe does not implode when some of the Mushroom Kingdom’s most recognizable characters like Princess Peach and Bowser meet their Paper Mario doppelgangers in the Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam game!



Brimming with the playful humor fans expect from the Mario & Luigi series, Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam answers a slew of uproarious questions:


What happens in a game with two Princess Peaches instead of one? How will Bowser react when his paper doppelganger shows up in the same game? Will the paper characters make it back into the book? Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam is full of surprising scenarios and clever writing that all fans will appreciate – even ones that have never played a Mario & Luigi game before!


While exploring the vast and varied world, Mario, Luigi and Paper Mario must dig deep into their signature moves and work together in unexpected ways. Since Paper Mario joins the fun, he can assist in battle in multiple ways, like creating copies of himself to help defeat enemies and using his unique paper moves to access hard-to-reach areas like slipping through a crack in a rock. Other times, all three heroes will have to work together by performing Trio Attacks in battle, throwing Ninja Stars made out of Paper Mario or crashing down on enemies by riding meteorites. Special Battle Cards and amiibo-activated Character Cards can also be used to turn the tide of battle.
