In this fourth installment of the popular RPG series Mario & Luigi, the story opens with Princess Peach and her staff, plus brothers Mario and Luigi in tow, being invited for a sightseeing trip to the mysterious Pi’illo Island by its equally mysterious proprietor, Dr Snoozemore. But after an initially hospitable welcoming to the island – albeit with Dr Snoozemore noticeably absent - things take a turn for the worse when Princess Peach is kidnapped and pulled into a Dream World by a new enemy in the series, the ghostly bat king Antasma.
To chase down this new foe and rescue Princess Peach, Mario must enter this Dream World through the dreams of a sleeping Luigi, whose brain is revealed to be on a wavelength with the population of Pi’illo Island, the Pi’illo Folk. Alternating between Luigi’s Dream World and the real world, Mario and Luigi must solve puzzles, battle enemies, and even interact with creations of Luigi’s own imagination in order to succeed!

Adventure with the Mario Bros into a 3D dream world to rescue Princess Peach in Mario & Luigi: Dream Team for Nintendo 3DS.
Mario & Luigi: Dream Team is a fun role playing adventure that takes place in the strangest Mario Bros location yet – Luigi's dreams!
When Princess Peach is kidnapped from Pillow Island, Mario will have to enter a strange dream world called Pi'illo Island to save her, which can only be done by Luigi going to sleep on some magical pillows. As Mario heads forth on his quest, he can be assisted by Dreamy Luigi, Luigi's dream counterpart who can merge with the dream environment – you can even have multiple Dreamy Luigis turn up to help!
The adventures in the dream world will be shown on the upper 3D screen, while Dreamy Luigi can be controlled and manipulated by touching the face of the snoozing Luigi on the touchscreen. Like earlier Mario role-playing games, encountering an enemy will pull Mario and Luigi into a turn based battle, and you'll need to use button commands to dodge enemy attacks, power up your own attacks and perform various combinations. You can even make use of some of the Nintendo 3DS' other fun features, like using the gyroscope to steer a helicopter
