Mario & Luigi RPG 3 coming to DS next year; Bowser stomach dungeon confirmed!

During the very revealing Nintendo press conference last night/this morning a ton of upcoming, very promising games were shown for the Nintendo DS. Out of all the games that put a smile on my face (for which there were many!), the one that made me thrust my hands down my pants was the reveal of Mario & Luigi RPG 3.

I adore the Mario RPG series. I think every single one of the games is strong and I can’t wait for this new iteration for the DS (Lite and i). While not much is known about this sequel, the story supposedly focuses on a disease that plagues the Mushroom Kingdom. Obviously, Mario and Luigi are tasked with finding a cure. This must explain the screenshot that shows the famous brothers traveling through a dungeon set in Bowser’s stomach. Yeah, that’s right; I am already madly in love with this game.

Speaking of Bower, apparently he plays a bigger role than usual in this game. Like Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars, will he befriend Mario and maybe even be a playable character? The trailer makes it look like it! Hopefully more info for this potential BEST GAME EVER (!) will be revealed soon. In the meantime, check out the below gallery for the first official screens.

What do you think? Are you excited? Super excited? Ultra excited? Or do you hate puppies and all things amazing?
