A new addition to the Mario & Luigi RPG series of games has been announced today for the 3DS, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.

Nintendo President and CEO, Satoru Iwata, revealed the title during Nintendo Direct after dubbing 2013 the 'Year of Luigi', with the game making its way to our handhelds this summer in Europe and the US - no specific dates were given.

As the title suggests, the game takes place in good old Luigi's dreams, with Mario's sleeping brother solving puzzles and defeating enemies as he snores.
