Mario & Luigi RPG 3 Screens Show Bowser In Action

mrpg1 Joining Mario and Luigi on their latest RPG adventure is their nemesis and occasional ally in the Mario RPG series, Bowser. King Koopa brings his fiery breath and brute strength to the team. The screenshots show another detail, players will have multiple field abilities. You can see a small menu on the bottom right where pressing Y makes Bowser breath fire and pressing X makes him do something else.


Like the other Mario RPG games timing is important in battle. Well timed presses do more damage when you’re fighting against goombas, bloopers, and walking pot roasts.

    It seems like Bowser is always playable these days. I wonder if he will get his own little game one day. =X

  • X = Punch. That’s a fist, and then he’s punching in a different screen, squid pro roll (did I do it wrong :P) X is punch

    I needa play one of these Mario and Luigi rpgs sometime…..never tried any but they look pretty fun and charming.

    ShinRekka* Yeah I am in the same situation, been looking on ebay for the first game so will probably buy it eventually sealed.

    I think this games sprite work are a bit nice especially the bowser/koopa pics with the goomba and the fire breathing near the top of the page. So looking forward to this release hoping its not worse but better than what I have read about the second game.

  • I want to see a bowser game where he has to save his seven kids from an evil, grand magikoopa wizard. Mario and Princess help.
