    A great remaster of perhaps Mario's best RPG ever

    The Mario & Luigi series of RPG titles started in 2003 on the Game Boy Advance and has had new releases every few years since, with "Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam" being the latest release. Bowser's Inside Story, which is the third game in the series, originally launched on the Nintendo DS in 2009 and is arguably the best in the series so far. The humor, gameplay and story is immensely enjoyable, and this remaster of that game gives the game a new coat of paint to bring it up to 2019 standards. Definitely a worthwhile purchase.

    ill start out by saying that if you've played this series before you know what you're getting with this. This game does not disappoint. it is essentially a port from the original DS game but updated the graphics and looks great! For the record the game is not in 3D but still tons of fun and in no way is the lack of 3d bothersome. If you're a fan of the series its definitely a worthy buy. If you've never played this series before i would definitely recommend picking this one up!

    Somehow I missed out on this gem for the DS so I was thrilled when Nintendo announced a remake of this hilarious game! Graphic update is very nice, good fun, alot of laughs with the excellent writing. I am so glad I can play this finally! Not sure if there is enough new content for returning players but for myself, this is all new! Now we just need Partners in Time and we will be set!

    Though it seems that the big N is releasing the same games over and over, just tweaked, these new releases are actually greatly improved. This goes for all the switch and 3ds re-releases. This game, I played the original, but this one is steps above that one. Excellent adventure in the M&L line of games.

    This game does a good job of recreating the major plot points of the original version. The music is remade and I thought that it was great. The mechanics have been altered slightly, but it turned out well.

    I still own the original release of this game, and now I can play it with updated graphics. This game have a very good music and story, making fawful one of the best villains in Mario Universe. And with the new side story, this sure is a very good add to your collection.

    Having played the original I couldn’t help myself but to purchase the 3DS release. This isn’t a simple cut and past as Nintendo goes that extra mile to make this release stand on its own. From redrawn artwork to extra content, your definitely getting your money’s worth.

    Another classic Mario RPG has made its way to 3DS in this remake of Bowser's Inside Story. The updated graphics and enjoyable Bowser Jr.'s Journey wonderfully complement a title that was already packed full of fun gameplay variety and hilarious absurdity.

    This game has all the classic Super Mario RPG aspects I love about this entire series of games. It's nice to have a not so serious RPG to play for small bits at a time. None of the fights are super long, so it's perfect for a casual gamer.

    I loved this game as a kid and I'm so happy to finally have it again. Graphics are great and it's a great addition to my collection. I don't care too much for the bowser jr mode though, but it's great to revisit this game in a new light

    I would say this is pretty much a port of the old version of the game but if you missed out on it then this is a must buy. If you have played it before then i dont think there is anything that new but it is worth adding it your collection.

    Worth dusting off the 3ds

    I really enjoyed the first inside story, and when I heard they were re-releasing it with new content I was excited. I haven't used my 3ds at all since the switch came out, but this game made me dust it off. I have to say it was worth it.

    This game originally came out one the DS which I didn't have a chance to play so an updated version of a great game is wonderful. The gameplay and control are easy to pick up and make this a very enjoyable game to play.

    Bowser's Inside Story is easily my favorite of the series. This remake won't disappoint those who have played it before on the DS as the Bowser Jr. story is great and definitely better than Superstar Saga's Minions story.

    This is quite a fun little RPG for the 3DS. It isn't as deep as a Final Fantasy, but that's not the point of it. It's great to pick up and play in little chunks, and would be fine as a first RPG experience for folks.

    This is the most recent release of the continued storyline that began with Super Mario RPG the Legend of the Seven Stars. Nintendo knows what people want and they deliver. This is a great addition to the series.

    This game remakes all the artwork from the original DS version. Characters look more polished and detailed. I love the new art, and the game is just as fun as its source material!

    It's a duo pack of 2 awesome games in 1. Bowsers Inside Story was fun on the DS, so most people should know what to expect. I'm just starting Bowser Jr's Journey and it's very enjoyable so far.

    Another lackluster, phoned in Port from Nintendo. No stereoscopic 3D and barely upgraded graphics from the original DS. Why are we giving them money for this? Skip this or get it on sale

    A fun game where you can play as Bowser, Luigi, Mario and Bowser Jr. Combat is a little similar to the tactics in Pokemon, but easier. Good writing with some good humor.
