Mario & Luigi Embrace Their Italian Heritage In The Latest Dream Team Trailer

    August 8, 2013

If you frequent Internet culture, you would know that Luigi is a pretty big fan of spaghetti. Nintendo has downplayed Mario and Luigi’s Italian heritage in recent years, but it’s making a comeback in the latest ads for Mario & Luigi: Dream Team.

In the latest adventure, Mario and Luigi are cooking up some spaghetti at a resort. The big reveal is that Luigi prefers his paste al dente. Beyond his culinary preferences, we also learn that Luigi is apparently a narcoleptic.

The ads for Mario & Luigi: Dream Team continue to be absolutely delightful. The above might be the best one yet for its bold and frank discussion of Italian archetypes.

Mario & Luigi: Dream Team launches on August 11 exclusively for the Nintendo 3DS.
