It might appear that the Mario & Luigi series might not be as dead as people thought. According to LetsGoDigital, Nintendo filed a new trademark for the Mario & Luigi name.
This was done in South America on January 9th, 2020. The trademark is intended for products related to video games, cartridges, memory cards, and phone covers, which suggests that there could be new Mario & Luigi games for mobile phones and the Nintendo Switch.
In itself the new trademark sounds promising … let’s hope they will not just make it a smartphone release though. Sure it will be a money-wise decision. But us Switch games want Mario & Luigi for sure!
Mario & Luigi
The new trademark filed by Nintendo is suggesting the company has plans for more entries in the Mario & Luigi series, even though its previous developer, AlphaDream, went bankrupt in 2019.
In 2003, AlphaDream created Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga for the Game Boy Advance, which was an RPG that allowed the player to perform additional interactions during the battle scenes, such as jumping at the correct time to avoid an enemy attack or pressing a button properly in order to deliver a more devastating blow.
