Princess Peach's voice has been stolen by Cackletta and replaced with explosives! Mario and Luigi with the help of Bowser follow her trail to the neighboring Beanbean Kingdom, where they interact with a new cast of characters in their quest to stop her.

Battle gameplay further continues the Super Mario RPG and Paper Mario traditions. Rather than merely making selections from a menu as in many RPGs, timing your button presses correctly can inflict or defend from extra damage.

1001 Video Games

The Game Boy Advance version of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.


This is the first ever Nintendo game where Mario does not have his clothes on. Note: He is NOT completely naked, he has a towel on.


Mario and Luigi are actually heard speaking mock-Italian for the first time.
