According to new data found in the 3DS eShop server, Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga DX could be making its way to the handheld for a surprise re-release / remaster. This information comes from "well known" hacker @SciresM who has previous history with id information confirming The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's code ahead of time. The hacker tweeted the eShop listing along with the id for Ever Oasis, fueling both excitement and speculation.

Superstar Saga originally released on the Game Boy Advance back in 2003, taking the Mario Bros out of the Mushroom Kingdom to the colourful land of the Beanbean Kingdom. Here the brothers must try to defeat the wicked Cackletta and her formidable sidekick Fawful after they steal Princess Peach's voice. The GBA title was the first in the Mario & Luigi RPG series and was very much the catalyst for its success.

No further evidence has been shown so it would be acceptable to take this information tentatively. This would be an unexpected release by Nintendo, however knowing the company this is not outwith the realms of possibility, especially as it's evidently committed to maintaining interest in the 3DS.

What do you think to this rumour? Could we see the original Mario & Luigi outing get a jazzed up 'DX' release on the 3DS eShop?
