My best guess is to keep it consistent; personally, while the original three games will definitely always have their own vibe and feel, graphics-wise at least, it's not like this (the Paper Jam and Dream Team style, that is) is the worst substitute they could go with. Alphadream could have been lazy, opting for the polygonal route; what we got instead was a sprite/polygon mix where the sprites go out of their way to imitate polygons, and the result, in my modest opinion, is flat-out glorious.

@AlexSora89 Not only that, but they also went out of their way to emulate little things like the Bros's battle animations and stances. Seems insignificant, but stuff like that was very much part of the game's personality (everyone loves to imagine them dancing!).

Another quality-of-life change I noticed was possibly no longer needing to grind for Advanced moves. Instead they seem readily available, but at an increased BP cost.

One thing I'd really like to see from the modern era is the rank-up system. Especially Paper Jam's, it allowed you to really tailor and distinguish each bro.

@meleebrawler
Quality-of-life changes are becoming the selling points behind any video game remake. Crash Bandicoot N-Sane Trilogy, despite not being a game I've played, has done a terrific job at this, so the bulk of this new remake - namely, the Superstar Saga part alone - is going to be more comfort for the players as well. Healing blocks are already in (a Mario RPG where players can't even buy healing items - and as such they have to survive the early portion of the game - until they reach the kingdom's capital city just wouldn't fly today), but later M&L games have introduced boss rematches, clever ways for players to recharge their health and their mana by attacking, and so on. Seeing all this good stuff in the new M&L:SS would give it its own identity.

I'm so sad about the flight suit Koopas (Boweser Baddies). I loved their designs when I was young, and used to play pretend with them in my imagination haha, I was like 6 or so. Kinda sad to see them get retconned. Oh well.

Nintendo, just let original characters be original. Be your own you!

Can we start another Color Splash esque revolution again? Like another hashtag. This way the higher ups at Nintendo will get the memo and stop restricting AlphaDream and IntelligentSystems

Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga DX + Bowsers Minions looks perfect.... except for the needless removal of the Flight Suit Koopas. Never going to get over that.

@TheSuperStarSaga
Okay, okay. The flight suit Koopas, admittedly, were cool.

@TheSuperStarSaga I do miss the originality.

All these removals are disappointing, I'm glad they at least used an original character to replace psycho kamek rather than a generic one.

@Dev
Damn, what a bummer. I also worried that was the reason for removing Psycho Kamek, too, but to be fair this allows for some canon welding with Toadley's appearance in Bowser's Inside Story.

Gonna check the Japanese direct in a minute.

@TheSuperStarSaga
Saw it. Noticed a lot of QOL changes carried over from Paper Jam (Bros.). Not complaining in the slightest.

@Meowpheel Remember the region maps in the original? Though I will admit the space between rooms is a bit much.

That doesn't really compare to the maps in this one. Here you literally have miniature versions of the actual rooms conected by long lines. Probably with GPS functions and other magitek.

Besides, you didn't have those maps around all the time.

It's obviously the same rooms and places connected in the same way as before- I'm just saying, the maps they use in the newer games kinda destroy the illusion that Mario is in a "real" place, instead of a series of interconected "rooms".
